Wanted Movie Story

Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman, James McAvoy, Timur Bekmambetov - In Theaters June 27, 2008

Opening June 27, 2008 is the Wanted movie. Story for this film is based on a series of graphic novels by Mark Millar and J. G. Jones. The Wanted movie plot is brought to life by stunning visualist director Timur Bekmambetov, the creator of the most successful Russian film franchise in history—Night Watch.

The Wanted movie story is about one apathetic nobody’s transformation into an unparalleled enforcer of justice. In 2008, the world will be introduced to a hero for a new generation—Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy). Twenty-five year old Wes is the most disaffected, cube-dwelling drone the planet has ever known at the beginning of the Wanted movie plot. His boss chews him out hourly, his girlfriend ignores him routinely and his life plods on interminably. Everyone is certain this disengaged slacker will amount to nothing. There is little else for Wes to do but wile away the days and die in his slow, clock punching rut.

Then, Wes meets a woman named Fox (Angelina Jolie) and the Wanted movie story begins to get interesting. Wes’ estranged father has been murdered and 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 the Wanted movie plot continues, Fox trains Wes how to develop lightning-quick reflexes and phenomenal agility, while he discovers that 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 as the Wanted movie story develops. Slowly, however, he begins to realize there is more to his dangerous associates than meets the eye. 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.

The Wanted movie plot is carried along on the strength of James McAvoy as Wes. Most recently seen in the 2008 Oscar nominated film Atonement, James McAvoy was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in that film. Although a relative newcomer to the big screen, fans may recognize James McAvoy from such recent hits as The Last King of Scotland and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. No doubt, James McAvoy will realize a long and prosperous career in the film industry.

The Wanted movie story also stars Angelina Jolie as Fox. A veteran of the big screen, Angelina Jolie won an Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in Girl, Interrupted back in 2000. She was nominated in 2008 for a Golden Globe for her performance in A Mighty Heart. Angelina Jolie is no newcomer to the action-adventure genre, as she gained early recognition and fame from her lead role in two Lara Croft: Tomb Raider films.

Veteran actor Morgan Freeman also stars in the Wanted movie plot as Sloan. Perhaps one of the favorite actors of modern times, Morgan Freeman has starred in almost 100 films in his more than 40 year career. Morgan Freeman won an Oscar for best supporting actor for his role in Million Dollar Baby in 2005.
