New Featurette Delves into the Pseudoscience Behind Source Code

13 March 2011 8:50 AM, PDT | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Parallel realities? Personality shifting? "Forking" the river of time? These are just some of the far-out concepts at play in director Duncan Jones' (Moon) new sci-fi thriller, Source Code, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier whose consciousness is sent back in time and into the body of a dead man over and over again until he can find a way to stop the terrorist attack that killed the man and hundreds of others. Does the plot sound far-fetched to you? Well, according to producer Jordan Wynn, writer Ben Ripley and astrophysicist Dr. Michio Kaku in a new featurette about the movie, there is some actual science mixed in with the pseudoscience behind the Source Code plot.

Q: What was the part about playing the character?

Nathan Fillion: It was my favorite job ever. What wasn’t great about it? I got to wear a low-slung holster. I got to ride horses. I got to have a spaceship. I got to act mean and curmudgeonly.
