The Adjustment Bureau

Though we got an intriguing first trailer last May, sad news came later that Universal's The Adjustment Bureau starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt would be delayed until March 2011. That creates some worry for the film from first-time director George Nolfi (known previously for his writing credits on films like The Bourne Ultimatum), but I'm still extremely excited to see this. Now some hype comes in the form of a Hitchcockian style poster with tall shadows (reminiscent of The Untouchables) looming after Damon and Blunt. The poster seems a little too clean, but you can check out the full poster below and judge for yourself.

Here's the first poster for The Adjustment Bureau courtesy of IMP Awards:

The Adjustment Bureau poster

An affair between a politician and a ballerina is affected by "mysterious forces" keeping the lovers apart.

The Adjustment Bureau is directed by first-time director George Nolfi, who is best known as a screenwriter who wrote the screenplays for Timeline, Ocean's Twelve, The Sentinel, and The Bourne Ultimatum. Nolfi also wrote the script for this film, which is based on the Philip K. Dick short story "Adjustment Team" (you can read more about here). This was supposed to be released this July, but Universal has rescheduled The Adjustment Bureau to hit theaters on March 4th in spring. I am definitely still planning to see this. You?

    lol what a garbage poster.
    total garbage. these big stars and great looking film deserve something waaaay better looking than this dreck. The shadows are inconsistent with the lighting on the main characters, who by the way, look awful and unfinished...the colors are all off. God they couldn't have asked for a worse poster than this.

    Cool concept. Bad artwork.

    Splendid notion, poor effort.
  • ash
    Would have been batter if at least the shadows were cast in front of them instead of behind them. It looks like they are running TO the bad guys.
  • Not gonna lie, this movie poster looks like it was made in Paint. Still looking forward to the movie though.

    Not feeling this poster, but VERY EXCITED to see another PKDick adaptaion, which are never done very well but definitely worth the effort!!! Scanner darkly came close to capturing his mood... cool.
  • photoshopjunk
    Hitchcock would roll in his grave at that poster.
  • Mr.Cookie
    The lightning is so horribly inconsistent on the main characters with the rest of the poster it makes me cringe. It looks like they was photoshopped on at the last minute.
  • Fisherr
    This looks like a really good movie.
