source code sxswNew Jake Gyllenhaal flick Source Code opened at SXSW in Austin!  Source Code is a sci-fi action flick, and it’s been called ‘Groundhog Day with a Bomb’, kicked off the SXSW Film Festival.

Jake Gyllenhaal plays Colter Stevens, a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown train passenger, in the middle of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.  In an assignment unlike any he’s ever known, he learns he’s part of a government experiment called the “Source Code,” a program that enables him to cross over into another man’s identity in the last eight minutes of his life.  With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack.

Source Code is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones also starring Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright.  This film, which opens April 1, looks like it is filled with mind-boggling twists.  Buzz about Source Code from SXSW is good, watch the trailer below or check out more on the film on the website
