It seems like eons since the last adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story. On the other hand, the whole world has turned into a Philip K. Dick story. In George Nolfi's THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU (March 4), a politician and a ballet dancer fall in love but are kept apart by mysterious forces. Could it be the Black Swan? With Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.
As a matter of fact, every movie this month seems like it's based on a Philip K. Dick story. In Jonathan Liebesman's BATTLE: LOS ANGELES (March 11), Aaron Eckhart and the Marines take on the aliens in LA. Damn those illegals! In Simon Wells's MARS NEEDS MOMS (March 11), those aliens not busy battling the Marines in Los Angeles are kidnapping spoiled kids' mothers; it's with Joan Cusack and Seth Green. In Neil Burger's LIMITLESS (March 18), which stars Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, and Anna Friel, a man discovers a potion that confers superhuman powers. Didn't we already see that in Love and Other Drugs? And finally, lest we spend a whole year without a film about comic books and aliens, and the geeks who love them, there's Greg Mottola's PAUL (March 18); Seth Rogen and Simon Pegg star.
