Universal Delaying The Adjustment Bureau Until Next March

July 7, 2010

The Adjustment Bureau

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!

    Do you see what bad films do to films that have potential? Studios get nervous and scramble to change a release date. I was really lllking foward to this. Damn 2010 really blows for movies.

    2010 does blow for movies. I think this is the worst year from memory. By the end of the year all I will remember is Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim.

    As I said last time, "the trailer is much better than the actual film, unfortunately. the trailer doesn't show all of the terrible attempts at humor that simply fall flat." Hopefully the studio is reshooting a good amount of the film, or at least the ending, which was lackluster and wholly predictable. That being said, even if they did change the ending (and left the rest of the film intact) it would still be anything but good. I had high hopes for this film just like all of you, but this thing simply failed to deliver. Again, if they do reshoots, that may not be the case when it comes out in March (notwithstanding another delay).

    Ben: What about Exit through the Gift Shop and How to Train Your Dragon? Those were goddamn fantastic.

    @7 & 8, I could not agree more. 2010 has been a bit of a disappointment for movies... thus far.
