Muse Announce ‘Simulation Theory’ Movie, Unveil Trailer

Muse have announced a companion film to their 2018 LP Simulation Theory. Part concert film and part narrative movie, it was directed by previous collaborator Lance Drake and follows a group of scientists who “investigate the source of a paranormal anomaly appearing around the world,” according to a press release. The concert portion of the film was shot at London’s O2 Arena in September of last year. Check out the trailer below.

“The goal for Simulation Theory was to capture the scale of the electrifying live show and to expand upon its connection to the DNA of the world we built for the past three years in music videos for Muse,” Lance Drake explained in a statement. “In a strange turn, the film’s alternate reality eerily started to mirror our own.”

The film comes to IMAX theaters on August 17 and will be available on digital platforms starting August 21.
