The first image from Source Code has gone online. The flick is Duncan Jones’ highly-anticipated follow up to his excellent 2009 sci-fi film Moon. The story centers on a soldier (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) who signs up for an experimental government program that places his consciousness into the body of a civilian who experiences a train bombing. Gyllenhaal’s character must live and re-live the bombing until he finds out who set it up. In the first image from the film, it appears that Gyllenhaal does not like to be bothered while texting. But honestly, who does?
Empire is also reporting in their upcoming issue that the release date for the film is March 11, 2011. Of course, release dates are always subject to change and we don’t known if that March 11th date is only for the UK (where Empire is based) or also for the U.S. If that is the date, the movie will face off at the box office against Jane Eyre, the family film Mars Needs Moms, the gothic-thriller Red Riding Hood, and the action flick Battle: Los Angeles. Hit the jump to check out the image.
