Check This Out: Wanted Superbowl TV Spot
When I first saw the trailer for Wanted back in October, it was set for release at the end of March. Since then, Universal has moved it to June 27th, a very prime pre-July 4th spot, meaning they're expecting this to open huge. Wanted's Superbowl TV spot that will air tomorrow during the game has been posted online early, which means you can check it out in all of its glory below. I'm not fully convinced that Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov can pull off a summer blockbuster, but maybe they're relying on Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman to sell this. Either way, you need to check this new trailer out.
A lot of people are calling Wanted a rip-off of The Matrix. I wouldn't go that far, but it does look like somewhat of a Matrix mesh with some other flashier summer action blockbusters. I think what will make this unique is Timur's visual style, which seems to stand out the most from the trailers so far. Have a look for yourself - what do you think?
Watch the Superbowl TV spot for Wanted:
Wanted is directed by Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov, of Night Watch and Day Watch previously. The movie is based on a comic book series by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones published by Image Comics. Wanted hits theaters full force this summer on June 27th.
