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 »

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 »

We thought global warming was heating up the planet, but really it’s Hollywood. They’re making it summer all year long. The first weekend of May is generally considered the beginning of the summer movie season but, as those three months got more and more crowded, that date slowly crept into late April. Now, 2011 changes that like never before.
So many potential blockbusters staked their claim on prime May, June and July 2011 release dates, in some cases, years in advance, Hollywood was forced to change its thinking more than usual. For the next two months, each and every weekend has at least one or two films that, in the past, would have easily been considered summer blockbusters and it all begins this Friday, March 4. So, is it crazy to say that the summer of 2011 begins in March? We don’t think so. Look at the list of films opening between this week and Thor on May 6 and tell us that, in almost any other year, these movies would not be considered summer blockbusters. Read More »

The South by Southwest Film Festival has announced their features lineup for the 2011’s Festival, which will take place March 11th to the 19th in Austin Texas. Read the full press release after the jump.
We’ve seen a fan-submitted poster for Source Code, the second feature from Moon director Duncan Jones, but here’s the debut of the official one-sheet. The fan-made one was like a blend of Tyler Stout and Saul Bass, whereas the official sheet looks like the sort of art that could have adorned a sci-fi novel in years past. See the full image after the break. Read More »

In early November, Summit Entertainment invited us to the editing room of Source Code, the second feature from Moon director Duncan Jones. During the visit, Duncan showed us the first 7 minutes of the film, and answered a bunch of questions from myself, Collider and FirstShowing. After the jump you can read the entire interview, and watch a very short video blog I recorded with Frosty from Collider.
Keep in mind, a lot has happened since this visit. It’s a whole new year for one, a trailer was released which shows a lot of plot elements Jones would only hint at during our interview (and much of which we had not seen at the time), and composer Clint Mansell is no longer scoring the project (you will notice a couple questions and answers about Clint’s score in the interview).
