Duncan Jones’ new sci-fi, MUTE will hit Netflix next month
When Moon was released in 2009, the reviews were mainly solid. Personally, I loved the movie. Even if I didn’t, I could still appreciate the craftsmanship at hand. It was a minimal movie sporting great on-screen and behind the camera efforts from both Jones and leading man Sam Rockwell. Moon was a sci-fi gem that achieved maximum effect, set in one location with primarily one cast member. I can get why some people wouldn’t like it but to me, it was a sci-fi masterpiece.

When the news dropped that Jones would be making a (sort of) follow-up to Moon, it was time to get excited. We knew that Rockwell would not be returning. Mute was described as a “spiritual sequel to Moon“…whatever that means!.
Alexander Skarsgård (Legend Of Tarzan) is the leading man in Mute. The film also stars Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Justin Theroux (The Leftovers) and Seyneb Saleh (Mute seems to be Seyneb Saleh’s only acting credit to date).
Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly. A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.on Netflix.
I am not sure of the actual release date for the movie but as soon as I find out, you guys will be the first to know.
