New Wanted Trailer: International And Restricted

wanted rated r New Wanted Trailer: International And Restricted

I’ll be damned – I just found out that the summer actioner Wanted which stars Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy will be rated R. I’m really surprised at that – I was quite sure they were going to make it a PG-13 bloodless version of The Matrix to bring the kiddies into the theater. Suddenly I’ve got a bit more respect for this thing and it’s looking more like a movie for grown ups.

So… having a “red band” trailer for it makes sense. The trailer below is an international trailer, in Russian, but it’s all about the visuals anyway. While the U.S. trailer makes it look like kind of a hokey PG-13 popcorn movie, the trailer below makes it look much more serious (curving bullet trajectories notwithstanding) and gritty.

Again, this is an R-rated trailer with both explicit violence and some sexual content, so you’ve been warned.

After seeing that I’ve got a whole different feeling about this movie – for the better.

Thanks to /Film for the heads up and find way HUGER versions of the trailer over at the Russian site Filmz.ru (man those guys get a lot of cool stuff…)

Wanted opens on June 27th

  1. Trailer is better, no doubt, but this still just doesn’t seem like my kind of flick.

    For those who are into this kind of film, well, it looks like they’ll get their money’s worth.

  2. Wow .
    I think that looks way better than the version that I saw in english.
    It looks really fun ; I’m a lot more excited about seeing this now :)

  3. It’s a cool trailer.

    The only down side with it is the writing is in Russian and you miss the bit where f*** you is spelled out by the keyboards and teeth.

  4. Oh, this totally changes my expectations about this movie. Now I’m more interested actualy.

    greets,
    Steven

  5. Nice, Makes me think there’s alot less Angelina Holeie in the movie than I thought, which is good. It’s still a huge Matrix rip-off.

  6. I’m just wondering, why is this a matrix rip-off again? I’m just tryin to understand because the storylines don’t really sound similar. Or is it because of the special effects? Anyone?

  7. Lex, if they’re following the plot of the graphic novel, James McAvoy joins a fraternity of super-criminals who took over the world in 1986, killed every superhero who might oppose them and now rule the planet with total impunity. They’ve rewritten reality and wiped everyone’s collective memory using, amongst other things, “seven-dimensional imps and alien super-computers”…! The truth is buried in our subconscious “as half-remembered dreams. And comic books, of course. Approximations of their exploits are still remembered in the funnies, but who even reads them anymore?” Think Watchmen written by Grant Morrison loaded on whisky and terrible powders…

  8. Oh, I see, that makes sense. That cleared up a BIG question of mine. Your in-depth post explained more of the story than what any other sites have explained. So thanks for that because I was not that aware of this film’s storyline. I really can’t wait to see this film! It just looks like an action packed Blockbuster!

  9. I’ve never read the source material, but it will be interesting to see how closely the movie follows it. It seems a lot more conventional from the trailers, but it would be a nice surprise to have that level of depth in the movie instead of just “killing bad guys.”

  10. Yeah, I don’t see anyone flying, for a start!

  11. Now that’s much better and now I’ll go see this!

  12. Looks awesome!
