Opening in theaters this weekend, “The Adjustment Bureau” stars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.
Based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, we’ll have a lot coverage of this new movie on this week’s Slice of SciFi. But until then, Cinema Blend has an interview with teh stars of the film. Be warned that the interview does contain colorful language…
The movie is very fantastical, with a lot of colorful elements, but there’s an intimate relationship at the heart of it. You guys had great chemistry. How do you build that amid all the fantastical story elements?
Emily: That was the tricky part for me. I had to be aware tonally of what the movie was, what are we doing. I think George encouraged us, and we decided to be very naturalistic. Even The Adjustment Bureau are not flying around on wires doing crazy stuff. They’re pretty accessible sci-fi characters. We had a lot of fun with our scenes because we wanted to find the right kind of chemistry for the characters in order for you to go on a journey with them and want to see them together. I had an easier time in that my character is not aware of this expression of a higher power throughout most of the movie. I think it was trickier for you to balance, Matt.
