Jake Gyllenhaal, “Source Code” set to open SXSW in March

By Sean O’Connell Duncan Jones’ “Source Code,” his follow-up to the critically acclaimed “Moon,” will open this year’s SXSW, it was announced today.

The science-fiction thriller centers around a time traveler (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is able to flash to a specific location where a train is about to be blown up. The soldier wants to stop the catastrophe – and rescue the beautiful woman he meets (Michelle Monaghan) – but time and nature’s forces seem to keep working against him.

Jones burst on the scene with “Moon,” another smart sci-fi story about an astronaut (Sam Rockwell) trying to survive a stint on the moon who encounters strange problems. It’s encouraging to hear Jones is returning to sci-fi, and I’m hoping he can inject the same level of intelligence and emotion into “Source Code,” which sounds similar to “The Matrix” and Denzel Washington’s “Deja Vu.”

The film will world premiere in Austin on March 11, before opening wide on April 15.
