New Wanted featurette sheds some better light on the film

When we went to Wondercon in Feb., James McAvoy was there talking about the film and he brought and extended scene with him. It wasn't that great. It actually dampened my hopes for the film. The FX looked pretty lame, some of the shots were questionable and some of the black artifacts coming through looked like it had in fact been shot digitally (this is the first feature film to use the Red Camera) so I took and put the film in the loss column right then and there in order to be pleasantly surprised if the film is actually decent. But this new featurette posted over at Empire got my hopes up a little. To see Mark Millar talk about the transition and to hear him say that he had his fears too actually made me push the film back over to the win column. Of course, we'll just have to wait and see what transpires once it actually drop in June.

Well, now we know the first 40 minutes are just like the comic. That's still a lot of time left to fuck it up though. I'm interested in what Millar thought of the rest of the film. Maybe he woulda said something like "The rest of the film, however, I don't know where they came up with that shit." Fingers are crossed though. Good post.
