Universal Delaying The Adjustment Bureau Until Next March

Universal just announced (via ComingSoon) a bunch of new release dates for some of their upcoming films, one of which indicates that there is a massive delay for one highly anticipated thriller - The Adjustment Bureau, the George Nolfi-written/directed Philip K. Dick adaptation starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt has been moved from September 17th this year all the way until March 4th, 2011 next spring. Taking that spot in September will be the M. Night Shyamalan-produced horror thriller Devil, directed by the Dowdle Brothers. I'm sad to see Adjustment Bureau pushed so far back, as I was really looking forward to seeing it.
Universal also announced dates for: the Strause Brothers' sci-fi thriller Skyline on November 12th; Josh Stolberg's high school comedy Kids in America on December 3rd; Neil Burger's action thriller The Dark Fields on January 21st, 2011; James Cameron-produced underwater thriller Sanctum 3D has been moved up to February 4th, 2011; and the Greg Mottola-directed comedy adventure Paul, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, will arrive on March 18th, 2011. Looks like a lot of the dates in March of next year are filling up with big movies, including Rango and Battle: Los Angeles as well as Red Riding Hood and Sucker Punch.
We've already seen one official trailer for The Adjustment Bureau and I thought it looked quite good, so I'm a bit bummed that we have to wait so long to see it. I'm not sure if this means good or bad things, as it's very hard to tell with Universal and their release dates. We'll keep you updated on these movies, so stick around!
