WANTED" /> The comic based action thriller WANTED will probably be written off as mindless and somewhat pointless action bullshit but the featurette the folks at "Empire Online" recently posted shows us one very important thing - that it's really, really cool mindless action bullshit. Most of it is stripped right from the comic panels and has translated, at least visually, quite well. Director Timur Bekmambetov seems to continue the visual flair he displayed so well in NIGHT WATCH and its sequel DAY WATCH. In the film, James McAvoy discovers he's a descendant of a long line of assassins with superhuman precision and ability with weapons and is recruited by a mysterious organization (run by Morgan Freeman and of which Angelina Jolie is a member) to do some killing. Check out the featurette over HERE. The bullet curving action begins June 27th.
||Bekmambetov has the third film in the NIGHT WATCH trilogy, TWILIGHT WATCH, coming out next year.
