The Mule Trailer: A Drug Smuggler Holds it in

Check out the new trailer for The Mule, an upcoming Australian comedy-thriller that we’ve been looking forward to for some time. Inspired by true events, The Mule tells the story of a drug smuggler carrying narcotics in his stomach. When he’s detained by the cops, he’s got no choice but to hold…it…in. It’s a cracking premise written by stars Angus Sampson and Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious). Hugo Weaving looks to put in a great performance here too, as a detective that wants nothing more than for this guy to go number 2. The Mule trailer below provides confidence in a suspenseful, funny, and disgusting picture. Good shit (sorry).

Starring Angus Sampson, Hugo Weaving, Leigh Whannell, Ewen Leslie, Geoff Morrell, Georgina Haig, Noni Hazlehurst and John Noble.

Official synopsis for The Mule:

It’s 1983. A naive man with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach is detained by Australian Federal Police. Alone and afraid, ‘the Mule’ makes a desperate choice; to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence…literally. And by doing so becomes a ‘human time-bomb’; dragging cops, criminals and concerned family into his impossible escapade. Inspired by true events, THE MULE is directed by Angus Sampson and Tony Mahony, with a darkly comic screenplay by Sampson, Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious), and Jaime Browne. The film stars Hugo Weaving alongside Sampson and Whannell with an ensemble cast including Ewen Leslie, Geoff Morrell, Georgina Haig, Noni Hazlehurst and John Noble.
