“Source Code” trailer from Oscar night arrives online – SXSW


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Why are all of the best movie trailers aired during the Super Bowl? Shouldn’t the Academy Awards have just as many high-profile commercials for anticipated blockbusters? After all, you’re playing to an audience of movie lovers. Don’t you want them to see the latest “Captain America” or “Transformers” spot?

Instead, the one film I can remember teasing itself throughout last weekend’s Academy Awards was Duncan Jones’ “Source Code” … which is great for Jones and Summit Entertainment, but puzzling for every other studio. But I digress.

“Source Code” stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a time-traveling soldier (of sorts) who keeps leaping back to the last few minutes before a Chicago-bound train explodes. His mission is to locate the bomber and prevent a disaster, but Michelle Monaghan’s hotness keeps distracting him. Totally understandable.

The trailer that ran during the Oscars found its way online. We’ve posted it below.

We’re also anxious to cover “Source Code” as it prepares to open South By Southwest later this month. The film, which also stars Vera Farmiga, opens everywhere on April 1.
