The sci-fi action thriller Source Code is receiving a lot of attention for many different reasons. For starters, the acclaimed Duncan Jones directs it. Another reason for its popularity is the fact that it includes a unique social gaming element.
Source Code is about an American soldier who finds himself in the body of a stranger as part of a government experiment. He is tasked with the mission of finding the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.
The stars of the film are Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, and Jeffrey Wright. In this interview with WebProNews, Jones called these actors “amazing.” He also pointed out how the science-fiction elements add to the intensity of the film.
“From someone, like myself, who’s the science-fiction fan, it was really fun to sort of try and take those elements… put them in the background a little bit, but sort of introduce them in a way that people who aren’t necessarily purely sci-fi fans could also start to get into it and start to understand some of the things that make me passionate,” he said.
Source Code opens in full release on April 1.
