Mute follows Leo (Alexander Skarsgård), a mute man who goes in search for his missing girlfriend in the loud, unforgiving streets of future Berlin. His search for answers finds him mixed up with two irreverent US army surgeons (Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux) who are on a mission of their own.
While Warcraft wasn’t up to his usual standards, both Moon and Source Code remains great sci-fi pics. The trailer below is promising; fingers crossed we have something special here. With Mute and the about-to-arrive series Altered Carbon, those after more Blade Runner-looking sci-fi are in for a few more hours tuned into Netflix.
Mute, also starring Seyneb Saleh, Nikki Lamborn, Ulf Hermann, Florence Kasumba, Gilbert Owuor, Daniel Fathers and Noel Clarke, will be hitting Netflix on February 23.
Official synopsis for Mute:
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.
