Universal has provided us with seven clips from Matt Damon’s upcoming romance/thriller The Adjustment Bureau. Written and directed by George Nolfi (writer of The Bourne Ultimatum), the film is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick entitled Adjustment Team and centers on the apparently forbidden relationship between politician David Norris (Damon) and Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt). As the story goes, the two are kept apart by a mysterious team of adjusters who claim it’s in everyone’s best interest if they go their separate ways. Hit the jump to watch the clips.
The Adjustment Bureau opens on March 4th. In addition to Damon and Blunt, the film also stars Terence Stamp, John Slattery (Mad Men), and Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker).

As Super Bowl Sunday is basically a national holiday for Americans, what better way to celebrate the event than a low budget comedy spoof. And why not throw Matt Damon in on the bit just for fun.
Resident ESPN jokester Kenny Mayne took a visit to Greenfield, a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Penn., where Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy grew up. This is quite a coincidence of coursase the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the Green Bay Packers tonight.
Matt Damon appears in the skit as an over-the-top crank in his role as a high-school rival. Damon of course went to school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and is much younger than McCarthy.
Anyways its a cute little vid. We suggest checking it out.
