    OK, so your a regular slacker joe. You're standing in line and a random beautiful stranger tells you your father was killed last night and that he was the world's greatest asassin.

    And now you're being recruited by your father's old supervillain group and trained to use your inheirited ability to use weapons with deadly skill so that you can kill the people who kille dyour father and become an "asassin for fate".

    This is the situation of Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) in next years movie "Wanted", based on the comic series by Mark Miller. Also starring Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman.

    Looks very impressive. The director made "Night Watch" which I feel is a very good sign, could make for a very creative film. I never got to see all of "Night Watch", but what I did see was highly impressive.

    Could be Lock Stock meets Xmen. In a very good way.

    I saw this trailer the other day. It does look pretty cool. I haven't seen James McAvoy in anything besides Narnia, but he was excellent in his role there, so I have high hopes.



    Trilobite, while a bit random, what that quote is talking about is people's skill in this movie to curve bullets. At least, that was what was shown in the trailer. It's quite possible that they can do other fancy things with other weapons, too.

    This looks like it could be good, even though I am starting to tire of seeing Jolie playing a gun toting assassin or similar character..
