First Trailer for Joe Wright’s HANNA

     December 20, 2010

The first trailer for Joe Wright’s (Pride & Prejudice, The Soloist, Atonement) Hanna has been released. The thriller features Saoirse Ronan as a teenage assassin who has been trained by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland.  Cate Blanchett, Tom Hollander, Olivia Williams and Jason Flemyng also star.

While I thought The Soloist was a big misfire, I absolutely love Pride & Prejudice and Atonement. I’m really hoping this is a return to form for Wright.  What’s really promising about the trailer is that it looks like nothing Wright has done before and I really can’t wait to see it.   The only negative about the trailer is that it reveals a lot of the story – including what might be a big twist.  Saying that, there is a lot of action and it definitely made me want to see it.  Judge the trailer for yourself after the jump.  Hanna hits theaters April 8 and the music is being done by The Chemical Brothers.

Synopsis: The title character of this adventure thriller, filmed in Europe, Hanna (played by Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan [“Atonement”]) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a soldier; these come from being raised by her father (Eric Bana of “Star Trek”), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland.

Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.
