'Angelina Jolie' coming out of her pregnancy and 'A Might Heart', wanted to make an action film. 'Ian Livingston', president of Eidos at the time, confirmed that there were talks with Paramount to make a third Tomb Raider movie. The movie had to be shot and be released by the end of 2007 due to Paramount's contract. That was impossible so the plans were scrapped. Angelina Jolie decided to film Wanted and she personally picked the Tomb Raider 2 writer to tailor the role of Fox for her and completely reshape the film to her likes. See more »
The Fraternity would not have called themselves that 1,000 years ago. The word first appeared around 1309, as the Middle English word "fraternite." In fact, the founders would have spoken Old English, which has more in common with Old Norse than Modern English. The closest equivalent would probably be a word based on "broþor", the Old English for "brother" (as in brotherhood). The founders would not have spoken Old English. The "birthplace" of the Fraternity is revealed to be Moravia, part of the Czech Republic (where Wesley goes to confront Pekwarsky). "The Fraternity" would simply be a relatively modern English translation of the original Czech name. See more »
It's my anorexic boss' birthday. This means there's a certain amount of inter-office pressure to stand around the conference table, eating crappy food and pretending to worship her.

There are no opening credits. The title appears as a headline on a newspaper well into the movie. See more »
As action movies go, they don't get much better then this.
The action scenes were amazing... I was sitting on the edge of my seat on more than one sequence. Of course some of it's a bit far fetched but come on... Aren't MOST action movies? James MacAvoy did an amazing job playing the average joe who is suddenly told he has the ability in him to be a "wolf among the sheep" I enjoyed his American accent. Angelina was great. She does very well in roles like this and even though she doesn't have too many lines she pulls off her character who TRULY believes in what she does very well. Plus, she's hot. I mean, I'm a woman who doesn't particularly even like tattoos and I have a crush on her.. ;-) In all I highly recommend this movie. Great summer entertainment!
