blame it on Shake October 31, 2007

Common takes on a roll similar to Smokin Aces in this new movie based on the graphic novel by Mark Millar. Set to hit theatres March 28, 2008. You’ll get a sneak peak of the movie if you are seeing American Gangster this weekend (like Shake is) as the trailer will be airing. Starring Angelina Jolie, Moran Freeman and James McAvoy.

You know the 2dopeboyz are keeping you in the loop with ALL things hip hop (and not at times). Check out the plot and screen shots below.

The premise of Wanted is that all the world’s super-villains decided to band together in 1986 and use their vast collective powers — including mad science, magic and mind control — to eliminate all the world’s superheroes and rewrite reality in their own dark image; prior to this the world was a brighter, more hopeful place (a clear reference to the end of the Silver Age). Superheroes are remembered as fiction (as they are in the real world), and behind the scenes a cabal of the leading super-villains run the entire world.

Mama’s boy Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is offered the opportunity to seek revenge in the murder of his father, who was a super-villainous assassin. Gibson is invited by his father’s partner, Sloan (Morgan Freeman), to follow in his father’s footsteps. Sloan’s second-in-command (Angelina Jolie) mentors Gibson. Wesley Gibson follows the death orders issued by the Fates, weavers who read individuals’ destinies in fabrics produced by mystical looms.” – Plot [via Wiki]
