Anyone else get a good laugh over the new 'Wanted' trailer?

The trailer for Angelina Jolie’s latest, Wanted (opening June 27), has what I like to affectionately call "The Giggle Factor." You know what I mean — when you’re watching a movie or a TV show or an American Idol performance, and something so over-the-top awesome/ridiculous happens that you cannot suppress the urge to bust out laughing.

For me, the Wanted trailer can be broken down into a mathematical equation:That opening sequence with Angelina Jolie’s car skidding into/picking up a bewildered James McAvoy + the "bullet rustles Angie’s tresses" shot + the artsy slabs of meat = Uncontrollable giggling.

And yes, of course I’m going to go see it! What about you?

    I’ll only see it for A. James McAvoy and B. the fact that a friend of mine is one of Angelina’s stunt doubles in the film.

  • Warren

    This is exactly what is wrong with Hollywood. The premise is beyond the pale. “Curve a bullet?” yeah–whatever. If you ask me, going to see this movie you deserve what you get. That is–two hours of your life you will never get back.

    I watched the trailer without volume. Hilarious.

    A little Matrix, hmmmm? Seems to be borrowing a lot from the Matrix movies….I sure hope this a winner for Angie, because the way she’s having babies and traveling around the world, she needs the $$$$…..and is she only one working of that duo? I hardly see where Pitt is in anything. She’s made like 3 movies in the past year to his one….hmm….who’s the wage earner in that relationship?

    Why does James McAvoy keep playing American characters? Come on James, don’t hide your amazing Scottish accent!

  • monica

    how about the part where she lays back on her knees as the train goes in the tunnel? my legs would’ve snapped off, so that was amazing to me. i’m dying to see it. i miss bad ass angie.
    p.s. bj it’s okay if you saw Torque. It’s only a problem if you enjoyed it.

    RE: James McAvoy — he hasn’t played any Americans that I know of…he was in the Last King of Scotland and Atonement and some other British films…and what’s wrong with playing Americans? He wants to break into the American market where there’s more $$$ to be made…he’s dreamy…I love him as an actor. He’s where Colin should have been.

    Oh Noes, Angie doesn’t do her own stunts?!
    That movie looks hilarious. Can’t tell if it’s intentional or not.

  • new yorker

    Oh, I am TOTALLY seeing this movie, and not ashamed to admit it!

  • Alli

    This movie is going to be ridiculous…I’m not yet sure if it will be ridiculous in a good way or ridiculous in a bad way…

  • To Sallyinchicago

    I agree that he’s a fantastic actor and he’s great in whatever he does, but I just want to hear his accent. He played an American in Penelope (which didn’t really make sense because most of the other actors were British and didn’t change their accents). There’s nothing wrong with wanting to break the American market, but he can play a Scot living in this country.
