Deadmau5 is scoring the feature film Polar, and the full trailer has dropped for the sensational thriller which is due for release on Netflix on 25th January 2019.
The film stars Madds Mikkelsen, known to many as Le Chiffre from the James Bond film 'Casino Royale'. Mikkelsen stars as an assassin in retirement who is targeted by his former employer.
The three-minute trailer show a colourful array of fight scenes as the Black Kaiser, as Mikkelsen’s character is called, takes on the network of killers single-handedly.
The story is based on the graphic novel ‘Polar:Came From the Cold’ by Victor Santos, and is directed by Swedish drummer Jonas Akerlun.
DJ and producer Joel Zimmerman revealed the news back in September on Twitter:

Deadmau5 took a social media hiatus later in 2018 after making several homophobic and ableist slurs, after which he cited ‘mental health challenges’.
Musically, Deadmau5 is one of the hottest DJs in the world, coming in at 59 on the 2018 DJMag Top 100 DJs poll.
