Starring: Angelina Jolie, Common, James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Terence Stamp,
JAMES McAVOY (Atonement, The Last King of Scotland), MORGAN FREEMAN (Batman Begins, Million Dollar Baby) and ANGELINA JOLIE (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) tell the tale of one overlooked nobody's transformation into an unparalleled enforcer of justice in Wanted. In 2008, the world will be introduced to a hero for a new generation: Wesley Gibson.
Visionary director TIMUR BEKMAMBETOV (creator of Day Watch and Irony of Fate: The Continuation the two biggest films in the history of Russian cinema) powers this twisted and visceral adventure of 25-year-old Wesley (McAvoy), a slacker who hates his life with good reason, because it sucks.
At work, his ballbuster of a boss lives to torment him in front of his fellow cube-dwelling drones. Back home, his skeezy girlfriend is a sexual magnet for everyone except him, including Wesley's supposed best friend. No wonder this loser is on his 10th prescription for panic attack pills, which he downs like candy between cardboard meals of vegan tofu wraps.
Wesley's pathetic excuse for an existence might just as well come to an end and save him a lifetime of prolonged misery.
