Source Code opening five minutes online
The opening five minutes of Source Code is now online, and in high definition too, so you can see some of the film from Duncan Jones, the man who brought us the excellent Moon (Filmstalker review).
The five minutes don't give anything much away, after all it's the opening five minutes, and we get just enough to hook us in and make us as confused as our main character.
I like the opening, the way that the main character is as confused as we are, and the scenes following this are probably just as confusing for him as well as the audience. It's only a taster and doesn't really deliver that much, but it's a taster.
Before we delve right in, here's a blurb for Source Code:
When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he's part 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 8 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. Filled with mind-boggling twists and heart-pounding suspense, Source Code is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) also starring Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye, Due Date), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed), and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace).
What do you think? For me it's still the entire concept that has me captured up in Moon.
