Duncan Jones says "Mute" is his "love letter to Blade Runner."




I'm surprised that they would actually mention on the poster that this is from the director of "Warcraft." Duncan Jones became one of the very exciting directors to emerge from Hollywood with "Moon," and "Source Code," but "Warcraft" was a step back. This, looks like a step forward. Visually it looks and feels like "Blade Runner," 

EDIT: It is not surprising for me to learn that Jones has describe "Mute" as a love letter to "Blade Runner." Also that "Mute" and “Moon” actually take place in the same universe. "Moon was supposed to be his directorial debut.
Netflix has invested a lot of money to this film, their last attempts at this were "Okja," and "Bright," both somewhat succesful, especially the latter which reached a record-breaking audience for the stream service. 
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos:
“[Director] Duncan Jones is such a dynamic directing force, and the team he has assembled in-front-of and behind-the-camera will continue to reinvigorate the science fiction genre.” 
The official plot synopsis:
"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."

“Mute” is released on Netflix on February 23rd.
