Muse Announce Simulation Theory Movie, Share Trailer: Watch

Muse have announced a companion film to their 2018 album Simulation Theory. Directed by their frequent collaborator Lance Drake, it’s part concert film and part narrative movie about a team of scientists who “investigate the source of a paranormal anomaly appearing around the world,” according to a press release. It’s out August 21 on digital platforms after showing at IMAX theaters on August 17. Watch a trailer below.

The concert portion of the new movie was filmed at London’s O2 Arena in September 2019. “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 said in a statement. “In a strange turn, the film’s alternate reality eerily started to mirror our own.”
