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. And even if it does contain some massive revelation, Moore himself said it right there: by now Trump has built his entire presidency on statements that would have gotten anyone else kicked out of Washington, so why would we ever believe that he'll get taken down by a documentary?
The trailer includes footage of Trump rallies, neo-Nazi protests, Roger Stone, Parkland shooting survivors, and Moore himself hosing down the gated lawn of MI governor Rick Snyder with water from Flint.
That last part seems like a naive statement, and unless Moore is hiding some bombshell reveal in his movie, I feel like this film isn't going to have much of an impact on the national conversation. "Donald Trump is an evil genius".
Moore is famous for this sort of political outrage. Moore won the Academy Award for best documentary for his 2002 film "Bowling for Columbine".
'Superman' star Margot Kidder died from 'self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose'
Her film "Robber's Roost" was in pre-production, and the final film she worked on was 2017's " The Neighborhood ". The death of Margot Kidder - who played the iconic role of Lois Lane in " Superman " - has been ruled a suicide.
Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" explored the presidency of George W. Bush and the War on Terror. Now, Moore has found a new form for this highly original title with Fahrenheit 11/9. In June of 2016, Michael Moore famously and publicly predicted that Trump would indeed win the White House in November by winning the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
Moore, who is known for his antagonistic style, calls Trump the "last president of the United States" and follows his election campaign in 2016, his first year in office, and how Trump's victory has led to division and confrontation in the U.S. over issues of immigration, the far right, fake news, and white supremacy. This, coupled with the allusion to the dismal world of Fahrenheit 451, is a clear indication of Michael Moore's belief that we are truly in dire straits. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the Federal Bureau of Investigation or an adult film star will save the country. It's the lazy way out. We don't need hope.
