hey everybody! of course i’ve heard about the upcoming angelina jolie action-packed flick wanted (which also stars cutie jame mcavoy (from atonement) and morgan freeman) but i didn’t actually watch the trailer until tonight – and hot damn it looks freakin’ awesome (you can catch it below if you haven’t already) i don’t know why i didn’t watch it sooner – shame on me! (of course we’ve all been tricked by trailers before…i sincerely hope this is not one of those times) the movie is loosely based on the comic book series of the same name written by mark millar (with art by jg jones) and is directed by timur bekmambetov – i think it could be the hot movie of the summer which is right around the corner (today happens to be the start of spring) ms. jolie is brilliant in action films – i absolutely loved mr. & mrs. smith (the film that brought brangelina together) however i sadly doubt angelina will be doing a lot of press appearances in support of the film (which opens on june 27th) she’ll be much closer to having her supposed fraternal twin babies – a boy & a girl! (possibly in france) yet thankfully there’ll be no drummed up competition by the tabloids between angelina and jennifer aniston (like ‘jen & angie face off at the box office’) jen’s summer flick he’s just not that into you doesn’t open until august 1st (which has a kick-ass cast – although i totally prefer action flicks over romantic comedies any day) popbytes over & out for tonight – thank heavens tomorrow is friday – xxoo!
In 2008, the world will be introduced to a hero for a new generation: Wesley Gibson. 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 and die in 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.
