Netflix debuted the new trailer for its upcoming film, “Mute.”
The official synopsis reads:
Berlin, the future, but close enough to feel familiar: In this loud, often brutal city, Leo – 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 and Duck , a pair of irreverent US army surgeons on a mission all their own.
“Mute” is set in 2052 and stars Alexander Skarsgård in the leading role as Leo. Skarsgård’s breakthrough role came with the HBO series “True Blood,” based on the series of novels by Charlaine Harris. Now, fresh off his award-winning performance in “Big Little Lies,” he has several films in various stages of production.
This movie also stars Paul Rudd as Cactus Bill, and Justin Theroux as Duck. Rudd has spent a lot of his career playing either the lovable everyman or the goofy friend, in movies like “Clueless” and “Anchorman.” He took on a new role when he joined the MCU as Ant-Man.
Justin Theroux has appeared in a number of films since the mid 1990s, including “American Psycho,” “Zoolander,” and “The Girl on the Train.” Last year, he concluded the series run of “The Leftovers.”
“Mute” is directed by Duncan Jones, who is known for his soulful sci fi tales, including “Source Code” and “Moon.” Michael Robert Johnson wrote the script. He also wrote the screenplays for “Sherlock Holmes” and “Pompeii.”
“Mute” is an original film for Netflix, and will be available for streaming on February 23.
