Michael J. Lindell, founder and CEO of the embattled My Pillow bedding company, said he plans to release a three-hour movie Friday about purported fraud in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

The film, which Mr. Lindell said is called “Absolute Proof,” is unlikely to quell criticisms he and his company are currently facing for him pushing conspiracy theories about the election’s outcome.

In interviews promoting the film Wednesday, Mr. Lindell claimed he made it after receiving “100% proof” that President Trump was defeated in November’s race due to an alleged Chinese cyberattack.

Mr. Lindell also repeated unfounded claims about votes being supposedly “flipped” in favor of President Biden, called Mr. Trump “the real president” and described his defeat as a “communist coup.”

Leaders of federal law enforcement and cybersecurity agencies on Election Day said they found no evidence of any malicious activity that could have led to the White House race ending differently.

Nonetheless, Mr. Lindell, 59, has continued to serve as one of the most vocal proponents of election fraud conspiracy theories, resulting in him and his company facing recent boycotts and bannings.

Several major stores recently stopped carrying My Pillow, Twitter has banned the company and its CEO from its social media platform, and Mr. Lindell has found himself on the verge of being sued — proponents of some of the claims he has been pushing have since been hit with hefty defamation lawsuits. 

Amid that firestorm, Mr. Lindell said he put together a film crew after praying for and receiving what he described as a miracle from God and made the movie during a recent five-day span.

Interviewed on the “What’s On Your Mind” radio show, Mr. Lindell said he has been “hiding out” under “heavy security,” adding that he made the movie under the protection of former Navy SEALs.

“We’ve put this together, and it’s, I want to say, 100 times better than I could have imagined,” Mr. Lindell said about his movie.

Promoting the film in another interview on The Revival Channel, a YouTube account, Mr. Lindell described his film as “the most important documentary you ever [will] watch in history.”

“Coming Friday, I have put together this documentary, it’s three hours long, that shows every, 100%, the theft by China and these other countries, this cyberattack on our country here, that took, that flipped votes,” Mr. Lindell said.

“I think God waited until now to make this movie. Because you know what? It’s 11:59, guys. It’s 11:59. And you know what? That miracle that’s coming, and it’s coming, and I’m telling you, Friday is the start,” he added.

Mr. Lindell said his film will be available online and on cable television and radio.
