The movie Source Code was all about finding humanity and purpose in the face of dehumanizing technology – and so it will be for the DVDs and Blu-rays of the movie, who will have to live on despite Source Code getting released two weeks earlier on Video On Demand. Here’s the President of Summit Home Entertainment Steve Nickerson on the announcement:

“As the way a consumer’s consumption of feature films evolves, we are always looking for new ways that meet these demands. While we are optimistic about the consumer appetite for this type of home entertainment release pattern, we are only conducting a test in this case and not making an overall policy shift at this time. Once the results are in we will analyze the data and see what the consumer has to say.”

So, if you want to keep getting your grubby mitts on DVDs, better wait until the DVDs come out on July 26 to see Source Code, or they might stop making DVDs altogether. Which would be a shame, since they make such terrifically shiny Frisbees (just kidding DVD, I love you). The VOD release is on July 8, in case you’re an enemy of DVD.

Tsunamis and Aronofsky be damned; The Wolverine marches on.

After losing their attached director to scheduling conflicts, and their shooting locations to a natural disaster, the producers of The Wolverine seems to be slowly but surely moving forward, holding meetings with the frontrunner to replace Mr. Black Swan. The search was spearheaded by David Slade, who was attached before Aronofsky came along, demonstrating that studios can be friends after being lovers.

Duncan Jones, helmer of Moon and the more recent Source Code, has recently confirmed that he is in talks with Fox to discuss taking the reins of the ill-fated project. However, Jones seems more inclined to pursue directing his own material, rather than the writing of others, despite the fact that the script for The Wolverine is supposed to be top notch.

It’s widely rumored that the studio is more than willing to take its time with this project after backlash from the previous Wolverine entry. So just because the ball is rolling here, don’t expect the previous timetable to be kept. ‘Cause after the director problem gets solved, there’s still all that mess devastation in Asia to deal with.

Source Code was the opening night premiere movie of SXSW and I got to interview three of the key players in Austin. The Friday everyone can relive the eight minutes Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) relives on a doomed train so he can find out who bombed it.

Moon writer/director Duncan Jones directed Source Code, this time from a script by Ben Ripley. The idea of connecting to the eight minute memory of deceased terrorism victims still seems like the kind of highbrow science fiction in which Jones specializes. Jones also happily gave some spoilers, easter eggs for time travel fans to watch for, but wait until you’ve seen the movie if you want them to be a surprise.

Q: Do you see the connection between Moon and Source Code as intelligent sci-fi that doesn’t condescend to the audience?

Duncan Jones: I think Inception really is the obvious, had to say that one. Inception has kind of opened the floodgates a little bit. Mine was a little tiny film. I think District 9 did an amazing job of both visually and in some ways intellectually stimulating the audience but Inception has really proven that there is an audience out there for films that really challenge the audience to work out what the hell is going on at times. I think that’s going to open up some opportunities for some kinds of sci-fi that haven’t been made since maybe the ‘70s. I think it’s a good thing.

Q: Were you a “Quantum Leap” fan?

DJ: Did you pick up on the voice I am a “Quantum Leap” fan. I did notice the similarities when I was reading the script and I don’t know if you were going to say, but the voice of Colter’s father is relevant in bringing up “Quantum Leap.”

Q: I totally missed that. I was asking because of the mirror reflection.

DJ: It is. Scott Bakula is the voice of Colter’s father. In fact, if you get the chance to watch it a second time, you’ll notice he does actually say, “Oh boy.” You can tell [your readers] that and you can even say that you realized that.

Q: Are we supposed to debate the ending or is it definitive?

DJ: It’s definitive to me. I am more than happy to see what the reaction is and see what people’s interpretations are but I feel very comfortable I know what’s going on. I think there is a real head scratcher for the audience at the end there and I think it involves where our main protagonist has ended up and what the implications of that actually are.

Q: The questions about your father, David Bowie, and legacy were covered for Moon. My only question is were you a Labyrinth fan growing up?

DJ: I’ll tell you what. It was difficult to separate myself as my dad’s son watching that film, so watching the film was not as enjoyable as being there while it was being made because I was actually on the set while they were making Labyrinth. That to me was the extraordinary experience and the thing that did stick with me and change me.

Q: Were you there for the Helping Hands?

DJ: Oh, I was there for the Helping Hands. I was also there for the goblin village. I think to me the most exciting thing was the actual all-embracing set. It’s like my favorite thing about Blade Runner, the idea that you could leave the characters, you could pan the camera off the characters and you’d feel like you were still in that world. On the Labyrinth set, I was in a world where they were shooting that way but there was still this huge goblin village over here and stuff over here. You really felt like you were in that world.

Q: Just off Moon, you could probably get a budget of at least $10 million for a reasonable second feature. Is Mute too ambitious for that type of budget?

DJ: I think so. I think Mute would’ve been more comfortable in the same kind of budget as Source Code was, but I have lived with it for such a long time and I have such strong feelings about how to do it right that at this stage, I don’t want to take any shortcuts. If I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it right and that means I have to be patient. I have to wait and I have something else I’m working on which I know I can get made and I feel very excited about. I think by making it a graphic novel, I can probably expand on certain things which I had never intended to expand on as a first feature film

Q: When you say “can get made next,” what are the elements that make you think that?

DJ: My producer and I have been realistic about both tonally and character-wise what is needed in order to find people who are willing to invest both as performers and financially to get the film made, but still do it in such a way that I feel that it’s worth making. It’s a story that I want to tell.

Michelle Monaghan plays Christine, a woman on the train sitting across from Colter when he wakes up in the body of Sean Fentriss. She replays the train scene seven times, a little differently each time Colter tries to fix things. She was almost on her way out of Austin to catch a plane when we spoke.

Q: Was it your job to bring the reality to this outrageous sci-fi concept?

Michelle Monaghan: I think so. I think that’s sort of the heart. I think it was my job and Vera’s job because Vera’s really conflicted. She’s morally conflicted obviously and I think really the heart of the matter is really about living your life to the fullest. I think that’s what Christine is conflicted with in her own life.

Q: Is the film saying that even if none of these changes last, it’s still worth making it better for 8 minutes?

MM: Yeah, I think. Yeah, because I think that’s life. We all do things that may not last but hopefully they inspire other people and they pay it forward. I think absolutely, I totally agree. Good will lingers.

Q: I first spoke to you for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. What has this ride been like for you?

MM: Oh my gosh, it’s so amazing. That was one of the best experience I’ve ever had. It was just a great film. I still love it to this day and I’m good friends with Shane and Robert and Val still. I just had a really good run and I’m really grateful. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of great filmmakers. I’m really proud of the films I’ve been in and I just want to continue to do films that are big and small.

Q: That’s what you’ve done.

MM: Yeah, it’s important to me. Nowadays it’s really tricky to find a good story, a story that’s compelling with really rich, colorful characters that are really reflective of true life. I find that the meat of that is in independent film. So as long as we keep getting festivals like this to appreciate and honor independent films, wow, by god, I’ll still be doing them.

Vera Farmiga is on the other side of the source code. Every time Colter returns to present day, Goodwyn (Farmiga) is debriefing him for intel. Colter’s not the most cooperative soldier either, and Goodwyn can’t really explain exactly what he’s doing going back in time for eight minute increments.

Q: What was your take on the dilemma of motivating Colter when you couldn’t explain what he was involved in?

Vera Farmiga: I think keeping in mind the urgency of the situation and urgency of the task at hand, which is life saving and preventing catastrophe. The frustration, that’s where it comes from, keeping in mind the urgency of what’s going on. It’s called parenting.

Q: Does Source Code deal with faith in a way like you dealt with in Higher Ground?

VF: Well, to me there’s a lonesomeness in this, stuck in space and time and this loneliness where that might echo Higher Ground in a way that when doubt enters the faith equation, you’re in limbo. In that respect, I feel like Colter is a man who’s lost in knowing who exactly he is. He’s in limbo. He’s lost.

Q: Do you agree with the worldview that even if these eight minutes won’t matter, we should make them the best eight minutes we can?

VF: Sure, and I think that was the note the film left me on upon the first reading really was a reminder to cherish everything that is most dear to you in your life and to acknowledge it, be present and not take it for granted and treasure those things.

Q: Who is Goodwyn when she’s off work?

VF: Yeah, we’re clued into the fact that she has a marriage that expired, that didn’t work. You have to suppose that she’s married to her job and thus is probably a very lonesome person. Honestly, I don’t necessarily think that whether you think of her as someone with children, I don’t know if any of that is imperative to the dynamic between her and Colter and the mission and what the story is. We decided that she was someone who just is consumed with work and that when career comes first, oftentimes it’s a pretty lonely existence. More often than not, if you’re career minded you’re coming home to an empty house and I think that’s why connections with her are life changing.

Source Code hits theaters Friday.

SXSW Review: Source Code http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sxsw-review-source-code/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sxsw-review-source-code/#comments Sat, 12 Mar 2011 08:16:07 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201393 An intelligent sci-fi with thoughtful themes.

The post SXSW Review: Source Code appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

Source Code is not a time travel movie. It is a time re-assignment movie. Dr. Rutlidge (Jeffrey Wright) would want me to make that clear. It is a smart sci-fi movie and a thriller that happens to support my worldview.

Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) is part of a military experiment designed by Rutlidge. They send Colter into the body of Sean on a train eight minutes before it explodes. Goodwyn (Vera Farmiga) debriefs Colter each time he returns, so they can find out who bombed the train and stop his next attack on Chicago.

Sounds like a more limited “Quantum Leap.” Sounds like a serious Groundhog Day. It’s more. There are familiar elements of time travel stories for fun. The same woman spills coffee each time. The same guy knocks a bunch of files on the floor. Colter gets better at moving through the scenario to piece together the attack.

The film doesn’t just drop red herrings. It beats up its red herrings. Colter also tries to save Sean’s girlfriend, Christina (Michelle Monaghan), which you’d surely wonder about if you watched the train explosion over and over.

What’s deeper is the science of the source code is both quantum and metaphysical. Rutlidge explains the energy field that remains after death and the memory remaining in a postmortem brain. Together, they let Colter’s unique DNA explore a version of the tragic events. Read any spiritual text for more on the metaphysical connection between all living things.

We see the train scene repeat seven times, and there are two more trips we don’t see. Each time, they think of a new way for Colter to die, triggering his return to the present, so it’s not always in the explosion. The eight minute timeframe is a tight increment of suspense. You watch the clock on both sides, Colter’s and Goodwyn’s.

Some nitpicks don’t undermine the power of the story, but the CGI explosion is really bad. There is also a train jump that looks ridiculous, but I appreciate the effort to slam Jake Gyllenhaal around. The ideas behind the effects are worth it, and some of the shots of flames within the train have an aesthetic beauty, if not realism.

The film ultimately asks a beautiful question. Even if you can’t ultimately change the past, shouldn’t you still do it just for the sake of making that temporary alternate history better? Duncan Jones was not a one hit wonder. He’s the go to guy for intelligent sci-fi with thoughtful themes.

Duncan Jones’ ‘Mute’ To Be A Comic Instead Of A Movie http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/duncan-jones-mute-to-be-a-comic-instead-of-a-movie/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/duncan-jones-mute-to-be-a-comic-instead-of-a-movie/#comments Fri, 11 Mar 2011 17:53:54 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201182 Don't look so sad, Duncan. Comic books are cool too!

The post Duncan Jones’ ‘Mute’ To Be A Comic Instead Of A Movie appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Scifi auteur Duncan Jones has no shortage of interesting ideas. Unfortunately, not all of these ideas are going to make it to the screen. Mute, for example, a movie he’s worked on for years, is getting scrapped and turned into a comic book instead. Here’s a synopsis for the movie-turned-comic: “[A] Blade Runner-esque sci-fi mystery about a mute bartender who goes up against his futuristic city’s gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing girlfriend.”

Too bad we’re not getting to see it on the screen, since it reminds me a little of Dark City. Don’t give up all hope, though. Jones says we might be seeing Mute as a movie eventually:

“Because we’ve had so many problems trying to get this film made, you know? The people who are involved with financing films have just been…shy…shy of making the script. So what we decided to do is we’re going to make a graphic novel of it, prove it…prove it to an audience that this works and maybe in the future get the chance to come back and make it.”

So if you want to see Mute as a movie, buy a few copies of the comic. You can pass them out at work or something. Hey, I didn’t say it was going to be easy. (via The Playlist)

These are two new posters for the Duncan Jones helmed Source Code. It’s Jones’ new sci-fi thriller after the awesome Moon, where we learned that moon jobs are really, really shady.

First we see the UK poster, which is super-crazy. It’s like Jake Gyllenhaal has broken through to Square Town, a dimension where everything is a bunch of squares. Good thing he brought a gun to shoot all those squares, otherwise he wouldn’t stand a chance if they all decided at once to eat him or something.

The second poster was made special for the SXSW premiere of Source Code. It was designed by Olly Moss for Mondo Tees. Moss also made a Moon poster in a similarly retro style. I think this one’s pretty cool. It’s like Gyllenhaal’s become part of a clock, a distinction that puts him in the same club as Felix The Cat. Wow, I’ve just described a pretty fancy club.

Source Code will be in theaters nationwide April 1st. Click the images to embiggen them. (FirstShowing)

The second trailer for Duncan Jones‘s Source Code wastes no time getting to the point. If you like your intrigue sprinkled with cool special effects and Jake Gyllenhaal jumping around on a train, this is your leading source of joy. 

Jake Gyllenhaal is beamed into the body of a doomed train passenger and only has eight minutes to locate a bomb before it explodes. When he fails to do so, he’s beamed back. The more he travels back. the more events shift and change. Careful playing with that kind of fire, Jake. If you mess around too much, your father may never beat up a rapist outside the Enchantment Under The Sea Dance. Then where would you be?

Well, that someone was Max Tannone, the remix artist/DJ/producer behind the appropriately named Jay-Z-meets-Radiohead mashup Jaydiohead.  Selene, the EP, is available now, for free(!), by clicking right here.

Superman rescues mini Duncan Jones. It doesn't matter why.

Forgive the pun but Moon helped rocket Duncan Jones to the top of many best director lists. It was only natural that the offers would come rolling in. Including offers that Jones was too chickenshit to accept. He tells ComingSoon:

“I was thrilled to be on that short list. For me, that was enough. I don’t know if I would be ready for that leap yet. I did have a meeting with Chris and he’s a fantastic guy and seemed to have really enjoyed ‘Moon,’ so there was some legitimate interest in me. I think, maybe, I’m not quite ready for that scale of project and that scale of expectation from an audience that is already existing and is waiting to see the next generation of ‘Superman’ film. I don’t know. It’s a hard one. I’m a huge Superman fan and Bizarro Superman fan. And also a big ‘Judge Dredd’ fan, which was another one that came my way. Those are two very different scales of projects. Superman was so big that I think I was a little intimidated by it and sort of backed out. ‘Judge Dredd’ I really thought about and it ended up not being right for me because I had such strong feelings and opinions on what I wanted that film to be. Although I really like what they’re going to do with it, it’s not the film that I was going to make. So that one wasn’t going to work out.”

I can understand not wanting to touch Superman with a ten-foot pole. It comes with a whole set of expectations and no matter how good it is, it will not be embraced by the fans. To see what I mean, bookmark this article and read it again the day after the Spider-Man reboot is released. You’ll have a new found sense of perspective.

Wunderkind director Duncan Jones is making the most of his downtime, discussing his third feature before the second one, Source Code, has even been released. While he had indicated that his next project would be Mute, the story of a mute Englishman searching for his girlfriend, it appears now that due to the lukewarm reaction to a leaked script, he’s looking past that one for the time being. He clearly puts a lot of stock in the opinion of the blogosphere if he’s willing to sit on a project because of lukewarm public reaction to an early draft of a script. Perhaps too much?

Fortunately, his new project sounds interesting, so don’t shed too many tears for that mute Brit. He’ll find his girl one day. In the interim, Jones is working on an untitled Blade Runner homage that he is writing himself. If you are a fan of cities and of the future (and honestly, who isn’t?) then you’ll be drooling over this next project, which Jones refers to as a “city-based future film.” Granted there isn’t too much to get excited about in that revelation, but anything with Blade Runner in its DNA is probably going to garner some buzz. No details are available regarding production schedule or release, but if it’s not taking place in the distant future, he should probably get crackin’. (/Film)
