Matt Damon thriller “Adjustment Bureau” moved out of summer season

BY SEAN O’CONNELL
Cinematical scribe William Goss predicted this on his Twitter account Tuesday when he wrote, “Curious about ‘Adjustment Bureau,’ but sticks out like sore thumb on summer slate. Sci-fi drama that’s NOT Nolan? A move wouldn’t surprise me.”

Well, a move is exactly what happened when Universal Studious updated its release-date schedule and revealed that “The Adjustment Bureau,” adapted from a Philip K. Dick story and co-starring Emily Blunt, will open Sept. 17, as opposed to July 30, as previously planned.

Instead, the drama “Charlie St. Cloud,” starring Zac Efron as a young man grieving his recently deceased brother, will open in the late July slot. Efron co-stars with Kim Bassinger and Amanda Crew. The story is adapted from a novel by Ben Sherwood.

Is this good or bad for “Bureau,” though? It’s not the best slot in the world. That September weekend generally competes with the Toronto International Film Festival for attention. Last year, however, Sony opened the animated “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” to a healthy $30 million, so there’s hope.
