Source Code Trailer

Now this you've got to take a look at! Summit Entertainment debuted on Apple the official trailer for Moon director Duncan Jones' second feature film, Source Code, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan. The film is based on a highly buzzed screenplay written by Ben Ripley that involves a twisty, time-travel filled, sci-fi-ish plot where Gyllenhaal wakes up as a guy traveling in a train, doesn't know who he is, talks to people who know who he is, then a few minutes later finds out there's a bomb that blows the train up. And that's just the half of it. The concept is neatly explained in this kick-ass first trailer!

A sci-fi story centered on a soldier who wakes up in the body of a person who witnesses a train explosion.

Source Code is directed by one of our very favorite up-and-coming British filmmakers, Duncan Jones, son of David Bowie whose feature debut was the brilliant sci-fi film Moon. The screenplay was written by TV writer Ben Ripley, making his feature debut, and was featured on the Black List a few years ago. Vendome Pictures and Mark Gordon produced. Summit Entertainment is bringing Source Code to theaters everywhere starting April 1st just before the summer kicks off. This is highly suggested viewing, it's a fascinating sci-fi thriller!

  • Micah
    Very deja- vu. And I don't think that movie did well. So...who know.
  • Sabes
    Looks really good.
  • NeoSLyfer
    WOW! That's like Groundhog's Day X 1,000,000!!! Actually this looks promising. Love Michelle Monaghan when applied in proper doses and love Jeffrey Wright...looks good! Great VFX too!
  • particle
    "Inside the source code" ... Yeah, right. This sounds so stupid. And it looks like crap. BTW, Moon sucked. Totally boring. So this will be another movie to forget.
    • jjboldt
      Shut up!
  • KING
    damn. nice.. all i can say. really good trailer. and michelle monaghan. shit, even vera farmiga i'll take after seeing her ass in up in the air. lol
  • Abe
    What if Michelle's character is the one who bombed the train?
  • cyn
    oh wow. great trailer! yay- new movie to look forward to.
  • Traveler
    Abe, my thoughts exactly. I loved Moon and Jones is my new favorite to keep an eye on. Can't wait!
  • ekko90
    I'm so in on this!!
  • MikeL
    Woah, this looks good!
  • 4k4k
    Moon was awesome, so expect this to be too.
  • McWilly
    IM IN!
  • Dave
    @2 Micah, yes it is very deja- vu/butterfly effect, especially about the ability to change the pass. I enjoyed Deja-Vu and butterfly effect and will be looking forward to seeing this.
  • talli
    the movie looks cool....but when i read the script i thought there was no good characters...and the trailer confirmed that to me...all the acting and the characters look very shallow
  • Aw Abes, that's some M Night twist type shizzles! I hope it's not and thy get in the Hot Tub Time Machine and partaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. Loks alright enough. Moon ruled, so I'd watch it based on that.
  • Lars
    Very cool! I'm there...
  • germs
    I'll go see this movie out of respect for Moon and Mr. Jones.
  • Omar
    So in the trailer one of the future agents tells Gyllenhals character that he can't change the past yet he is trying to find out who the bomber is and stop it or just see who the bomber is? Already showing flaws in the script.
  • editor
    @Omar: He cant change the past, but he's trying to stop the NEXT attention.
  • talli
    and then he changes the past anyway...which makes no sense lol
  • Bash
    At last, a trailer for a decent movie. And Jeffrey Wright.
  • CLAW
    Duncan Jones did an amazing job with Moon and this looks quite good also. I like Gyllenhaal but it would have been awesome if Jones reunited with the brilliance that is Sam Rockwell.
  • Big Zero
    Moon was so damn good but this is an old concept. Star trek episodes, 12 monkeys, deja vu, butterfly effect, it's been done. But this guy making it is obviously talented, still looks watchable even though it's been done. Waiting for his third....
  • Dan W
    seems like a different version of inception 😛 still looks good tho 😀
  • Joe Ho
    @8 If that's the ending I'm totally going to find you and give you a gold medal. I promise I don't mean that in a creepy way, but that would be one of the best calls I've ever seen and I could totally see it happening.
  • ocp
    wow Im in
  • lego
    what abe said. shes the one who bombs the train, counting on him to save her life through all his shananigans to continue her job. boom, saved you guys 10$. your welcome. lawl, jk. this looks decent, will watch regardless.....regardless of what possible twists we all can think of.
  • I am…
    I love it!! thanks #30 Whoa! loll!
  • DoomCanoe
    ill see it and i like all the predictions good call all but! we all know it was Samuel L Jackson and Bruce Willis is the only one to survive.
  • Typhoon
    Damn, Vera looks great!
  • Lincoln
    You can't go wrong with Jake Gyllenhaal!
  • Eli
    didn't look too bad. interesting but old concept.
  • Chris
    Ben Ripley, writer of Species 3 & 4? Well, the trailer looked okay but you won't mind if I don't get my hopes up too much.
  • casshern
    Stypid title
  • Bender
    Another Inception. Stupid plotline noone's (except fanboys of course) gonna believe for a second. Pity.. I loved Moon, but this looks too hollywoodish already.
  • Robbie
    I think it looks awesome. I love Moon.
  • Simply, one of the best article l have come across on this precious subject. I quite agree with your suppositions and will eagerly look forward to your forthcoming updates.
  • Geoff
    Intrigued for sure
  • Louis
    If Tony Scott directed Twelve monkeys...
  • Louis
    Oh wait.. Tony Scott did direct Twelve Monkeys, it's called "Deja Vu"
  • As I say on my blog this doesn't look as great as Moon, but it still looks good. I'm a bit worried we'll see the repeating 8 minutes too much but given the talent and script I still expect it to be a lot better then Deja Vu.
  • Cruzer
    "I'm asking you to have the decency to let me try." Finally something that's actually human, another film to look forward to next year!
  • Nathaniel
    The mirror scene reminded me of Quantum Leap :)
  • beavis
    this idea seems kind of stale................and of course, at a given point in the movie - he HAS to save the girl - didn't see that coming > (major sarcasm) unless it hits netflix instant-watch.......i'll pass
  • Did anybody else think this looked like a modern quantum leap when it first started i got flashbacks from the pilot and when he looks in the mirror.... i sighed massively... but then it picked up and flipped it somewhat. looks good
  • leinergroove
    Go Jones!!!! Looks so darn gooood!!
  • Im in! Looks awesome
  • Cody w
    Yeah looks awesome Im sold
  • Harry
    This is exactly like a Supernatural episode where Sam wakes up and lives his Tuesday every single day, so he can find the source of his brother Deans death. It was a funny episode and one of the best. Source Code is a rip off of that but with more money and more action.
  • I have no name
    # 6 your a fucking idiot.
  • I have no name
    # 52 your a fucking idiot as well because supernatural was not the first to come up with the concept nor was it the second or third. This has been done many times but this actually looks good unlike other movies or shows.
  • DoomCanoe
    #52 oh yeah i loved Groundhogs day!
  • looks good
    Sorry to rain on your parade, KING (#7), but that was a body double for Vera Farmiga in Up in the Air.
  • jasonmd2020
    Like the idea. (Being in the Chicago area I also love that they're using the Metra system.) But Source Code does NOT work as a title. Especially if you know anything about programming. (Which any 2nd grader can tell you these days.)
  • jasonmd2020
    Oh yeah. I'm also surprised no-one made a Timecop reference yet...
  • eru88
    I read this script a few months ago and I had to read it in one seating how awesome it was. From the trailer I see they change something in the script Michelle character doesn't know the guy on the train but they made as if there are friends or lovers. I really loved it in the script how they didn't know each other so in 8 minutes he had to basically gain her trust. Either way really looking to see this, if it's half as good as the script it would be great.
  • stnprkl
    Wow. This actually looks very interesting. No trolling required.
  • Bogart
    I wondering... if this didn't have the critical darling 'Duncan Jones' name attached, would you all be as impressed? This looks like Deja Vu meets Unstoppable - a Tony Scott tribute film with a rather underwhelming lead. I was hoping for much more from Zowie after the great potential he showed in aspects of Moon. Full judgment will obviously wait, but as it stands this has all but slid off my radar.
  • Ragnarok
    Moon was amazing, and this doesn't look nearly as inane as Deja Vu. Has more of a 12 Monkeys feel to it.
  • wangchung
    Reminds me of the old TV show "Seven Days" that aired from 1998-2001. Awesome show, pilot in an experimental program can be launched seven days into the past to complete his mission(s), whereupon he catches up with the present time.
  • Ddlkfja
    WTH....this is definitely a combo of Deja-Vu and The butterfly effect!
  • Answersales
    "seven days" was one of my favorite tv shows,but most peple I ask have never heard of it.I hope the source code movie can do as good of job with this concept as the tv show did over a decade ago.
