R-rated Wanted trailer

May. 23, 2008by: James Thoo

A new trailer for the upcoming WANTED has hit the webs. It's in Russian, but it's definitely worth a watch anyway. You can check it out over HERE. The film tells the story of an apathetic nobody (James McAvoy) who is recruited by his late father's organization to be an assassin. Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman co-star and Timur Bekmambetov (NIGHT WATCH) directs.

On a day when I finally saw footage from a film I might actually be more excited about than THE DARK KNIGHT, I didn't expect to be impressed by anything again today. But this trailer is pretty great. I mean it has pretty much everything: hot chicks, sports cars, explosions, assassins, meat cleavers, sniper rifles, keyboard violence - how could this thing not be awesome? The only things missing are lesbian cheerleaders, Lo-Pan and a cyborg army, but I'm presuming they were just left out of promotional material. I mean, you gotta save something for the movie.
Extra Tidbit: Konstantin Khabensky, star of Bekmambetov's NIGHT WATCH played "The Exterminator" in WANTED.

so happy someone mentioned Lo-Pan. I think that it would be an excellent idea if those people who were illegally censoring movies would insert Lo-Pan into scenes deemed violent or explicit instead of showing them. Like use Lo_pan instead of blurring faces.

brutally awesome

So they changed the story around a bit, seems like they've gotten rid of the superhero suits and mutants, which were very cool. But it's obviously still the idea and tone of Millar's work and looks fantastic. wow, best trailer i've seen for a while.

Can't say I've read the source material, but this movie looks like awesome fun for me. Sometimes that's all you need in a summer movie film.

Does not suck the Don't balls

This is gonna be awesome. Yes I read the comic, I loved it.. But i also love this, it's like a violent Rated R film that doesn't apologize it glorifies the killing. So they changed a few things to make it more of an ease to film. I'd suggest to anyone out there to check out the feature posted here a week or so ago.. It looks like it's straight out of the comic. People need to calm down..

A Sucks-Donkey-Balls Screen Adaptation Of An Awesome Comic Book

I'm a huge Mark Millar fan and of WANTED. The comic book mini-series was awesome. Sadly, from the trailers of the movie, I'm not seeing Mark Millar's story faithfully adapted. It looks more like more of the Hollywood machine working to make more money by casting huge stars and sacrificing a great story filled with interesting characters (i.e. S***head, Johnny Two-Dicks, and F***Wit) just to keep MPAA off the studio's back. The Fraternity isn't composed of 'enforcers of Justice' these are a

The Fraternity isn't composed of 'enforcers of Justice' these are a 'new generation of heroes' as the official movie website hypes about, the group is composed of villians who have taken control of the world. For the main character of Wesley Gibson, in the comic, it's all about the pursuit of selfish, egocentric pleasures.

Not seeing the movie. I'll stick with the comic. I probably won't even rent it when it hits DVD shelves.
