Did any of you spot what featured in the official MUTE movie trailer?

Duncan recently did an interview with EMPIRE magazine where he informs us that MUTE features several homages to his father. No spoilers here if you've not read it.

Mute co-written and directed by Duncan Jones premieres on Friday 23rd February on Netflix.

If anyone wants to personally own one of these prints, or the read the background details, take a LOOK HERE and get in touch.

Don't hang around, these are all remaining original left-over stock from thirty-four years ago, and once their gone, their gone.

7th February 2018

Published today on the UPROXX website is an interview by MIKE RYAN with film director DUNCAN JONES talking about his latest movie MUTE and where to go next after a couple of 'crappy' years.

It's been an emotional, trying few years for Duncan Jones.

Professionally, Duncan spent three and a half years making Warcraft, an expensive and ambitious fantasy film that just didn't catch on with American audiences - an experience that was, as Jones puts it, "soul crushing".

Personally, Duncan lost his father, DAVID BOWIE, in 2016. In 2017, Jones lost MARION SKENE, the woman Duncan gives credit for raising him. And while all this was happening, Jones himself became a father for the first time. These are the kinds of events that will lead to a lot of soul searching and re-evaluations. And for Duncan Jones, one of these revelations was that it was finally time to make the movie he's been trying to get made for the last 16 years. It was time to finally make Mute a reality.

You can read the whole interview on the uproxx.com website.
