First Trailer for Director Duncan Jones' Source Code
11.21.10 by Ryan
Fans of 2009's Moon will be pleased to know that director Duncan Jones is sticking with the sci-fi genre for his follow-up, Source Code. The movie follows Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier who is a part of an experimental program that allows him to enter the body of another person to discover the culprit of a train bombing. If that sounds confusing, the movie's synopsis is much clearer.
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake 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 eight minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter relives 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.
Summit Entertainment's recently released trailer makes the fantastic premise look like a viable thriller.
Source Code opens on April 15, 2011, and co-stars Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright.
