On Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, filmmaker Michael Moore revealed the title and some details about his new film which takes aim at President Donald Trump.
Would this be considered a “sequel” to Fahrenheit 9/11?
Film director Michael Moore is no stranger to controversy. Known for creating documentaries on divisive issues, Moore has as many detractors as he does supporters. Perhaps his most famous film of all is Fahrenheit 9/11, which focuses on George W. Bush’s presidency and the War on Terror. That film would become the highest-grossing documentary at the box office ever, and Moore’s next film just might replicate that success.
On last night’s Late Show, Moore revealed the title of his next movie: Fahrenheit 11/9. The date of 11/9 refers to November 9, 2016, or the day Donald Trump officially became the president-elect. Currently seen by many Americans as a very dark day, Moore’s film will explore that fateful night and the events leading up to it, as well as the fallout.
While Moore can’t reveal too much about the film as it’s still being edited, he did bring along a clip with him to show the audience. In the video, Moore visits Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. With Trump inside the building, Trump attempts to bargain his way inside, insisting they tell Trump he’s there and wants to talk.
Of course, the clip cuts off before we see what happens next. Moore does tell Colbert he was in the building for at least eleven minutes. When asked if he was civil, Moore responds, “I am as civil as any Eagle Scout, Catholic, altar boy could be when confronted with the devil.”
