    20 Films About Doubles And Doppelgangers

    In a culture of cellphone-snapped selfies it’s hard to imagine a time when people might have been afraid of their own image. But Facebook walls and Instagram feeds to the contrary, for the vastly longer portion of human history, to see a perfect replica of yourself was an uncanny event, impossible e...

    Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell & Rob Kazinsky Take Up 'Warcraft' For Duncan Jones

    It was only a matter of time before Duncan Jones entered the blockbuster world. His debut "Moon" managed a huge amount with a fairly slim budget, he stepped up to a bigger canvas effectively with "Source Code," and he's been linked with big projects like "The Wolverine," "Man Of Steel" and "Catching...

    Duncan Jones Confirms He's Meeting With Fox To Discuss Directing 'The Wolverine'

    With "The Wolverine" now defanged a bit thanks to Darren Aronofsky leaving the director's chair and the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan where the film was supposed to shoot, Fox has put the brakes on the highly anticipated sequel which apparently boasts a strong script from Christopher McQuarrie. While Hugh Jackman and the studio are eager to right the many wrongs of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" they are wisely not rushing to get the film moving again. However, last week, intel burbled up that Fox was beginning to look at directors to take on the film with David Slade -- who pretty much had the gig prior to Aronofsky's arrival -- and Dun...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Hop' Defeats Four Newcomers; 'Your Highness' Flops Loudly And Rudely

    Earlier in the year, the tepid box office returns were something to be ignored, as 2011 was competing with the previous year, with both “Avatar” and then the anomaly of “Alice In Wonderland” each raking in a cool billion. Well, it’s April, and it’s time for Hollywood to panic. There have been no genuine out-of-the-box hits so far this year and lots of flops, and the two (barely) $100 million grossers considered underperformers (“Rango” and “Just Go With It”). Let’s face it, part of it is a failure of marketing, but the blame must be laid on inadequate product. Even when it comes to the early year doldrums, this has been a banner year for garb...

    David Slade & Duncan Jones In The Mix To Direct 'The Wolverine'?

    Fox has played it smart since Darren Aronofsky left "The Wolverine." Instead of a rush of shortlist candidates hitting the web, and studio and its star, Hugh Jackman, have kept cool, insisting they want the right person for the job. But it appears we've just seen the tip of the iceberg of potential ...

    Jake Gyllenhaal Says There's A 'Source Code' Alternate Ending We May See On The DVD & More

    9 More Revelations From Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga & The Film's Burgeoning Action StarDuncan Jones' suspense-filled sci-fi-ish time-twister, "Source Code," starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright, isn't particular hard to follow, but if you haven't seen the film, you might not quite understand the conceit yet. Essentially it's like "Groundhog's Day" only set within the framework a sci-fi thriller. In the film (and all of this is taken from the official Apple trailer synopsis, so do not cry spoilers, please) decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown ...

    Q&A: Duncan Jones Says 'Source Code' Was A Sensible Career Move To Control His Own Creative Destiny

    British Filmmaker Talks His 'Superman' Meetings With Christopher Nolan & Wanting To Stick To His Original ProjectsOnly an elite few group of filmmakers get offered a chance to meet with Christoper Nolan to discuss potentially directing the new "Superman" film he's producing, let alone first time filmmakers, but that's exactly what happened to Duncan Jones. Though he bowed out of the running on his own volition and Zack Snyder got the gig, it's a rather huge testament to Jones' unique filmmaking aesthetic that he was even allowed in the front door. But after Jones' low-key sci-fi debut "Moon" hit at Sundance 2008, the British director (and son...

The filmmaker is currently traveling around the country to introduce advanced screenings of the sci-fi actioneer everywhere from SXSW (where we first caught the film) to last Friday at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens.

    SXSW: Duncan Jones & Screenwriter Ben Ripley Talk The Reality Bending 'Source Code'

    Duncan Jones' "Source Code" booted up at SXSW, kicking off festivities last week, and word has been good. In our review, we noted that "Jones remains a strong and original voice in a genre badly needing of both" and whatever you may think of his followup to "Moon," it is undeniably unlike any other ...
