The first image from Source Code, the new film from Moon director Duncan Jones, has appeared online. It’s not a staggeringly exciting photo, but it does show Jake Gyllenhaal in character and dual-wielding a gun and cell phone. What’s really going on there? No idea. We know the actor plays a soldier who is brought into a government program designed to investigate terrorism; Gyllenhaal’s consciousness is placed into the body of a civilian who experienced a terrorist bombing, and he must live through repetitions of the event to find out who was responsible.
The image is scanned from the latest issue of Empire (scan via Film Source Code) which also reveals that a March 11, 2011 release date has been set for the film, at least in the UK. Jones recently said that his edit was complete and the visual effects were underway and a composer being chosen. He estimated a release early next year, so this March 11 date fits right in with what we expected.
Slightly fuller image is after the break.
