Trailer Debut: Matt Damon and True Love vs. Shadowy Men in The Adjustment Bureau

Yahoo has your first look at the trailer for Matt Damon and Emily Blunt’s sci-fi actioner “The Adjustment Bureau”. The film is based on a short story by noted sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick, the man who gave us “Minority Report” and “Total Recall”, among many others. George J. Nolfi, who wrote Damon’s hit “The Bourne Ultimatum”, makes his feature film debut with “Adjustment”, which looks like a good little sci-fi thriller. It probably won’t break the box office bank, but I don’t know, a lot about the film’s “true love” and “fate” concepts intrigues me. And apparently Emily Blunt spends a lot of the movie running in that bouncy dress, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that whatsoever.

On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Matt 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.

Starring Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, John Slattery, Daniel Dae Kim, Terence Stamp, Anthony Mackie, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Michael Kelly, Shane McRae, and directed by George J. Nolfi.
