It looks like today has been a Paul Rudd today. Earlier this morning saw Ant-Man and the Wasp with a trailer, and now the first trailer for Netflix’s Mute has hit. The film hails from Duncan Jones, who is known for such films as Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft.
For those who loved Moon, starring Sam Rockwell, it looks like you’ll be getting something slightly more along those lines with Mute. It’s low-key in its sci-fi approach, potentially for of intriguing ideas.

Below is the 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.”
Admittedly, while I love Duncan Jones, I wasn’t too thrilled with this trailer. Perhaps it’s the choppy editing or the bad sound mixing, but I found it personally hard to follow and connect with. Based on visuals alone (not to mention the director), it looks like it could be another great piece of sci-fi, but I’m not sure this trailer does it any real favors other than making it look a bit like a convoluted mess.
