We’ve been hearing all about Louis Theroux’s ‘My Scientology Movie’ for ages now and although we get little teasers every now and then, it feels like we’ve been waiting an eternity for this film to drop. After all, it does involve the one and only Louis scouting out and exposing the truth behind the bizarre cult that is Scientology. It’s the perfect premise for a documentary.

That’s why we were delighted to see that Louis has finally released the official trailer for the film and, oh my fuck, does it look insane. Unlike his usual lighthearted style (it still has that of course) the clip gives this documentary the credit and impact that it no doubt deserves. After all, Louis quite literally risked his life and his reputation in order to bring us the truth and you can see that come through in the trailer.
So stoked that he’s got Marty Rathburn, former Scientologist executive, to help him reenact how the Scientology hierarchy works behind closed doors. Just makes us secure in the knowledge that this is going to expose the real truth behind the fucked up workings of this esoteric and secretive cult. And we’ve got Louis’ lovely humour to ensure that it’s going to be an entertaining watch. Perfect.
Now we just need to hold tight and wait for its release – Louis himself indicated that it will be autumn of this year and he’s a pretty trustworthy guy, so let’s hang on to that promise.
In the meantime, keep yourself entertained with ‘No Context Louis’.
