While we wait to see what the next feature helmed by "Moon" and "Source Code" director Duncan Jones will be, his latest gig has found him heading back in outer space. Richard Branson is now moving into banking with Virgin Money and Jones has directed by the first ad, and it finds him taking a brief trip back in time.

Utilizing Shepperton Studios where he shot "Moon," as well as extensive use of miniature models, a technique he also used on his sci-fi movie, Jones' ad is a pretty inventive little piece that takes you through the various industries Virgin has touched thus far and where they'll be going next. Oh yeah, and that music? The first piece is Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" (which you remember from "The Exorcist") and the other is Daft Punk's "Outland" from "Tron: Legacy." Pretty nicely done.

The ad is now airing on ITV in the U.K., or you can just fire it up below. [Man Made Movies]

    Yeah. Duncan Jones has ideas from his own thoughts pretty creative. His former films are awesome. Sincerely hope he's gonna make more feature films.

    While the advert is relatively imaginative, and makes an effort to be something aside from previous Virgin adverts I really expected slightly greater things. Though no one can be blamed for taking a side step from feature films, both Moon and Source Code proved to be a step in the right direction as Duncan Jones' style continued to gather momentum in quality and style. I'm really looking forward to the next Jones feature film.
