If we ever had to be arrested, we'd want Jake Gyllenhaal to be the one to slap on the cuffs.
Jake makes law enforcement downright sexy in "End of Watch," the gritty new cop thriller in which the all-grown-up "Donnie Darko" star intimidates criminals with his piercing blue eyes (and sometimes with a gun, too). We'd certainly feel safer in a world where Jake's out there on the streets — serving, protecting and rocking that blue uniform.
Put your hands on your head and gaze upon Gyllenhaal in our Hot People Looking Hot photo gallery. "End of Watch" is now in theaters.
Imagine if you were forced to relive eight minutes of someone else's life over and over again. This is the intriguing premise of "Source Code," the second feature by Duncan Jones, the director of "Moon" and the unsurprisingly talented spawn of David Bowie.
When young soldier Colter Stephens (Jake Gyllenhaal) awakens, he finds himself on a Chicago commuter train sitting across from a beautiful woman named Christina (Michelle Monaghan). Confused as to why she thinks he is a schoolteacher named Sean Fentress, Colter explores his surroundings until a bomb goes off eight minutes later, destroying the train and killing everyone on board.

In the just-released movie "Source Code," Jake Gyllenhaal wakes up on a train to find out that his consciousness has been transferred into another person's body. What he may not realize is that he's part of a long and glorious Hollywood tradition dating back more than 20 years.
Why the two-people-magically-switching-bodies theme has been such a persistent one in the movie world, we're not quite sure - it's not like "18 Again" broke the bank at the box office. Whatever the cause, a surprisingly large number of actors have had to follow the direction, "Now, look into the mirror and realize that you're not looking back at your own face." Get More »
Vera Farmiga may be one of the few true artistes working in Hollywood today. She dabbles in a little bit of everything, starring in big Hollywood productions, small indies and directing her own films (her debut "Higher Ground" premiered at this year's Sundance).
In "Source Code," the new sci-fi thriller from "Moon" director Duncan Jones, she delivers a performance with the same gravitas she'd tackle any picture with, big or small. She takes her work seriously and it shows -- her role as Colleen Goodwin, the military officer in constant contact with Jake Gyllenhaal's time traveling solider, full of life, even though she spends most of the movie staring at a computer monitor.

One might think any upcoming mind-bender is just trying to ride the coattails of box office hits like "Inception" and "The Matrix." But "Source Code" -- in theaters Friday -- is its own exhilarating roller-coaster ride, breaking the conventions of other action thrillers to become one of the most exciting films of the year.
"Source Code" stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Colter Stevens, a soldier who wakes up on a Chicago train in the body of another person and finds that he’s part of a mysterious government operation known as Beleaguered Castle. His job is to stop the train’s bomber -- but wait! Colter must travel back in time and experience the explosion -- over and over again -- until he uncovers the train terrorist’s identity. Get More »
Michelle Monaghan knows her action movies. Unlike many of her contemporaries, the actress kicked off her Hollywood career rather quickly in high profile movies like "The Bourne Supremacy," "Mission: Impossible III," "Eagle Eye" and more.
Now, she co-stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the mind-bending thriller "Source Code," and once again she's front and center in the action. Under the direction of Duncan Jones ("Moon," son of Bowie), "Code" follows Colter, a solider (Gyllenhaal) sent on board a train that will blow up eight minutes after he arrives, and using some cool gadgetry, is able to relive the events final eight minutes to uncover the cause.

In a time when studios are content to put a couple of floating heads on a sheet of paper and call it a promotional poster, where is a fan of creative movie-based art to turn? South, dear friends, to awesome independent movie theater Alamo Drafthouse and its associated art boutique, Mondo.

Director Duncan Jones brought skilled storytelling and realistic old-school effects to his acclaimed 2009 science-fiction drama "Moon." Jones' tale of a lone human operator in an isolated lunar mining facility was a power-packed directorial debut that left us on the edge of our seats eagerly awaiting what the filmmaker had in store for us in the future.
Well, the future has come... in the form of the sci-fi action thriller "Source Code."

The film's official synopsis primes us for a mixture of "Total Recall," "Inception," "Déjà vu," "Avatar," topped off with a large dose of "Groundhog Day..." Get More »
