Must Watch: Badass Russian Wanted Trailer!
Just because most people didn't have the chance to actually see the featurette that was posted recently for Wanted, we thought we'd to show you a new trailer full of some awesome footage. We've discovered a new Russian trailer that includes some of the scenes that were originally seen in that featurette. I don't know what the heck anyone is saying or what the heck is going on, but that doesn't matter, because there is definitely some badass action in this new trailer. No one was expecting this to really be that great, but now it looks like it could actually be pretty damn good! Be weary - there are some definite red band scenes of violence found within the trailer below! Thoughts?
Watch the Russian trailer for Wanted:
After his estranged father is murdered, the deadly Fox (Angelina Jolie) recruits Wes (James McAvoy) into the Fraternity, a secret society that trains Wes to avenge his dad’s death by unlocking his dormant powers. As she teaches him how to develop lightning-quick reflexes and phenomenal agility, Wes discovers this team lives by an ancient, unbreakable code: carry out the death orders given by fate itself.
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.

Looks really interesting! As long as the story is solid this movie will probably be pretty awesome.

Superb. Timur Bekmambetov is a visionary. Forget the Millar book - which, let's be honest, is pretty much unfilmable - this looks like a grown up slice of carnage. Some very, very pretty tricks coming out of the bag here. And shot on a considerably smaller budget than the rest of the summer fare.

In the featurette, wasn't Millar marveling how closely the movie follows his comic book? Judging by this trailer, they've gotten rid of the superheroes vs. supervillains and raids to alternate universes storyline pretty much completely. A shame, really, but I guess budget limitations forced the alterations.

This is one of the few trailers where telling the story actually helps to get one interested. I love the fact that they typed "farewell" in russian on the bullet just for the russian version of this.

And the keyboard letters. That's pure Timur. Genius. I just hope he stays in the action genre for a while longer. He seems to be making good use of his time in hollywood so far.

oh, i wish it was in english! but it looked fantastic! i just finished the graphics novel, i wonder how much they will keep from the original story, as to it is a very off the wall, weird one. I reccomend it to anyone who like surprises.

Soft McAvoy and his noodle arms look severely miscast, but hopefully the movie can overcome that.

Just when I pressed play on this trailer, music started. It was the Rolling Stones "Sympathy for the Devil". As I watched the trailer with the music running, I thought this trailer was awesome! Then I heard something underneath the music and realized, 3/4ths of the way through the trailer, that the music was part of a radio station I had been listening to before that had gone silent for a little. The trailer looks great, but I think the music added a much better touch! Just a funny one for ya.

HOLY FUCKING GOD!

Nice language Leon. You're ignorant. Well, it took a few trailers but I'm very excited for this one. Is it just me or does this have a "Fight Club" ora about it? Maybe it's just the keyboard scene. It just seems like Timur can do no wrong right now & he's leaving a gang of action directors in the dust.

definitely love the slow-mo shots! just quite unrealistic especially with the bullet that remained intact after piercing through a guys head... but i could let the one pass though... every time a new stuff comes out for this one, it gets getting better and better will watch this!

Looks like they are sticking to the books................. Love the keyboard bitch slap
SHANE D on May 23, 2008
Yeah...i agree with everyone and think this movie will be alot of fun. The same fun I had at Shoot Em Up last year. But to think it's going to challenge Wall*E for box office is absurd. No way is a violent R Rated film going to over take a family friendly G Rated Disney Pixar movie.
