Michael Moore's Trump documentary will release in September

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Trailer: Michael Moore Doc Targets Mid-Term Elections

Moore released the footage Thursday, six weeks before the documentary hits theaters on September 21.

Moore has spoken out voraciously against Trump for months, encouraging the president's detractors to "put [their] bodies on the line" to stop his policies. "That all ends with this movie".

It's the latest offering from Moore aimed directly at the effect of Trump following on from his filmed one-man talk Michael Moore in TrumpLand and his Broadway show The Terms of My Surrender.

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore told the online media outlet.

The new trailer includes a Michigan-centric trip to Gov. Rick Snyder's home, where Moore pulls out a fire hose and sprays "Flint Water" out of a tanker truck and over the fence onto the property.

Speaking with HuffPost, Moore described the motives behind his new film.

Alan Shearer And Ian Wright Make Their Premier League Predictions
A club that's spent the money they've spent in the past few seasons and the players they've got [should be challenging]. If I felt we could not improve the team I would call my chairman and say: "I leave".

Following its TIFF premiere, "Fahrenheit 11/9" will land in theatres September 21.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the last president of the United States", Moore narrates over footage of Trump, in a trailer released by HuffPost on Thursday.

Moore has previously said Trump will win the next presidential election in 2020 but speaking to chat show host Bill Maher in June, he said: "I'm finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls".

Throughout the trailer, there are snippets that show the wide range of topics that will be covered in the documentary, including the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, the emboldening of white nationalists, an increase in toxic nationalism, as well as NY congressional democratic primary victor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Asked if the film provides a "glimmer of hope", Moore shot back, "Fuck hope".
