This new featurette about June 27's Wanted praises how true to the Mark Millar comic the super-assassin movie will be. But watching the bit where James McAvoy's character hits his boss with a computer keyboard so hard, the man's teeth and the computer's keys fly through the air and spell "FUCK YOU," it feels more like a tribute to an old Asterix comic. In any case, turns out it doesn't matter that Wanted jettisons the entire plot of Millar's comic, as long as it duplicates some of the wildest action sequences involving bullets passing through exploding heads. This featurette, courtesy of Empire Magazine, gives a good sense of just how hard Wanted works to earn its "R" rating. [Empire Online]
