Some weeks ago I saw the American trailer for WANTED, starring Angelina Jolie. My original thought was in the line of “Bleh…!” Although the glimpse of action looked nice I hated the main story setup of a geeky looser coming into contact with a badass killer association.


And here’s the surprise: although the final result (the movie) is absolutely the same, the trailer workers in Russia managed to create something completely different out of it. I don’t understand one single word they say but in the Russian trailer I get the impression that this guy hates is job, hates his colleagues, hates his life and is in need for a change. And the change is coming. But there is more: this guy doesn’t run, this guy learns to stand up and fight. From the beginning. And this guy kills.

One trailer can make this major difference.

And now it is time for you to compare them for yourself. You can watch the US Version here and the Russian version here.

What do you think?
