New Trailer for Louis Theroux’s Doc ‘My Scientology Movie’
Magnolia Pictures has released the official trailer for Louis Theroux’s My Scientology Movie, the “first-hand journey” thing which is going to be a roller coaster ride of a watch.
The film about the Church of Scientology re-enacts stories told by ex-members of the organization, in an attempt to better understand the way this strange religion operates.
Theroux’s upcoming feature length documentary is set for release on October 7th in the U.K. and arrives in January in the United States. Watch the latest My Scientology Movie trailer in the player below.
“Do I look like I’m brainwashed to you?”
Louis Theroux hits the big screen in his first feature documentary, LOUIS THEROUX: MY SCIENTOLOGY MOVIE, created in collaboration with director John Dower and two-time Academy Award® winning producer Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugar Man, Man on Wire).
Following a long fascination with the religion, and with a lot of experience dealing with eccentric human behaviour, incomparable British broadcaster Louis Theroux won’t take no for an answer when his request to enter the Church of Scientology’s Los Angeles headquarters is turned down. Theroux’s insatiable curiosity motivates him to understand what life inside the Church is really like, and with the aid of former second-in-command at the Church, Mark ‘Marty’ Rathbun, he uses actors to replay incidents people claim they experienced with high profile members such as Tom Cruise and leader David Miscavige.
Suffused with a good dose of humour and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, LOUIS THEROUX: MY SCIENTOLOGY MOVIE proves that what people do in the name of religion can be truly stranger than fiction.
