Update: New Wanted trailer now in HD
There's a new trailer for Wanted online, and this one seems to dispense with story and just hit the effects and cool sequences of the film, and in a way that works superbly.
However I just wish there was a little more meat to it. We do discover he's been recruited, and that there's some beautiful lady who is training him, watching over him, and sleeping with him, but other than that it's an extended effects reel.
Still, it's a cracking extended effects reel, and those effects do look spectacular. There's also a slew of new images, which you can see over at Latino Review, including shots of a more muscular James McAvoy, a stick thin Angelina Jolie, and some other shots.
I'm still a bit sore that they've gone and changed the main story line so much from the comic, this whole idea about the weavers of time who order this hired hitman squad to kill people in order to keep it going as planned is all a bit twee...I am tempted to add a 'd' on there.
It just feels a little off to me, and I loved the original idea of them all being the anti-heroes who had defeated all the superheroes in some spectacular ways, or just made them forget who they were.
Here's the trailer from MyMarketingSpace through Latino Review.
Is this better than before, or do you just feel that the trailer creators are playing on the Director's strength and the qualities he's known for?
Update: The trailer is now in HD and can be found over at IGN, only in one size so far, but it won't be long.
