Muse is releasing a companion film to 2018's Simulation Theory, and from the looks of its trailer the plot is frighteningly similar to the current state of the world.

According to the trailer's YouTube description, Simulation Theory "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."

The movie was directed by Muse's frequent collaborator Lance Drake, who also helmed all the album's music videos. “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,” he explained in a statement. “In a strange turn, the film’s alternate reality eerily started to mirror our own.”

Simulation Theory is showing at select IMAX theaters on August 17 and will be available on digital platforms August 21. Watch the trailer below.

Earlier this week, Muse mourned the death of one of their "biggest fans," Bianca Bonzi. See their touching tribute here.
