Clips From the The Adjustment Bureau

The Adjustment Bureau is scheduled to hit theaters in two weeks (March 4 to be exact) and the studio has started doing the extra free advertising in which they release clips and such into the wild. Cinema Blend has gotten six different clips, one of which is posted below. The rest are visible on their site. It’s not that I felt bad adding more than one of the videos here for your viewing pleasure, but that every time I tried it crashed my browser. Clearly Cinema Blend’s staff is full of malicious hackers who are trying to get their salacious worms into my Internet tubes.

So the gist of the movie is that Matt Damon is a Congressman who falls for dancer Emily Blunt, but weird guys in suits and cute hats who have the ability to read minds and warp reality are determined to keep them apart for reasons that the trailer and clips assure us will blow our mind. I love “Fringe,” but isn’t it strange that it’s getting a spin off movie already?

In any case, here’s clip the first:

Nice interplay between the two. Now go check out the rest of the clips and come back and talk to us.

I really like what I’m seeing thus far, but the only problem is that short of the ultimate explanation, I’m feeling like they’re giving away an awful lot of the plot with these clips. Oh, I probably should have mentioned that before letting you watch them.

The film is also massively changing the Philip K Dick short story upon which it is loosely based. That can be a mixed bag when it comes to Dick’s work. He’s like the Bob Dylan of science fiction: great as an original, but a lot of the covers transcend the original work.
