The Adjustment Bureau

Please don't screw this up, I don't want another Next, that movie was awful! The first two photos from The Adjustment Bureau appeared online today (via Collider). The Adjustment Bureau co-stars Matt Damon & Emily Blunt (pictured) as well as Anthony Mackie, Terence Stamp and John Slattery. Based on a Philip K. Dick short story, the film is about an affair between a politician and a ballerina (Damon and Blunt) that becomes affected by mysterious forces (a group called the Adjustment Bureau) who are keeping the lovers apart. The photos aren't much (there's nothing more to the one above), but it is our first look at the movie.

Matt Damon & Emily Blunt in The Adjustment Bureau

Here's a better official plot synopsis: On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt)–a woman like none he’s ever known. But just as he realizes he’s falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart. David learns he is up against the agents of fate itself - the men of The Adjustment Bureau – who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path… or risk everything to defy fate and be with her. I love PKD stories! Writer George Nolfi is directing. Hits theaters on July 30th!

I am this supposed to be a Rom-Com, Romantic-Thriller/Suspense/Drama or some kind of Action-flick (The comparison to Next is threw me off).

^ Ohhhh shoot, my bad, that Next comparison was because that was based on a Philip K. Dick short story too and it turned out bad. I love his stories, they just sometimes get butchered being turned into movies. This is actually a "sci-fi romance" or so it says on IMDb.

Damon should do a sci-fi

Okay now that this is happening, I expect to see Flow My Tears the Policeman Said on the big screen. This pic isn't all too great.

Another movie that justifies cheating on your wife. Pass.

Ryan on Apr 10, 2010


Ryan nowhere did it say Damon's character was married, you can be politican and be single.

Xerxex on Apr 10, 2010


Yeah, he doesn't appear to have a wedding band in the photo. I don't think the character is married. Anyway, sounds interesting. I'll check it out.

I`ll ckeck this out even though I`m not a Blunt fan. I am not really sure why she seems to be so popular right now, perhaps I missed something?

#5, who mentioned that the senator was married? Stop seeing cheating everywhere... 6 and 7 are right! It's about time Damon did a sci fi anyway...

I am... on Apr 11, 2010


I love Philip K. Dick's novels. Minority report was an awesome movie, imo. And I even liked Paycheck. I just wish they would do "Ubik", that book is amazing. I am a little tired of Damon though...

Ricardo on Apr 11, 2010


Blade Runner was amazing but very different from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? so you never know

Damn Hollywood is cheap: "Adjustment Team" is in the public domain in the United States because it was published in the United States between January 1, 1950 and December 31, 1963 but copyright was not renewed with the US Copyright Office within a year period beginning on December 31 of the 27th year of the copyright and running through December 31 of the following year. When renewal registration was not made within the statutory time limit copyright expired at the end of its first term and protection was lost permanently.[ Copyright protection for Orbit Science Fiction, Sept.-Oct. 1954 and its contents was created under Registration Number B00000486659. After the author's death, "Adjustment Team" was incorrectly included in renewal Registration Number RE0000190631 (1983-11-22) War veteran, and other contributions by Philip K. Dick, as "(In Imaginative tales, Sept. 1955) Adjustment team. Pub. 1955-07-07; B00000542735."

Anything Matt Damon is in is usually good, and Emily Blunt is fantastic. I'm looking forward to this.

Rick on Apr 11, 2010


I'm sorry but i was not that impressed with The Green Zone, with Matt Damon so if this picture intended to wet our appitites for is next film the Ajustmet Buerau, it dosn't do anything for me.

Cineprog on Apr 11, 2010


They showed the trailer at Date Night, who ever cut the trailer and the people who approved the trailer should be shot. It tells you nothing about the movie. I love both Matt and Emily (who look to have great chemistry from the trailer) but if I didnt like them so much there is no way I would go see it.

Amanda on Apr 11, 2010


Blunt was good in The Great Buck Howard and Sunshine Cleaning.

#12 - hahahah, its true this synopsis sounds fucked up. sorry.....but it does

Conrad on Apr 11, 2010


Now we all know what Matt's serious face looks like.

Frank on Apr 12, 2010


#12 & #18 - I know, I know, these photos really do suck, but what can you do? Plus, it's Universal, they're terrible at marketing, what did you expect. 🙂

Alex Billington on Apr 12, 2010


These photos are MINDBLOWING! They show us absolutely NOTHING about the movie and give us NOTHING to get excited about! Incredible marketing!

SlashBeast on Apr 17, 2010


#8 - Loser You are a loser. But I agree with you. I have no idea why she's so popular all of a sudden. I've looked over her filmography and it's nothing to get excited about.
