The first trailer for Moon director Duncan Jones’s second feature film, Source Code, has just been released. Check it out after the break.
Looks like this could be a very tense, twisty thriller. And if anything the underseen, wonderfully atmospheric Moon is to go by, it’ll also be brilliant.
Source Code follows the exploits of a soldier as his mind is planted into the body of a victim of a train bombing, in the past. He is forced to relive the incident over and over, until he can find out who the culprit behind the explosion was. And he needs to find out quickly, in order to prevent another attack that is believed to occur within a few hours. Like a cross between Groundhog Day and Assassin’s Creed. But if you watched the trailer, you (hopefully) knew all that already.
As with Moon, Clint Mansell will be composing the score for this. This is great news; I’m a huge fan of his previous scores, particularly those written for Darren Aronofsky’s films The Fountain and The Wrestler.
Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright, Source Code is set for release on 11th March 2011 in the UK, and 15th April in the USA. I’m hugely looking forward to it, just as I’m excited to see anything Duncan Jones has to offer us in the future. Thoughts?
