Network premiere of the breathtaking action movie based on the acclaimed comic book. Night Watch director Timur Bekmambetov helms an incredible spectacle starring James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman, Thomas Kretschmann, Common, Marc Warren and Terence Stamp. Frustrated office worker Wesley Gibson (McAvoy)’s life seems to be going nowhere – he hates his job, he has no money and his girlfriend is cheating on him with his best friend. Then one day a mysterious woman named Fox (Jolie, pictured) finds him and reveals that he is the son of a professional killer and that an assassin named Cross (Kretschmann) is after him. Wesley finds out that he has undreamed-of superhuman talents and is soon inducted into a thousand-year-old secret society of assassins known as the Fraternity, led by a man called Sloan (Freeman). Wesley begins training with the Fraternity and learns impressive combat skills. He is also shown the Loom of Fate, which reveals the identities of the Fraternity’s targets. As he becomes stronger, so does his desire to go after Cross, who also killed his father. But is everything as it seems in Wesley’s new, ultra-violent world?
