Preview: Source Code

If you're not familiar with 2009's surprise indie hit Moon, then now is the time to educate yourself. Newcomer Duncan Jones directs Sam Rockwell through an interesting and dramatic sci fi unlike no other. Jones (formerly Zowie Bowie and son of David) creates a simple, yet high concept flick, which barely scrapped the surface of the mainstream, yet was a massive hit with critics.

Jones's follow up remains in the realms of science fiction with soon to be released Source Code starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan. The trailer is  reminiscent of 2008's Vantage Point which has elements of repeating the same scenario (in this case Gyllenhaal can keep reliving the last 8 minutes of someone's life) but hopefully a much better attempt, more along the quality of Groundhog Day one hopes.

Supported by a strong cast including Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright, Source Code promises to be a much  faster, more thrilling film than Jones's debut, whilst retaining his quality and attention to character development that made Moon so memorable.
