Muse Share Trailer For “Simulation Theory” Film

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). For more information please go to http://muse.mu/film

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.”

Fans can pre order tickets for the IMAX showings http://imax.com/muse

The film has also undergone IMAX’s cutting-edge proprietary Digital Media Re-Mastering (DMR) and sound mixing process to take advantage of the stunning visuals and precision audio of the IMAX® Experience. In IMAX, MUSE fans will be immersed in a cinematic world of unmatched scope and clarity, surrounded by next-generation precision audio that delivers pitch-perfect tuning and pin-point accuracy in custom-designed IMAX theatres.

Theater safety measures will comply with governmental and exhibitor guidelines. Examples of typical measures taken may include but are not limited to use of masks by employees, social distancing and capacity constraints, as well as increased sanitation efforts. Please contact your local exhibitor for more information on their specific precautions.

Available for pre order on the same day will be 2 different limited edition deluxe box sets which will be available via muse.mu and physical retail.

Muse’s “Drones World Tour” Concert Film To Hit Cinemas For One Night Only

Muse have announced that their “Drones World Tour” concert film will be screened in theaters across the country for one night only on July 12.

“The symbiosis between humanity and technology has always been something I am interested by. Drones just seem to be a very interesting modern metaphor for what that represents… You want to leave people with the idea that they ask the question themselves about the role of technology in our lives and whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing.”
