Netflix has unveiled its first trailer for Mute, the newest film from Warcraft director Duncan Jones, who confirmed in advance this month that it might start streaming on February 23rd.
Set in the year 2052 in Berlin, Mute follows Leo (Alexander Skarsgård), a mute bartender who’s in search of his lacking girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). After he protects his female friend from being confused via consumers, she tells him that at the same time as she loves him, “you don’t recognize me.” Whilst she vanishes, he sets off to find her, running right into a doctor named Cactus Jack (Paul Rudd) and any other guy named Duck Teddington (Justin Theroux).
The movie stocks a universe with Jones’ debut film Moon. The Place Moon used to be impressed through classic technological know-how fiction movies like Outland or Silent Operating, Jones has defined Mute as taking a page from Blade Runner’s playbook — one thing we see within the neon-lit streets of Jone’s futuristic Berlin.
Jones stated lately on Twitter that he wrote Mute sooner than Moon and that it might were his first film. Impressed by way of Sam Rockwell’s audition, he ended up writing Moon for the actor, and Mute was pushed to the back burner after he directed Source Code and Warcraft and was at one element going to transform a graphic novel. That never panned out, and at last, Netflix picked up the film for its growing authentic content library.
Mute will begin streaming on February twenty third.
