Wow, if the American trailers for Russian director Timur Bekmambetov’s “Wanted” had been half as good as the one the studio cut for Russian consumption, more people would be jacked to see “Wanted” on the big screen. This thing is not just bloody, but it’s packed to the gills with outrageous action scenes. Also, notice that they actually digitized a lot of the words in the movie into Russian. I have no idea if they do this for the entire movie, or if this is just for the trailer.
