Matt Damon is a man that knows how to dart from danger (see the Bourne series or Green Zone), and he's about to get his run on again. In The Adjustment Bureau, Damon plays David, an up-and-coming politico who crosses paths with a ballerina named Elise (Emily Blunt) — until a covert agency steps in to thwart their romance. The reason: David and Elise were never supposed to get together, and their relationship is putting them on different life paths than what was assigned to them. This is where the movie takes a definite sci-fi, part Truman Show, part Minority Report turn, and street chase scenes ensue.
But even if futuristic mumbo-jumbo isn't your thing, the film looks like a love story at its core (as indicated by Damon and Blunt's dramatic smooch!), which is one of the main reasons I'll be seeing it. Plus, man of the hour John Slattery also stars, in a part that's much bigger than his quick cameo in Iron Man 2. I'd say that all stacks up to make this a pretty promising movie, but take a look at the preview, when you
