Fahrenheit 11/9 release date revealed by Michael Moore
Michael Moore has announced on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the release date for his upcoming hot button documentary Fahrenheit 11/9, which focuses on the 2016 United States presidential election and the subsequent presidency of Donald Trump. The Fahrenheit 11/9 release date is September 21, which corresponds with the release of the Jack Black horror/fantasy The House with a Clock in Its Walls, the Oscar Isaac drama Life Itself, the indie crime thriller Assassination Nation and and the Keira Knightley biopic Colette.
Given that Moore’s 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 grossed over $222 million dollars, a release date in the height of election season with no major franchise tentpoles could give the film a major shot at finding a wide audience. Check out the video from the Colbert interview below, which includes a short clip from the movie featuring Moore at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club.
Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 is a provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live. It will explore the two most important questions of the Trump Era: How the f**k did we get here, and how the f**k do we get out? It’s the film to see before it’s too late.
Moore, an Academy Award-winning director, is helming the film. The “11/9” in the title refers to the day Donald Trump was declared President of the United States, at 2:29AM in the morning of November 9th, 2016. But months before that infamous night, Moore had already begun ruminating on what could be done to stop the, according to him, “carnage Trump would inflict while president.” 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. Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states.
Fahrenheit 11/9 will be presented with the mix of outrage and mischievous humor that has made Moore the most successful documentary filmmaker in the world. To make the Trump documentary, Moore has reunited with his acclaimed team from Fahrenheit 9/11 — Oscar-nominated documentary directors/producers Meghan O’Hara, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal.
Filming on Moore’s new Trump documentary has been done under a strict cloak of secrecy. “No matter what you throw at him, it hasn’t worked,” says Moore. “No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting… That all ends with this movie.”
