Set in a not-so-distant future, the Mute trailer is packed with enthralling sci-fi flourishes as Skarsgård’s character Leo navigates Berlin and its grimy underworld, searching for a cocktail waitress named Naadirah, played by Seyneb Saleh.
Naadirah disappeared during their budding romance, hinting at a dark secret in her past. Along the way, Leo’s journey dovetails with that of two curious U.S. army surgeons, Cactus Bill and Duck, played by a mustachioed Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux, respectively.
Jones’ last film was 2016’s Warcraft: The Beginning. His previous movies include Source Code and Moon.
