After the critical success of his 2009 film Moon, all eyes have been on Duncan Jones to see if he’s a one trick pony or the real deal. His latest film is entitled Source Code and it’s a sci-fi flick that stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, and Vera Farmiga. Over at Apple, they’ve released the first trailer for the film and we’ve got it for your viewing pleasure right here. Check it out…
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 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.
This is like Groundhog Day for sci-fi fans. Doesn’t it seem that towards the end of this trailer they try to make the film look more action heavy than it probably is?
Source Code hits theaters on April 15, 2011.
