We’ve been keeping an eye on SOURCE CODE, the new movie from director Duncan Jones (MOON). The film is premiering at South by Southwest, and we plan to be first in line for it (or at least somewhere in that crazy line). Today we’re treated to a new trailer for the film, which like everything before it looks rather intriguing. This feels like a sci-fi version of GROUNDHOG DAY mixed with THE MATRIX. It features Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan and Jeffrey Wright.
Michelle Monaghan and Jake Gyllenhaal in "Source Code" (2011)
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he’s ever known, he learns he’s part of a government experiment called the “Source Code”, a program that enables him to cross over into another man’s identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack.
Opening in theaters nationwide on April 1, 2011, the film was written by Ben Ripley. A Mark Gordon Company production, and presented by Vendóme Pictures, the film was produced by Mark Gordon, Philippe Rousselet and Jordan Wynn, with Hawk Koch, Jeb Brody, and Fabrice Gianfermi executive producing".
