Opening on April 1 is Summit Entertainment’s sci-fi thriller Source Code. Directed by Duncan Jones (who previously made the incredible Moon), the film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright. If you aren’t familiar with the plot, Gyllenhaal stars as a soldier who wakes up in the body of a stranger on a Chicago commuter train and “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.” If you’re nervous that Jones was a one hit wonder, don’t be. Source Code is an intelligent thriller that’s definitely worth your time. You can read Scott’s review here.
A few days ago I sat down with Gyllenhaal and he told me how the project came together, which of his previous films people always want to talk about, what’s up with David O. Russell’s Nailed, and he tells me what are his karaoke songs. I’ve been asking the karaoke question a lot recently and his answer was one of the best. Hit the jump to watch:
