He is Now You

And...all of a sudden I find Jake Gyllenhaal both compelling and hot. I've always felt pretty wishy-washy about our man Jake and I wasn't sure if he could handle this type of role or movie. But by gum, this new Source Code business sucked me right in. It's got a teensy bit of an Inception vibe going for it with protagonist Colter Stevens (Gyllenhaal) being "inserted" into another man's last eight minutes of consciousness over and over again (instead of dreams). Duncan Jones' (Moon) second Science Fiction outing has the military trying to figure out who bombed a commuter train using Stevens as a mental detective who must relive the crash over and over. It's a little bit of Groundhog Day, a little bit of Run Lola Run, and a good bit of sci-fi mindfuckery.

If this trailer is any indicator, Jones has already made a name for himself in Hollywood; I immediately wanted to watch it again. Source Code also stars Michelle Monaghan (Due Date, Somewhere), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, Cadillac Records) and is set to hit theaters April 15, 2011. Frak taxes, go to the movies.

The only curious thing is that it's written by Ben Ripley, whose previous writing credits include Species III and Species: Awakening.

Wait. There was a fourth Species film? People never learn, I swear. Anyway, hopefully Ripley's one of those talented writers who's been forced to take shit jobs to pay the bills, and this is his break. Hopefully.
