Coming Up: The Adjustment Bureau
Adjusting the future on DVD and Blu-ray in June
Adapted from (or, more accurately, inspired by) the short story "Adjustment Team" by Philip K. Dick, it stars Damon as a political candidate whose chance meeting with a free-spirited dancer (Emily Blunt) threatens to unravel a well-planned future, at least according to a bunch of bureaucratic agents with interdimensional powers and very spiffy hats who do their best to break up their budding romance. George Nolfi (who wrote "The Bourne Ultimatum") makes his directorial debut.
Being a genre movie with science fiction elements and a quantum sensibility, there will be a hefty collection of supplements on both the DVD and Blu-ray editions.
Details after the jump.
