Moore links Trump's political victory to numerous country's biggest crises and issues, including the rise of white supremacists, as the featured trailer above is highlighted with Moore spraying water from Flint, Michigan on a governor's home, and interviewing survivors of the Parkland shooting.

Moore's controversial 2004 documentary "Farenheit 9/11", which explored former President George W. Bush's War on Terror, is the highest-grossing documentary of all time.

Michael Moore is giving an early peek at his upcoming Fahrenheit 11/9 with a trailer (see it below).

In the trailer, Moore also hoses down Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's lawn with water he says is from Flint, a city that made headlines for the unsafe amounts of lead in its water sources.

HuffPost also premiered a trailer for Fahrenheit 11/9, which drops on September 21.

The movies is expected to hit American theatres on September 21. His new documentary's title is a reference to that film and the day after Trump was voted into office: November 9, 2016. Conservatives won't watch it (unless they convince themselves to hate-watch it to somehow "own the libs") and liberals may be too exhausted with the onslaught of political news to give it much thought.

-Michael MooreThe ultimate message of film-which Moore describes as a "comedy/horror documentary"-appears to be a bridge between the argument that Trump presents an existential and unique threat and this message to those who oppose him: Stop despairing".

The documentary will premiere at this year's Toronto film festival before a USA release on 21 September. "No matter what you throw at him, it hasn't worked", says Moore.

"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out", Moore said. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with".
