MUTE Trailer: Check Out Duncan Jones’s Netflix Sci-Fi Thriller

Duncan Jones made a splash a decade ago with Moon, the Sam Rockwell sci-fi drama. Since then, he’s been a little hit or miss with films like Source Code and Warcraft to his ledger. Finally, however, we have a Mute trailer, Jones’s latest sci-fi adventure loaded with a solid cast and an impressive visual palette.

Check out the trailer:

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.

This has an obvious Blade Runner vibe to it, but it looks to have a different story on its mind. It’s nice seeing Paul Rudd play a sci-fi weirdo as well. We’ll see when Mute hits Netflix February 23.
