Mute — Trailer


added: Tue, Jan 30th '18

Recent Emmy-and-Golden Globe-winner Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies) doesn't have much to say as he plays a voiceless bartender in the first official trailer for "Mute," the Netflix sci-fi thriller from Duncan Jones, the visionary director of "Moon," "Source Code," and "Warcraft."

Set in Berlin 2052, the film, which also stars Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux, is a Blade Runner-meets-Casablanca cyberpunk noir about a mute bartender (Skarsgard) who goes searching for his German girlfriend (Seyneb Saleh) when she suddenly skips town without explanation. During his search, he encounters two rogue army surgeons (Rudd and Theroux), while at the same time, unearthing clues of his girlfriend's dark and mysterious past.

Co-written by Duncan Jones and Michael Robert Johnson (Sherlock Holmes) and based on an original story by Jones, who's been trying to make this passion project happen for several years before Netflix came along, "Mute" co-stars Robert Kazinsky, Gilbert Owuor, Noel Clarke, Florence Kasumba, and Robert Sheehan.

"Mute" will stream on Netflix on February 23rd.

Berlin, the future, but close enough to feel familiar: In this loud, often brutal city, Leo (Alexander Skarsgard) -- 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.
