IGN is the home of good new content today with the first TV spot for Source Code, Duncan Jones’ eagerly anticipated follow-up to debut feature Moon appearing on the site. This comes after the excellent Battle: Los Angeles poster debuted there.
The film sees Jake Gyllenhaal play a soldier, who through the use of pioneering technology gets to take over another persons body for the last 8 minutes of their life. That person is a victim of a terrorist attack and by reliving the bombing over and over Gyllenhaal must find out who’s behind it and how to stop the next one.
I’ve described before as Die Hard meets 12 Monkeys meets Groundhog Day, and if it lives u to the hype it could be one of the movies of the year. Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wrightstar alongside Gyllenhaal, to give the project even more credence.
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. Filled with mind-boggling twists and heart-pounding suspense, Source Code is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) also starring Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye, Due Date), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed), and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, Syriana).
