TRAILER: Jake Gyllenhaal & Michelle Monaghan's "Source Code"

PLOT: An action thriller centered on a soldier (Gyllenhaal) who wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.

CAST: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan (Made of Honor), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air), Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace)

VERDICT:  I usually hate films that have a Groundhog's Day structure (i.e. Vantage Point), but this one sounds pretty cool. The only problem I have is that we have to watch these two people fall in love, 8 minutes at a time, and then they don't even get to be together because she's already dead. Unless of course by movie magic he somehow manages to change that from happening, which will just be far too convenient of an ending. The only thing that'll save it is a major twist, like one of them being the actual bomber.

Release Date: April 1
