Kelly, Kim and Slattery Join The Adjustment Bureau

2 10 2009

Kelly - Kim - Slattery

Philip K. Dick may have the highest batting average in Hollywood. So many successful writers see their work torn to shreds by the movie machine, but Dick’s work has not only produced only one bad movie (2003’s incredibly forgettable Paycheck), but it has been the backbone for some of the greatest science-fiction films of the last three decades, including Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report. While it is hard to imagine that anyone could keep a streak like his going, Dick’s next adaptation, The Adjustment Bureau, is trying its hardest, most recently casting Michael Kelly (Generation Kill), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) and John Slattery (Mad Men), according to THR.

Weekend Review: The Informant!

21 09 2009

The Informant!

When you get past the smaller details, there are two reasons people lie – to protect someone’s feelings and for personal gain. The former, also known as white lies, are told when grandma gives you a pair of tube socks for Christmas or you tell your wife that you would rather go clothes shopping than play golf with your friends. The latter can come in a range of sizes, be it telling your boss you are sick to get out of work or defrauding a major corporation for millions of dollars. Mark Whitacre, Matt Damon’s character in Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant!, certainly falls in to the second category. Read the rest of this entry »

Clips: The Informant!

14 09 2009

The Informant!

After picking up some positive buzz at both the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant! is set to be released nationwide this Friday. For those as impatient as a chimpanzee looking at a banana through a plate glass window, feel free to smash it because we have seven new clips thanks to TrailerAddict. None of the clips are very long, never exceeding 1:15, but they do give a taste for the comedic style and how incredibly dumb Matt Damon’s character truly is. You can check them out on the link above or watch all the clips embedded after the jump.

Just as we always do when we post clips, we will take this opportunity to warn you that watching clips may harm your movie watching experience. We always watch the clips before posting them so that we may warn against spoilers and would be sure to inform you should there be any. Most of these clips are extended scenes from viewers have already seen in the trailers and provide merely a taste of what you can expect from the film as a whole.

A few weeks ago, the trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant came out and I was blown away. The film has a great retro feel and the character that is being played by Matt Damon, Mark Whitacre, seems like it could be a classic character due to his incredible stupidity. That said, the original poster for the film looked like this:
