First poster and trailer for Duncan Jones' Mute

Irene MckinneyJan 31, 2018

It's billed as a "spiritual sequel" to his debut and will, at some point, feature a cameo by Sam Rockwell as a version of Sam Bell, the terribly unfortunate (spoiler alert) clone we meet in Moon. Still, our first look at the film has us mighty intrigued.

Yep, that looks cool.

The movie, from Duncan Jones, stars Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux. Did you enjoy Moon?

Netflix is preparing to release a science fiction original series called Altered Carbon in the next few days, but that's only the start for the streaming service.

The cast here is terrific, and there's a delightfully off-kilter tone that promises Mute will be unlike most other sci-fi movies around.

Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. It was written by Jones with Michael Robert Johnson and Damon Peoples. Stuart Fenegan serves as producer and Charles J.D. Schissel and Trevor Beattie serve as executive producers. Leo finds himself in trouble when, after protecting his girlfriend (Seyneb Saleh) from thugs, she disappears and his unhappy adversaries come looking for him.

This leads to encounters with a moustachioed Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux as U.S. Army surgeons, who have seemingly questionable agendas. It's a visual delight, too, as the newly-unveiled teaser trailer shows Skarsgård's silent protagonist walk the streets of a near-future Berlin. Said Skarsgård of the role: "It's about a guy who was in an accident as a kid. He's left the [Amish] community but he still kinda follows the rules".
