Even More Clips Released From Hanna
Posted 03.28.11 by Ryan
At this rate, audiences will be able to see almost all of director Joe Wright's Hanna with the amount of preview clips being released.
The movie stars Saoirse Ronan as the title character, who is raised by her ex-CIA father (Eric Bana) in the wilds of Finland to be a teenage assassin and ends up being hunted by a ruthless CIA agent (Cate Blanchett). Two clips were released last month showing Ronan escaping from a CIA compound, and, last week, two more clips showed Ronan undergoing a psych evaluation in the compound, and another of her on the run.
Last month, Ronan described her attraction to the role, which re-teams the actress with Wright, her director from 2007's Atonement.
I want all the roles that I play to hold challenges. With lots of action and a layered character, Hanna had them for me. It’s unlike any other drama that I’ve done. Here is a teenager who has been raised in a forest and has gotten all her education from her father; she’s never even met anyone else before. We meet her as she goes out on her own, and when she does she is fascinated by everyone and everything she comes across. My favorite quality of hers is that she is non-judgmental; she shows an open mind to, and a fascination with, everything. She’s a bit of a freak. But, I like that; I like freaks. Hanna discovers life for the first time, so the movie is not just about a girl who kicks butt — though she certainly does!
The latest clips show Blanchett hiring the Tom Hollander to chase down Ronan, and another shows Bana advising Ronan to run.
