SOURCE CODE Breaks Through $100 Million Dollars At Worldwide Box Office!

ENTER THE SOURCE CODE

Just last week, Duncan Jones announced on Twitter that SOURCE CODE had hit $50 Million at the US domestic box office, which in itself was a fantastic achievement!

Duncan Jones announces Source Code hits $50 million at US Box Office -  6th may 2011We can now also announce that, over the last weekend, SOURCE CODE has hit over $100, 000, 000.00 in world wide box office. Flippin’ fantastic! And I am guessing maybe a smidgen more than the whole cast, crew, and production team may hoped for.

Brilliant reviews and great word of mouth has spread as SOURCE CODE has rolled out worldwide, and helped to keep it in the US & UK Top 10 for 4/5 weeks after the initial April 1st release date.

In the last two weeks Australia, New Zealand, Poland and Indonesia had their first taste of the mind bending second feature from MOON Director Duncan Jones, and there are still quite a few countries to go before SOURCE CODE completes it’s worldwide theatrical run.

Thanks to everyone who has been out and bought tickets to experience & support SOURCE CODE, showing what we all know, that a lot of us appreciate intelligent, thought provoking, emotionally involving cinema, made by a fantastic team.

MAHOOSIVE CONGRATULATIONS!!! to Director Duncan Jones, Writer Ben Ripley, Stars Jake Gyllehaal, Vera Farmiga, Michelle Monaghan, Jeffrey Wright, Russell Peters & the rest of the cast, composer Chris Bacon and everyone at The Mark Gordon Company, Vendome Pictures & Summit Entertainment.

There’s still time to catch SOURCE CODE at the cinema, for the first time, or for a return visit 🙂

And we are constantly updating the remaining worldwide release dates, so hopefully, you’ll be able to enjoy SOURCE CODE on the big screen near you soon, if you haven’t already.

Thanks! 🙂

Duncan Jones to Direct Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Source Code’

Duncan Jones & Jake Gyllenhaal

Duncan Jones is to direct Jake Gyllenhall in forthcoming Sci-Fi thriller ‘Source Code’

Screen Daily reports from the American Film Market festival:

Philippe Rousselet’s Vendome Pictures has announced its first project, teaming with Mark Gordon on the sci-fi thriller Source Code starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Summit International has already pre-sold rights to more than 15 territories at AFM.

Duncan Jones, fresh from his critically acclaimed low budget sci-fi Moon, will direct the story of a US soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown commuter and is forced to live and relive a train bombing until he can find the perpetrator. Ben Ripley wrote the screenplay with revisions from Billy Ray.

Responding to questions regarding the progress on ‘Mute’, Duncan Tweeted:

For those asking, Mute still in the plans, just slightly delayed. It’s a hard sell.. whereas Source Code came with an offer hard to refuse.

Its a good step up in budget and ambition. I’m excited to work with Jake G too. Cool guy. I like him.

Response so far from those that have read the script is very positive, with our good friend @crazysphinx saying:

Don’t know which draft, but I read the script sometime ago. It’s really good. Can’t wait to see @manmademoon ‘s take on it 🙂

And Alex Billington at FirstShowing.net chipped in with:

Just found out Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) is directing Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal – I’ve read the script, it’s frickin’ awesome!
