Scientology Documentary ‘Going Clear’ Gets October DVD, VOD Release

FilmRise has acquired U.S. DVD and non-exclusive VOD rights from Content Media to Alex Gibney’s Scientology documentary “Going Clear,” Variety has learned exclusively.

FilmRise will release “Going Clear” on DVD and Blu-ray on October 6, and on VOD platforms, including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Google Play, Sony PlayStation and Xbox, non-exclusively on October 30.

“Going Clear” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and debuted on HBO on March 29. It’s been nominated for seven 2015 Emmy Awards. “Though the lid was blown off the Church of Scientology long ago, Alex Gibney’s powder-keg documentary, ‘Going Clear,’ should certainly rattle the walls, if not shake them to their very foundations,” Variety critic Scott Foundas wrote in his review.

The Church of Scientology has reacted negatively to the film, blasting film critics who gave the movie positive reviews and asserting that the film’s assertions are inaccurate.
