New Stills of Jake Gyllenhaal as Colter Stevens in "Source Code" (2011)
"For a while back there it looked liked Duncan Jones' second movie would be a sci-fi tapering close to the Blade Runner-stylings of Ridley Scott. Source Code, though, got in ahead of the Berlin-set Mute and has more of a Scott Jr. feel to it. Tony would be happy with this scene which introduces the prickly chemistry between Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Christina (Michelle Monaghan) without sacrificing the sense that something important is about to explode".
