Writer-director Duncan Jones‘ new movie, Mute, has been a long time coming. “I’ve finally got this boulder up the hill,” he told us with a laugh and a sense of relief. The filmmaker behind MoonSource Code, and Warcraft originally envisioned his bleak, surprisingly old-school sci-fi mystery as his directorial debut, but the project faced its share of challenges over the years.

When you see the movie, it’s easy to understand why. Mute certainly isn’t a middle-of-the-road film or a story that plays it safe. The movie is a real nasty piece of work at times, but it’s also not without a sense of perverse fun and beauty. After sixteen years of Jones trying to get Mute made, the end result is a packed-to-the-brim science fiction noir that feels like it’s been waiting to be unleashed for a long time.

We recently spoke with Jones about the project’s history, his affinity for Blade Runner, twisting Paul Rudd’s nice guy image, and more.

Barry Trailer - Bill Hader

Bill Hader is returning to Saturday Night Live to host the late night sketch series that kickstarted his career next month, and that’s mostly because he has a new HBO show to promote.

Barry features Bill Hader in a new dark comedy series with shades of Dexter. The show sees the comedian playing a hitman whose most recent job brings him into an acting class to track his target. But as we see in the new Barry trailer, this assassin for hire finds himself bitten by the acting bug, feeling alive and passionate when he gets on stage and pretends to be someone else. But will he be able to balance his love for acting and a job that has him killing people all the time? Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

annihilation the shimmer

Early in Alex Garland’s adaptation of Annihilation, the five women sent to explore the environmental disaster zone known as the Shimmer wake to discover that they’ve lost time. It’s not that they’ve overslept or miscalculated their route through the growth. They’ve simply forgotten. They don’t remember setting up camp, nor how they got to where they are, but their diminished rations suggest that they’ve been traveling for a few days already. Maybe saying that they’ve lost time is incorrect — rather, the Shimmer has taken time from them.

It’s a small moment, but it’s terrifically unsettling, and easily one of the best moments in the film. Annihilation’s most wonderful parts are all similarly elegant and strange, embracing mystery without feeling the need to overexplain it. The movie plays like a dream, at times verging upon a nightmare as layers of the unknown peel back to reveal something both completely alien and horrifyingly familiar underneath. But there’s still something missing. The problem is not that there’s no explanation for it all. It’s that it’s not explored deeply enough. Is it greedy of me to have wished for more?

mute reviews

In 2009, Moon put Duncan Jones on the map as one of the most intriguing and promising new directors working today. His debut gave Jones the opportunity to direct the modestly received, star-studded Source Code and the poorly received, big-budget Warcraft. But most importantly, it paved the way for a passion project 16 years in the making. And thanks to Netflix, Jones finally was able to bring that passion project to life. But was it worth the wait?

Probably not, according to the early reviews of Mute, Jones’ glossy cyberpunk science-fiction film starring Alexander Skarsgard as a mute bartender waging war against future city gangsters.

See what critics have to say about Mute.
