A movie called Wanted and created from a six-issue comic book published in 2004 is set to open in theatres on Friday.
The movie should do okay at the box office, as it stars Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy.
Jolie plays the role of Fox, a no-nonsense assassin who takes Wesley, a guy working a dead end job played by McAvoy under her wing, instructing him in the ways of a true coldblooded killer.
Jolie’s hubby Brad Pitt should be jealous, as one particular scene in the movie shows the two stars kissing. I wonder if they got that right on the first shot?
“I think what’s really cool is that with James as an action hero – he’s not an obvious action movie star – but with him, it will be nice for people in the audience to actually relate to him, like, ‘If that was me and I was working in my little cubicle and my life sucked, but I had skills and I didn’t know what I was worth, could I do that?’” says Angelina.
“James surprised me a lot. James represents the everyman, and that is very, very cool to see.”
We all know about Jolie’s past work, but for those interested in movies that McAvoy has appeared in, he has had roles in “Atonement” and “The Last King of Scotland.”
Wanted is rated R, due to violance, not so pleasant language, and some skin shots. Its duration is 110 minutes.
