Duncan Jones' Source Code Will Open SXSW
One of my favorite films from last year was Duncan Jones' Moon. A tight, creepy science fiction film with an incredible performance by Sam Rockwell that went tragically unappreciated during award season, the movie was only Jones' first feature. Everyone is waiting with bated breath for his sophomore effort, Source Code, and now we know it's been revealed when people will get their first look at it.
Via press release, the SXSW Film Festival has announced that Source Code will be their opening night film when the nine-day festival opens up on March 11 in Austin, Texas. Already set for a wide release on April 1 next year, the movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier named Colter Stevens who has become the subject in an experiment. Following a terrorist attack on a train, Stevens wakes up in the body of one of the passengers and has one goal: to find out who's responsible. The film co-stars Michelle Monaghan, Verya Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright.
As always, our venerable leader, Josh Tyler, will be covering the festival for us and will get all of the gritty details coming out of the state that nobody is supposed to mess with.
