WANTED – 7 Movie Clips, From Comic to Screen Featurette, and Behind the Scenes Footage

     June 22, 2008

Opening this Friday is “Wanted” and it’s director Timur Bekmambetov’s English language debut. In case his name sounds familiar…it’s because he did “Day Watch” and “Night Watch.” Anyway, “Wanted” is based upon Mark Millar’s graphic novel series and here’s the synopsis:

25-year-old Wes (James McAvoy) was the most disaffected, cube-dwelling drone the planet had ever known. His boss chewed him out hourly, his girlfriend ignored him routinely and his life plodded on interminably. Everyone was certain this disengaged slacker would amount to nothing. There was little else for Wes to do but wile away the days anddiein his slow, clock-punching rut.

Until he met a woman named Fox (Angelina Jolie).

After his estranged father is murdered, the deadly sexy Fox recruits Wes 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.

With wickedly brilliant tutors—including the Fraternity’s enigmatic leader, Sloan (Morgan Freeman)—Wes grows to enjoy all the strength he ever wanted. But, slowly, he begins to realize there is more to his dangerous associates than meets the eye. And as he wavers between newfound heroism and vengeance, Wes will come to learn what no one could ever teach him: he alone controls his destiny.

So to help promote the film, we’ve been provided with the international trailer, a featurette called From Comic to Screen, 7 movie clips and 10 minutes of behind the scenes footage from when they were making the film. Also, you can expect video interviews with James McAvoy, Thomas Kretschmann and director Timur Bekmambetov in the next few days. Until then…enjoy the videos.
