New Clip And Images From Joe Wright's Teen Assassin Thriller Hanna
Hanna is the next film from director Joe Wright, but even though it stars his Atonement actress Saoirse Ronan, don't think for a minute this is anything like a British period piece or even a beautifully photographed film about romance of any kind. This time around Ronan is playing a killer, raised in the woods by her father (Eric Bana) to be ruthless and tough, sent on the run throughout Europe while hunted by the harsh CIA agent (Cate Blanchett) who killed her mother years before. The movie looks great-- it wouldn't be a Wright film if it didn't-- but it also features more violence, action and gritty modern locales than anything we've seen from Wright before.
I saw Hanna tonight at a special screening in New York, though sadly I'm forbidden from saying much more for a while. One my way out of the screening, though, I was given a flash drive that included the first released clip from the film plus some brand new images. You can check them all out below, and see larger versions of the images in our Blend Film Database. Just a few seconds into this clip you'll realize this is not the same Joe Wright we've known before-- and with the music from the Chemical Brothers and the flashing strobe light in the background, that feels like a very good thing. Hanna opens April 8.
