Jake Gyllenhaal in second “Source Code” trailer ahead of SXSW
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Duncan Jones made such a splash with his debut feature, “Moon,” that his follow-up immediately climbed atop a pedestal of anticipation. What could this economic and imaginative filmmaker deliver next?
By the looks of a new teaser trailer, his second picture – “Source Code” – is going to expand Jones’ storytelling gift.
The film will open next month’s South By Southwest film festival before going wide on April 1. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a time traveler who must jump to a modern-day train and prevent a bomber from blowing the vehicle to bits. It’s not that easy, however. Gyllenhaal’s character can only jump back to the last eight minutes of the train’s existence. Oh, and he’s falling in love with one of the train’s passengers. (Understandable, seeing as how she’s played by the gorgeous Michelle Monaghan.)
Oddly enough, a long “Source Code” trailer was released three months ago, setting up the plot an introducing the characters. We’ve posted that below. But if you want to see the new teaser, with a bit more footage, jump over here.
We’ll have more on “Source Code” from this year’s SXSW festival, and even more coverage as we get closer to that April 1 opening.
