Netflix has provided a first look at Mute photos from the sci-fi noir film directed by Duncan Jones (Warcraft, Source Code, Moon).

Check out the Mute photos in the gallery below!
Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly. A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.
The Netflix original film is directed by Duncan Jones and written by Jones and Michael Robert Johnson (Sherlock Holmes). Stuart Fenegan serves as producer and Charles J.D. Schissel and Trevor Beattie serve as executive producers.
Mute will launch in all territories where Netflix is available in 2017.
