Angelina Jolie is more of a celebrity than an actress. She sells more magazines and newspapers than she does movie tickets – it’s true. Has she ever been in a hit movie, a movie that had bums on seats because she was the lead?
The first Tomb Raider would have made bank… even if I was the star, and Mr and Mrs Smith was a hit because of the tabloid stories about Miss Jolie and Brad Pitt.
Jolie should have more luck with Wanted. The comic book adaptation (what else) is directed by Russian helmer Timur Bekmambetov, the man behind Day Watch, Night Watch and the forthcoming Twilight Watch (do you see what he’s doing here?).
Wanted looks bizarre in a sort of crazy Matrix way. let’s just hope that it doesn’t take itself as seriously – however from what I’ve seen that shouldn’t be an issue. The film has a pretty cool cast lined up alongside Jolie: James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman and the fantastic Terence Stamp.
A new poster for the film has now been released and we can tell that the film stars Jolie with a gun, tattoos and a scary skeletal arm.
To see the poster- continue reading.
This movie looks like a crazy piece of summer entertainment. Let’s hope it’s good.
Wanted opens on June 27.
