If you were to live, die, repeat like Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow character, what would you do over and over again? BAFTA-winning Director Duncan Jones (Moon) takes us on a time-travelling ride in Source Code (watch it on VUDU), starring Jake Gyllenhaal (Zodiac, Donnie Darko). Lakeshore Records released the soundtrack to this critically-acclaimed movie, scored by Composer Chris Bacon (The Dark Knight, Blood Diamond). Expect to find a soundtrack filled with big orchestrals which underline every thrilling moment of this movie.
Gyllenhaal’s character, Colter Stevens, is a soldier who finds himself a part of a covert government computer program called “Source Code,” in which he gets to re-live the last 8 minutes of a man’s life over and over again in order to locate a Chicago commuter train bomber. He soon finds himself on a separate mission to save Christina Warren, played by Michelle Monaghan (Better Living Through Chemistry, Expecting). Source Code also stars Vera Farmiga (A&E’s Bates Motel) as Colleen Goodwin, an official from the Source Code operation who interfaces with Colter Stevens. It’s a small world: Composer Chris Bacon now scores the Bates Motel TV series.
