The Adjustment Bureau, based on a story by Philip K. Dick, is a film I’ve been looking forward to for a while. It was supposed to release back in September but it got pushed until March. Starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, it has Damon playing a politician who falls in love with Blunt’s character who is a dancer. As their love blossoms, Damon realizes that there is a mysterious force trying to keep them apart. Anthony Mackie, John Slattery, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Michael Kelly, and Terence Stamp will co-star. George Nolfi will direct.
If you’ve seen the trailer (which I’ve included below), you’ll be able to tell why I’m excited for this one. It looks like a solid thriller and Damon certainly knows how to deliver in the departments of action and thrills. It won’t win any awards, but like the Bourne films, I think it should offer up a nice entertaining ride for a few hours. I know many people lost faith in the film after it lost its September release date and bashed the movie when they saw the trailer but I still have hope. It looks interesting and backed by a strong cast, this one could surprise people.
