Hanna Trailer

Here's the trailer for Hanna, the spy/assassin movie from Atonement director Joe Wright that we've been hearing about since last year, starring Saoirse Ronan, Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana. Call it La Femme Nikita meets Leon or call it Bourne with a 15-year-old girl or call it Modesty Blaise: The Really Early Years; any way you put it, it adds up to cool.  Especially with a red-haired Blanchett playing the Joan Allen role of a vicious CIA bitch hunting our heroine.  (Judging from that shot of Blanchett with the silenced pistol, though, it looks like she gets her hands a bit dirtier than Allen does in the Bourne films.)  This is one of two high-profile female assassin movies from directors better known for artier fare in the pipeline for 2011. The other, Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, seems likely to be more low-brow. (Not necessarily a bad thing, mind you!)
