The Mule

"Do something with this shitty life of yours before it's too late!" Damn this looks good. We've been waiting ages to see a trailer for this Australian film called The Mule, about a drug mule who gets into the wrong shit. Angus Sampson (who also co-wrote and co-directs this film) plays Ray Jenkins, who ingests a bag of drugs while in Thailand and attempts to enter Australia. He's caught, but it's not necessarily by the police, with everyone coming after him as soon as he arrives. Hugo Weaving and Leigh Whannell co-star, along with John Noble. This looks great, like a dark comedy with some crazy fun times, I'm looking forward to it. The quotes are the worst part about this trailer, but all the footage and Weaving's mustache looks awesome.

Here's the first full trailer for Angus Sampson & Tony Mahony's The Mule, on YouTube (via The Playlist):

Here's the full description from SXSW: 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 co-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. The Mule premiered at SXSW 2014 but still doesn't have a US release date yet. See the poster.
