Muse Are Releasing a Movie Connected to 'Simulation Theory' Published Aug 11, 2020 It's been two years since Muse released their Simulation Theory LP, but the UK dystopia rockers aren't done with the project just yet. Instead, they've announced a movie based on the release.The Simulation Theory movie was directed by their frequent collaborator Lance Drake, and it's both a concert film and a narrative story about a group of scientists who investigate a "paranormal anomaly.""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," Drake said in a statement. "In a strange turn, the film's alternate reality eerily started to mirror our own."will open in IMAX theatres on August 17 before hitting digital retailers on August 21. Watch its trailer below.

The British rockers have announced a Simulation Theory film, which is set to premiere in IMAX theaters worldwide on August 17. It'll then be available on digital platforms August 21. Part concert film and part narrative movie, Simulation Theory features live footage from Muse's September 2019 show in London. That provides the soundtrack to the sci-fi story, which is based on the music videos created for several Simulation Theory songs, and involves an unstoppable contagion and quarantine zones. Timely!
It includes the singles "Dig Down," "Thought Contagion," "Pressure" and "Something Human." By Josh Johnson Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. Muse will conclude their support of the Simulation Theory album in a rather epic way, shifting things to the big (and we mean big) screen. There's a new Simulation Theory film directed by Lance Drake that will be heading to IMAX theaters around the world on Aug. 21, and will also be available for rent or download. During the rollout of the Simulation Theory album, Muse were careful to craft a narrative that continued from video to video. Some of those elements were then included within their massive Simulation Theory tour performances, and all of it ties into what fans will be getting from the film, which includes a mix of live performance and a narrative element that follows a team of scientists as they investigate the source of a paranormal anomaly appearing around the world. Drake, who also directed all the band's videos during the Simulation Theory cycle, says, "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." You can check out a trailer for the film below. Muse, Simulation Theory Film Trailer Muse - Simulation Theory: The IMAX Experience will be available exclusively to IMAX theaters beginning Aug. 17, then will expand to include rentals or downloads starting Aug. 21.
