The trailer for the new Matt Damon-Emily Blunt movie, The Adjustment Bureau, was released today and I’ve got to say, it looks pretty cool. I like everything I’ve seen Damon in before, and Blunt’s a pretty good actress herself, and this slick preview shot the film up near the top of my “must see” list. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer for yourself.
First-time director George Nolfi (writer of Ocean’s Twelve and The Bourne Ultimatum) certainly seems like he knows what he’s doing, and he’s working from a short story by Philip K. Dick, the sci-fi novelist who’s already had one brain-frying story turned into a good film, Blade Runner. The story seems quite cool, with Damon running for Senate and Blunt a ballerina, running into and falling for each other before crazy stuff starts happening and Damon learns the world is completely under the control of these dudes in fedoras. There are some cool visuals, particularly the part where the fedora’d guy lifts up the floor to trip Damon. I’m very intrigued and will definitely see this on opening night.
