Al Gore's latest climate change documentary hits theaters next month, but filmmakers have some new editing to do. That's because the final cut of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power will include President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, reports the Wrap. Mike Allen at Axios reports that Trump's decision will likely be the new ending, with the film expected to play a central role for advocates pushing back against the president's move. It's a sequel to the decade-old An Inconvenient Truth. (Gore himself criticized Trump's decision as "reckless and indefensible.")
