Michael Moore predicted in June 2016 that then-candidate Donald Trump would win the presidency by flipping the normally Democratic presidential voting states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania:

Now, Moore is anticipating that his secretly filmed anti-Trump documentary will dissolve the teflon shield Trump enjoys.
“No matter what you throw at him, it hasn’t worked. No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Facts, reality, brains cannot defeat him,” Moore said in a statement. “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.”

The documentary’s title Fahrenheit 11/9, is a reference to the day Trump was declared president, as well as a play on another Moore documentary – Fahrenheit 9/11. That film explored the presidency of George W. Bush, as well as the War on Terror. Moore has reunited with the team from “Fahrenheit 9/11,” including noted film producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein who own the worldwide rights to the documentary:

The Weinstein brothers had this to say, “There is no greater part of what we can do right now than to have the power to bring Michael Moore to a mass audience. When we had the opportunity to work with him on ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ we were so persistent that we ultimately had to part ways from Disney and we lost our beloved Miramax, named after our parents, because we believed so strongly in the message. The movie broke all records then, and we plan to do so again. This movie will have one of the most innovative distribution plans ever. Now more than ever, Michael’s appetite for the truth is crucial. We are ecstatic to be a part of this revolution.”
