Alexander SkarsgårdPaul Rudd and Justin Theroux are channeling their inner Neo and hitting Netflix with a dark, new sci-fi film next month. 

Set in 2052, Mute features Skarsgård as Leo, a mute bartender who loses his ability to speak in the wake of a childhood accident. Leo journeys through the squalid Berlin underground to find his missing girlfriend, Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh), and learns that connecting with two American surgeons (Rudd and Theroux) are the only way he’ll ever find her. 

Director Duncan Jones (Warcraft) took to Twitter today with a gif of Leo looking a little worse for wear in honor of the film’s February 23 release date. 

Honestly, we’re open to anything that will wash away the memory of Skarsgård’s Big Little Lies character.
