From Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft director Duncan Jones comes Netflix’s newest sci-fi thriller and the first trailer for it is absolutely stunning.
The film takes place in the future dystopian city of Berlin and stars Alexander Skarsgård as Leo, a man who has been unable to speak ever since a childhood accident left him mute. Leo is searching for his missing girlfriend, the love of his life and, while doing so, gets intertwined with two irreverent US army surgeons, Cactus Bill (played by Paul Rudd) and Duck (played by Justin Theroux), on a mission all their own.
Check out the trailer and official synopsis from Netflix below:
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.
