Check out this infographic for Moon director Duncan Jones‘ upcoming sci-fi action thriller Source Code, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan and Vera Farmiga. The film tells the story of a soldier who “wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.” In Groundhog Day-like repetition, he hopes to find the bomber and try to change history (if that is even possible?). The infographic illustrates his mission. Check it out after the jump.

Duncan Jones, the man who made Moon (as his Twitter name states) is back with his sophomore film, Source Code. The mind-bending sci-fi film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Colter Stevens, a military captain who somehow finds himself inside the body of another man for the final eight minutes of his life. In that time, he has to find out who blew up a train full of passengers before the bomber strikes again. Also starring Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright, the film just had its world premiere at South by Southwest and will open everywhere on April 1. If you’re exceedingly excited for the movie, Yahoo has posted the first five minutes, which really do suck you in. Check it out after the break. Read More »
A couple years ago, it looked like Duncan Jones might follow up his debut feature, Moon, with a sci-fi film called Mute. Set in futuristic Berlin, the script follows a mute bartender looking for his abducted girlfriend. Comparisons were made to Blade Runner, and some script reviews praised the visual detail implied by the script. But financing turned out to be difficult to come by, and the director signed on to make Source Code instead. Now, with that film almost in theaters, people are asking about the next film for Duncan Jones.
At one point he suggested that Mute might become a graphic novel before anything else — shades of Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain — and now he says that is definitely the plan. Read More »
South by Southwest begins next week in Austin, Texas and besides incredible music and awesome films, the festival also has great art. Not only do they host a Flatstock, which is basically screenprint Comic Con, it’s in Mondo‘s hometown, so they get in on the festivities. They’ve commissioned a whole bunch of posters exclusively for SXSW screenings and today we’re got the first batch (with more coming next week). There’s one for the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost sci-fi comedy Paul, by Tom Whalen, and a pair based on the mind-bending work of Duncan Jones, Source Code and Moon, by fan favorite Olly Moss. The latter two also qualify as the next entry in Mondo’s Director’s Series, which previously featured Guillermo del Toro. Check out all of the posters, read a quote from Jones and more about after the break. Read More »
Hip hop has appropriated a lot of stuff from movies over the years: score samples, sound effects, dialogue. It’s all fodder. (RZA and The Wu Tang Clan are the most obvious examples, thanks to RZA’s heavy reliance on martial arts films.)
Now Richard Rich and Max Tannone have created Selene, an EP that is heavily derived from Duncan Jones‘ film Moon and the wonderful score to the film by Clint Mansell. Check it out after the break. Read More »
