Published Jan 30, 2018Writer and director (and son of David Bowie) Duncan Jones has been working on his upcoming film Mute for nearly 12 years. He's dropped some hints along the way, revealing that it's connected to his cult classic Moon and sharing a still last year. Now, finally, we get a further taste with a new trailer.
Rather than try to explain it ourselves, we'll let Netflix do the talking with its official synopsis:
Berlin, the future, but close enough to feel familiar: In this loud, often brutal city, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) — unable to speak from a childhood accident — searches for his missing girlfriend, the love of his life, his salvation, through dark streets, frenzied plazas, and the full spectrum of the cities shadow-dwellers. As he seeks answers, Leo finds himself mixed up with Cactus Bill (Paul Rudd) and Duck (Justin Theroux), a pair of irreverent US army surgeons on a mission all their own. This soulful sci-fi journey from filmmaker Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code, Warcraft) imagines a world of strange currencies in which echoes of love and humanity are still worth listening to.
Watch the Mute trailer below. The film arrives on February 23.
