New posters have been released for Duncan Jones’ Source Code, Jake Kasdan’s Bad Teacher, Justin Lin’s Fast Five, Raja Gosnell’s The Smurfs and Rob Marshall’s Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Some are international posters and some are domestic. Hit the jump to check them out:
Artist Olly Moss has created two gorgeous posters for Duncan Jones’ Moon and the director’s upcoming film Source Code. The two posters are part of Mondo’s new “Director’s Series”. The Source Code poster is so much better than the official one, which makes the movie look like it’s about a man who’s being attacked by iPads.
Both posters measure 18″x24″ and cost $35 each. The Moon poster is limited to an edition of 250 while the Source Code poster is limited to an edition of 200. Hit the jump to check out both of these beauties along with a statement on Duncan Jones about having his work added to Mondo’s Director Series. Be sure you’re following @MondoNews for the sale date announcement. Source Code will make its world premiere on March 11th at the SXSW Film Festival. It opens nationwide on April 1st.
A new trailer has gone online for Source Code. Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon), the film follows a soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal) who must re-live the last eight minutes of a doomed train passenger’s life in order to discover the bomber who destroyed the train. I’ve heard good things about the flick from people who have seen it and even if I hadn’t, I would still be first in line to see Jones’ follow-up to Moon.
Hit the jump to check out the short (only about a minute) trailer. Source Code also stars Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright. The film opens April 1st.
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.” Watch the trailer here.
Since I’m pretty sure I’m under embargo…hypothetically speaking…if I were to have seen an early screening, I might be able to tell you that I thought Source Code was really good. For now that’s all you’ll get out of me. Anyway, for a taste of the film, watch a clip after the jump:

An international poster for Jonathan Liebesman’s Battle: Los Angeles (titled World Invasion abroad) has landed online alongside a couple of new posters from Joe Wright’s (Atonement) Hanna and Duncan Jones’ (Moon) Source Code. In case you’re new to the film, Battle: Los Angeles stars Aaron Eckhart as a Marine who must lead his team against an ongoing alien invasion. Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, and Michael Pena also star. Hanna, starring Cate Blanchett and Saoirse Ronan, features Ronan as a 16-year-old assassin who is being tracked across Europe by an intelligence agent. Eric Bana also stars as Ronan’s father/ex-CIA employee/assassin instructor. Finally, Source Code stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monahgan, and Vera Farmiga and tells the story of a soldier (Gyllenhaal) who wakes up in the body of a stranger and finds he is part of an elaborate plan designed to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.
To check out each of the three posters, hit the jump. Battle: Los Angeles opens March 11th while the other two films premiere only a week apart with Source Code debuting April 1st and Hanna hitting theaters on April 8th.
Opening on April 1 is Summit Entertainment’s awesome looking 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 film, Gyllenhaal stars as a soldier who wakes up in the body of a stranger on a Chicago commuter train: “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.”
Anyway, I recently got to visit Duncan Jones in the edit bay with Peter from /film and Alex from First Showing. While there Jones showed us the first 10 minutes of the film and then we conducted an in depth interview which covered how he got involved in the project, what drew him to this material as his follow up to Moon, how tough is it to promote a movie when the mystery of what’s happening is critical to the story, how he shot on both 35mm and digital and why, the editing process, filming the action, and so much more. Hit the jump to read or listen to the interview, and I’ve also recorded a video blog with Peter about our reaction to the footage and the edit bay visit:
Last month, we reported that Moon director Duncan Jones was possibly moving forward with his sci-fi future noir Mute as his follow-up to his new film Source Code (which opens April 1st). Unfortunately, that appears to no longer be the case. Speaking to We Got This Covered, Jones says Mute “is in a bit of limbo.” He says that Mute is more of a “futurist” film than a sci-fi film since it doesn’t revolve around a sci-fi hook. For those unfamiliar with the project, the film is reportedly inspired by Blade Runner and centers on a mute bartender in 2046 Berlin who must go against the city’s gangsters in order to find his girlfriend. Jones says the film is a tough sell because it’s quite dark, but the budget is in between Moon and Source Code.
Hit the jump for more of what Jones had to say about Mute and another sci-fi project that might have his attention.
Summit has released a new international trailer for Source Code, a sci-fi thriller directed by Duncan Jones (Moon).

Source Code opens on April 1, 2011. Hit the jump to check out the UK trailer.
I love Twitter. There are countless interesting people to follow for any movie geek and one of my absolute favorites is Duncan Jones (follow him here), director of the instant sci-fi classic Moon, one of my favorite movies from the last couple years and the upcoming (and great looking) Source Code. Jones is one of the most down to earth, genuine people on Twitter and he regularly responds to tweets directed at him, so today I took a chance and asked him when we will hear about his next picture and if would be the previously announced Escape From The Deep or his intriguing original script Mute, a future noir in the style of Blade Runner. Jones was kind enough to reply:
“not on the sub movie anymore, but trying hard to get one of two things made next. Mute is one of those 2”.
Continue reading for a refresher on Mute. Make sure to follow myself and Mr. Jones, he’s truly a fun guy to follow.
We have received a press release announcing that the sci-fi thriller Source Code will open the 2011 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival. Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon), the film follows a soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal) who wakes up in the body of a stranger and keeps reliving the last eight minutes of the man’s life in order to discover who was responsible for bombing a train in an attempt to prevent the bomber’s next attack. Like just about anyone who saw Moon, I can’t wait to see what Jones has pulled off this time, and the trailer makes the film look smart and intense.
Hit the jump for the full press release. The 2011 SXSW Film Conference and Festival runs from March 11 – 19th in Austin, Texas. Source Code opens nationwide April 1, 2011.

Back in September we reported that The Fountain composer, Clint Mansell, was to score Duncan Jones’ new film, Source Code, a logical choice given the success of their collaboration on Moon. However, there has been a change of plans, as Mansell has an issue with scheduling. Duncan Jones reported on his twitter that:
“unfortunately we weren’t able to work out a schedule so Clint could do the score in the end. He has been a very busy bee.”
In Mansell’s place, Jones has hired Chris Bacon, “a very talented young guy”, who has been working scoring films for some time but is largely unknown. A 70 piece orchestra is recording the soundtrack over the course of three days. Epic. Hit the jump for more.
Duncan Jones broke onto the scene last year with his low-budget feature debut Moon, starring Sam Rockwell and the voice of Kevin Spacey. The mind-bending science fiction film was a critical success and helped usher in a year of fabulous science fiction films. His next movie, Source Code, stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, and Vera Farmiga and tells the story of a soldier who has eight minutes in the “source code,” a body he can inhabit, to figure out who bombed a train. When he falls for a girl, the stakes are raised. Moon was fantastic, and Source Code is looking to be a great film as well.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Source Code is set to open on April 15, 2011.
We have some great posters and synopses from the American Film Market (AFM) for the upcoming films The Three Musketeers, Source Code, and Man on a Ledge. Musketeers is the reboot of the Alexandre Dumas classic from director Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil) and stars Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom, and Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds). Source Code is Moon director Duncan Jones’ highly anticipated second feature film and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan (Due Date), and Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air). Finally, Man on a Ledge is a heist film with a death-defying twist that stars Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, and Ed Harris. Hit the jump to check out the posters, the first Source Code image, and highly detailed/pretty spoilery synopses for these films.
Christopher Nolan has begun to meet with directors for the upcoming Superman reboot, The Man of Steel. The short list of possible directors includes Tony Scott (Man on Fire), Matt Reeves (Let Me In), Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles), Duncan Jones (Moon), and Zack Snyder (Watchmen). Not much is known about the film other than Nolan will be serving as a “godfather” to the project and that David Goyer has written the script for the film, which addresses the character of Superman in a modern context. Hit the jump for my thoughts on these choices.
Composer Clint Mansell is reuniting with Duncan Jones for the sci-fi thriller Source Code. The two previous worked together on Jones’ wonderful 2009 feature Moon. The news of Mansell’s hiring on Source Code came via Jones’ Twitter: “Have a bloody fantastic bit of Source Code news. Super star Clint Mansell WILL be scoring the film. You have no idea how relieved I am.” I share that relief. Mansell my favorite composer working today. I listen to at least part of his score for The Fountain almost every day. His work on Moon was also gorgeous and I’m excited to hear what he creates for Source Code.
For those who don’t know, Source Code centers on a soldier (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) in an experimental program who must keep re-living a train bombing until he discovers the culprit. The film also stars Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan, and Jeffrey Wright. Source Code is set to open on April 15, 2011.
