Parallel realities? Personality shifting? "Forking" the river of time? These are just some of the far-out concepts at play in director Duncan Jones' (Moon) new sci-fi thriller, Source Code, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier whose consciousness is sent back in time and into the body of a dead man over and over again until he can find a way to stop the terrorist attack that killed the man and hundreds of others. Does the plot sound far-fetched to you? Well, according to producer Jordan Wynn, writer Ben Ripley and astrophysicist Dr. Michio Kaku in a new featurette about the movie, there is some actual science mixed in with the pseudoscience behind the Source Code plot.
Source Code also stars Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright.
