New ‘Mute’ Poster Is A Throwback to a Simpler Time

A new poster has been unveiled by director Duncan Jones‘ return to science fiction, ‘Mute‘. The poster is drawn in a style that was popular in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and features Alexander Skarsgård at the forefront, along with Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux. Netflix picked up the film after Jones spent over a decade trying to get the film made. ‘Warcraft‘ was certainly a critical and financial failure, but ‘Source Code‘ and ‘Moon‘ were certainly valiant sci-fi efforts, so ‘Mute’ certainly has a pedigree that seems promising, and this poster ultimately shows a confidence in the film itself.

Here’s the official poster for the film, along with the synopsis below, and you can watch the trailer here. ‘Mute‘ arrives Netflix on February 23, 2018.

As you know, theatrical screenings of @mute set to be incredibly limited, as the film is a Netflix release, but…

Duncan Jones’ Mute gets a stunning film noir-inspired poster

Last week we got a first official poster and trailer for Mute, the latest film from director Duncan Jones (Moon, Warcraft), and now Jones has taken to Twitter to unveil a brand new, film noir-inspired poster he commissioned from artist Paolo Rivera. It’s rather splendid indeed; check it out here…

“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.

Netflix and ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’ Made Exhibition History With Just 4 Words: ‘Only on Netflix Tonight’

  • Indiewire
You’ve probably never heard of “Breakout,” Columbia Pictures’ 1975 prison-break movie starring Charles Bronson. That’s to be expected — it’s a ‘B’ movie at best — but its successful release was one of the most important in film distribution history. Why? Because “Breakout” was released on 1,300 screens simultaneously, with national TV advertising. At that time, TV ads for movies were all but unheard of, and releases tended to be either initially exclusive in downtown theaters, or shown in different territories at different times.

Despite predictions that it was a waste of money, “Breakout” was an immediate hit. That convinced Universal to do the same thing for “Jaws” less than a month later, and that film’s massive success remains the most significant change in exhibition history. By creating the notion of a shared experience for 2 million people, it created the template for how most studio features are released today.

Duncan Jones: Ambitious ‘Moon’ Follow-Up ‘Mute’ Would Not Exist Without Netflix

Duncan Jones: Ambitious ‘Moon’ Follow-Up ‘Mute’ Would Not Exist Without Netflix
Duncan Jones’ quest to get his ambitious sci-fi drama “Mute” — a loose follow-up to his beloved “Moon,” and one set in the same so-called “Moon-iverse” — has been well-documented over the course of the last 16 years. Even when he was hitting the trail to talk about his 2016 studio effort “Warcraft” (itself a long-gestating labor of love) the filmmaker was fixed on finally bringing the film to fruition, telling IndieWire in June of that year, “I’ve always wanted to make ‘Mute,’ and I’ve been on ‘Mute’ for about 14 years. I’m determined, no matter what happens, I’m going to get that movie made, at some point.”

Later this month, that dream will finally become a reality when “Mute” arrives on Netflix, the kind of home for the project that, even a couple of years ago, would be hard to imagine. In a revealing new interview with Uproxx, Jones gets

Duncan Jones’ Mute On Netflix February 23

Going to the local cinema to see the latest movie has almost become a thing of the past. Some of the population would prefer staying at home with their big screen TV, even if it means waiting a few months to watch a popular movie, instead of dealing with people talking through a film or on their cell phone.

More filmmakers are turning to other forms of distribution to release their movies, with their stories no longer made for just the big screen. Netflix has become one of those outlets and it’s being accomplished with successful results.

Director Dee Rees’ (Pariah) Oscar nominated Mudbound, Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s Bright, and this week’s big surprise – J.J. Abrams Cloverfield Paradox, are a few examples of films finding an audience through the popular streaming format.

Now comes Mute, the soulful sci-fi journey from filmmaker Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code,

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in February 2018

  • Indiewire
Netflix isn’t exactly known for adventurous film programming, but their February lineup is even more geared toward comfort cinema than usual — not that we’re complaining. The world is a cold place these days, so it’s worth celebrating life’s small pleasures; say what you will about the state of our union, but we now live in a world where you can watch “Ocean’s Twelve” on your watch. Steven Soderbergh’s criminally underrated masterpiece is only one of the reliable standbys coming to the streaming giant this month: the heist sequel is joined by a Martin Scorsese classic, Quentin Tarantino’s two best movies, a current Oscar nominee for Best Foreign-Language Film, and more.

Here are the seven best films coming to Netflix this month.

‘Mute’ Finally Gets A Trailer!

Netflix has finally released the trailer for Duncan Jones‘ upcoming sic-fi epic, ‘Mute‘. Although the film is set to be released in a little over a month, the film has long been in the works for the director, roughly 12 years or so. The film stars Alexander Skarsgård as Leo, a mute who searches for his missing girlfriend in a futuristic Berlin. The long in the making film was originally intended to be made before the director’s under-seen debut, ‘Moon‘, but was continually pushed back in favor of making more accessible genre faire such as ‘Source Code‘ and the abysmal ‘Warcraft‘. Finally, Netflix decided to green light the project, much to Jones’ excitement.

Netflix, these crazy new kids on the block, had this totally crazy philosophy on film making straight out of the 70s. Don’t make 4 quad “please everyone” homogenous blobs! Make films fimmakers are passionate about & let the audience find them!

First Trailer for Duncan Jones’ ‘Blade Runner’-Inspired Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Mute’

Perhaps pushed back slightly to ride the wave of Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi sequel, Duncan Jones’ long-gestating Blade Runner-inspired sci-fi feature Mute will finally be arriving next month on Netflix and they’ve now released the first trailer.

After entering the world of large-scale tentpole fantasy with Warcraft, the story finds him working on a smaller scope. Starring Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux, it follows a mute bartender who has to track down his girlfriend in a near-future Berlin.

“It’s not about saving the world,” Jones tells Empire. “It’s a small thriller, in the same way that Casablanca was. It’s the very small story of two people, how they exist and how their story unfolds within this very different, alien-feeling world.”

Check out the trailer and poster below.
