The first poster has been unveiled for The Mule, one of the oddest sounding movies to premiere at this year’s SXSW Festival.  Co-written and Co-starring Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious, Cooties), the film tells the true story of a man who becomes a ticking time bomb after deciding to refrain from using the bathroom and revealing the large amount of drugs contained in his stomach.

The movie sounds completely gross and ridiculous and I absolutely can’t wait to check it out next week.  The Mule also stars Hugo Weaving, Angus Sampson, and Ewen Leslie.  Hit the break to check out the poster and synopsis.

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. Sales are handled by Paradigm and eOne Films International.
