Matt Damon’s ‘The Adjustment Bureau’ moves to March 2011
HollywoodNews.com: Universal is moving the release date for the Matt Damon sci-fi thriller “The Adjustment Bureau” again.
Originally, the film based on a Philip K. Dick story was expected to roll out in July. Then the studio decided September 17 was prime. In fact, had “Adjustment” bowed then, it would have been a year since Damon’s last fall film “The Informant!”
The new date for “Adjustment”? March 4, 2011.
Vulture reports, “While this move takes the film out of contention for this year’s Oscars, perhaps it will provide box office dividends like those enjoyed this past February by the similarly bumped Shutter Island.”
While that might be true, the date marks a year after the time when Damon bowed “Green Zone” to disastrous results at the domestic box office; the $100 million film only made $35 million.
“Adjustment” was directed by George Nolfi and stars Emily Blunt, Terence Stamp and John Slattery.
