Things have been fairly quiet around Duncan Jones’ Mute (sorry, I had to) for some time now. The Moon and Source Code director, also known for last summer’s Warcraft, started production on his latest film late last September, a project he intended to make his first feature before the Sam Rockwell-led space drama. Now that film is finally happening and Netflix has a first look at the lead cast and gorgeous futuristic set design.

Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgard Declare ‘War on Everyone’ In Raucous New Trailer

by Charles Bramesco December 21, 2016 @ 9:24 AM
A bruise-black crime comedy about a pair of tough-guy partners working in a dark-grey moral area to unravel a larger crime syndicate, executed with a '70s flair. It sure looks like 2017 will find its The Nice Guys in John Michael McDonagh's upcoming feature War on Everyone, the trailer for which debuted today in advance of its February 3 debut. The new Gosling/Crowe power couple is none other than Michael Peña (poised to rebound from the career cyanide of Collateral Beauty) and Alexander Skarsgård (also in need of a rebound, from this summer's dud Tarzan), as a pair of police officers who make typical cop-on-the-edge types look like they're not even on the edge, like they're a safe distance from the cliff.

The jump from more indie-fare like the subtle Moon and Source Code to this summer’s blockbusting Warcraft was, let’s say, unexpected, but director Duncan Jones’ projects usually have this uncanny way of working themselves out. Last week, Jones announced that he was starting to shoot Mute, the sequel to Moon, this week, the movie he originally wanted to make before he decided to have Moon be his first feature. Now, it looks like Mute is heading to Netflix.

‘The Legend of Tarzan’ Review: Even the ‘Original’ Summer Movies Feel Like Sequels This Year

The Legend of Tarzan, based on the pulp hero by Edgar Rice Burroughs, focuses on a version of the jungle hero who’s long since given up swinging on vines and yelling at the top of his lungs. He doesn’t even answer to the name Tarzan anymore; he’s John Clayton, Lord of Greystroke and a famous celebrity in England, where he lives with Jane, who’s now his wife. He’s sort of like the version of Hercules from the underrated Dwayne Johnson movie from 2014, the “real” man behind a puffed-up myth. He’s also sort of like Gene Wilder’s character from Young Frankenstein without the sense of humor; denying his history and lying to himself about his true identity until the day his past comes back to haunt him. If “Young Frankenstein, but not funny” sounds like a troubling description for a movie, it should.

And in other Duncan Jones news… The first teaser for the director’s ambitious Warcraft finally arrived today, but that’s not all.

Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard have signed on to star in the smaller sci-fi film, reminiscent of Jones’ debut feature, Moon.

According to a new report from THR, sources close to the production reveal that there’s still a lot of work to do on the unfinished film.
