Philip K. Dick Alert! The Adjustment Bureau Trailer

The Adjustment Bureau

It is startlingly clear that the writers of Dark City were admirers of cult science fiction author, Philip K. Dick. And the film adaptation of yet another one of his stories looks like a much more contemporary (read: less expressionistic set design) version of the same story. Sure the love story and overall ‘peel pack the curtain of paranoia’ are quite familiar at this point (as is the borrowed score in this trailer, is it from the end of Danny Boyle’s Sunshine? Yes.) but hey, science fiction for adults is always a good thing. Bonus: The film has a top-shelf cast including Emily Blunt and Matt Damon (two much loved actors in these parts,) the too-damn-awesome-for-his-own-good Terence Stamp, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Mad Men’s John Slattery. First time director George Nolfi (who apparently only co-writes Matt Damon movies judging by his IMDb page) is the man in charge.

Science Fiction Orgasm. Inception Trailer #3.

Quite Frankly, I am flabbergasted that nobody in these parts, considering how much we love our ‘upscale science fiction blockbusters’ along the lines of The Fountain, Solaris, and District 9, posted the new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception. I’m guessing that this was attached in front of Iron Man 2. Perhaps we all skipped that one considering the ho hum reaction to the first film, or perhaps we have all been sold so much on the film that no further peaks are necessary. I am getting a Paprika, The Prestige, Dark City vibe. And wow, expectations are high for this one. Along with Mark Romanek’s Never Let Me Go it is one of the most anticipated films of the year, (if not THE most anticipated). Bring on the science fiction awesomeness. We demand it.

Mind Blowing (on screen, literally!) Trailer is tucked under the seat.
