wanted jolie New Wanted Trailer: Looking Better And Better

The more I see of the upcoming action flick Wanted, the more I look forward to it.

There’s a brand new trailer out which you can watch below and it has lots of new scenes we haven’t seen before. My pre-viewing opinion on this is that if you can get past the incredibly over the top absurdities in the film, it ought to be a heck of a wild ride.

About the only thing that I think may get old is the curving bullet thing that seems to play such a big part in the movie. That gag shows up three times in the two minute trailer below and I know it’s used at least one other time from a scene I’ve seen elsewhere.

Gotta say the “shooting the wings off a fly” was just about laugh out loud funny, and if you do a Google search on Wesley Gibson you’ll get 456,000 hits and not zero – but beyond that I say: bring it!

BTW, an interesting bit of info came up during this past weekend’s Wizard World Philadephia according to Sci-Fi Wire. For fans of Mark Millar’s graphic novel upon which the movie is based, there’s been some complaining that there are no super-powered villains in the movie (although I’d argue they seem pretty much super-powered to me) although there are in the book. It seems that the movie is based on the original idea for the book, was optioned before the book was complete and the Millar took the story in a different direction in his graphic novel.

Mel Caylo, a spokeman for Top Cow Productions stated:

“At that time, Mark had an idea based around a society of assassins that worked underground or behind the scenes, and that’s what the producers bought. Mark then decided to go in the direction that Earth was once populated by superheroes, but they have been vanquished, … and supervillains now run the Earth [in] five major cabals that run the whole world. They went with the original concept and based the film on that.”

Wanted opens on June 27, 2008.

  1. Yeah, gotta admit that car flip was cool. I slowed down the trailer and although McAvoy’s car starts to “jump” before it even reaches the Corvette, they did at least have Jolie (ok, her stunt driver) brake hard in order to make the nose dive down to simulate forming a ramp. :-)


  2. I’m sharing your opinion. The more I see trailers, the more I want to see this movie. The curving is really a major note. I loved the last bit, about the car-flip. :)


  3. When you’re at that movie, in the silence of the slow motion car flips, you’ll hear someone shout “wokka wokka wokka” because it is SO Speed Racer & his jump jacks.

  4. I think this movie will be an incredible experience in the theatre.

    the MAJOR problem I have with it is how it copies the Matrix exactly.

    White guy in office, a nobody, is the future recruit and salvation of underground group (uhh…Neo?)

    Super hot and crazy good fighter badass chick recruits him and shows him the loops, becomes main love interest (uhh…Trinity?)

    Chick takes Neo to older and wise leader and mighty teacher who is black (uhh…Morpheus?)

    Why don’t they just call this:
    “Matrix: The other idea for it”

  5. Rob, yeah… the similarities are hard to ignore.


  6. I’m a fan of Night Watch and Day Watch but other than the Russian Trailer that just came out a while ago I have zero interest in this. If you drop Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie from the trailers the movie suddenly becomes a whole hell of a lot better.
