Muse have shared an official trailer for their “Simulation Theory” film. That movie will be released in IMAX theaters around the world on August 17, before receiving a digital release on August 21.
The following information was also provided with the preview:
“From February to October of 2019 MUSE took their Simulation Theory Tour to over 28 countries and played in front of more than 1 MILLION people. Now fans will be able to experience the spectacle and more, beginning August 17th when “MUSE – Simulation Theory: The IMAX Experience” will be available exclusively in select IMAX Theaters around the world and August 21st when the Simulation Theory movie will be available for rent or download on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play (distribution will be via Eagle Rock Entertainment).

Conceived and filmed at London’s O2 Arena in September 2019 the film directed by Lance Drake, (who also directed all the promo videos for Simulation Theory album) and Produced by Muse, Pulse Films, Lance Drake, Jesse-Lee Stout and Matthew Bellamy, follows a team of scientists as they investigate the source of a paranormal anomaly appearing around the world. Blurring the lines between narrative and concert film, virtual and reality, Muse’s most theatrical tour to date launches the viewer through a supernatural spectacle, questioning the world around us.
Says Drake, “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. In a strange turn, the film’s alternate reality eerily started to mirror our own.”
