Jake Gyllenhaal took his thriller Source Code to Spain today. The actor and his director, Duncan Jones, were on hand for a photocall at Madrid's Santo Mauro hotel to hype their project's international release. The movie, which Buzz thinks solidifies Jake's action star status, came in second at the box office behind Hop over the weekend. Jake headed overseas after a busy promotional visit to the Big Apple, where he made the morning show rounds, attended the NYC premiere of the film, and even made a cameo on SNL. He also apparently had time for romance, since he was spotted out on a date with a mystery woman.
I've been perusing the long list of interesting-looking movies scheduled for this year's Tribeca Film Festival, which starts this week. Some of them, like Moon, are already earning buzz, and I'm anxious to find out what festivalgoers think once they've screened.
Starring Sam Rockwell, Moon is the directorial debut of David Bowie's son, Duncan Jones. The movie has already built some momentum from this year's Sundance Film Festival and now there's a trailer for it. And the trailer is creepy.
The movie takes place in the not-so-distant future and follows astronaut Sam Bell (Rockwell) who is completing a three-year stint on the moon where his only company has been a computer (voiced by Kevin Spacey) named GERTY. From the looks of the trailer, all that time alone on the moon starts to seriously affect Sam's emotional state. Most of the reviews so far say that this is a pretty terrific entry to the sci-fi/horror genre that's buoyed by a great performance from Rockwell.
