#23: SOURCE CODE
Director: Duncan Jones
Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan, Jeffrey Wright
Release Date: April 1
Why we’re excited: One of 2009’s most slept-on flicks was the independent sci-fi drama Moon, directed by Duncan Jones, aka David Bowie’s son. Forget about any nepotism accusations, though, because the guy’s got serious chops. For his follow-up, Jones keeps things ambitious with Source Code, a “repeated event” thriller that looks like the mashup of Groundhog Day and Deja Vu we never realized we wanted. The excitement surrounding Source Code falls squarely on Jones’s shoulders, because, let’s be honest: Jake Gyllenhaal’s presence doesn’t exactly scream “action hero.”
