Duncan Jones' soulful sci-fi journey has been a passion project for the director for many years so imagine how excited we are that Netflix exists to allow his vision to become a reality.

Duncan Jones has been a consistently interesting filmmaker between his breakout, Moon then Source Code and the high fantasy epic Warcraft. Here her presents a world of strange currencies in which echoes of love and humanity are still worth listening to.

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.

Mute is co-written by Jones and Michael Robert Johnson. The film is produced by Stuart Fenegan. Charles J.D. Schissel and Trevor Beattie are executive producers.

Mute hits Netflix, February 23, 2018.

Recommended Release: Moon + Source Code box set
