Fahrenheit 11/9 will see Moore sink his teeth into the phenomenon of Donald Trump and all the unusual things that have come with it - the emergence of the alt-right, total reversals of decades of American foreign policy, and a society more disillusioned than ever.

Like "Fahrenheit 9/11", which tackled the impact of George W. Bush's presidency on society, Moore appears to be using this movie to present how Donald Trump's presidency happened and what it could mean for the USA further down the line.

While Trump's election in 2016 is the obvious pivot for the trailer, the documentary appears to explore a broader raft of issues which the United States is tackling. There's footage of KKK cross burnings and Trump speeches, interviews with Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and in one of his trademark stunts, Moore uses a hose to spray water on the front yard of MI governor Rick Snyder.

In an interview with HuffPost, Moore describes Trump as an "evil genius" and speaks to the potential power of his new film. "That all ends with this movie".

The title itself references one of Moore's most famous documentaries, Fahrenheit 9/11, which focused on the country after the election of George W. Bush and the events that unfolded after the September 11 attacks in 2001.

In his conclusion, Trump indicated to the news outlet that another of the film's underlying messages will be that it will organized action, not hope, that will be crucial in defeating Trump.

Fahrenheit 11/9 hits theaters on September 21.

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore said about the documentary. They're getting steamrolled by a tyrant because Trump understands media and understands the country he lives in more than those that cover him do.
