Michael Moore drops surprise Trump film

“Michael Moore in TrumpLand” will have a free pre-screening Tuesday night in New York, he announced on Twitter.

The movie is apparently based on his failed efforts to stage a one-man show about Trump in an Ohio theater. Moore said it was canceled because he was told he was too controversial.

Moore is known for left-leaning political activism and his fierce opposition to the Republican presidential nominee.

“See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election,” according to the synopsis offered by the IFC Center theater in Brooklyn.

The film’s regular run at the theater began Wednesday.

Moore, who attended Tuesday’s screening, somewhat famously predicted that Trump would win the Republican primaries.

Moore backed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries. He has not endorsed Hillary Clinton, citing her support for the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 while serving as a New York senator.

It is Moore’s second film release this year, after “Where to Invade Next.” In that movie, he played a pseudo conqueror who plants the U.S. flag wherever he goes, baffling onlookers.
