Hanna DVD and Blu-ray Release Date

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Award-winning director Joe Wright (Atonement, The Soloist) unleashes the “exhilarating, audacious and boldly original” (Karen Durbin, Elle) in Focus Features’ action-packed film HANNA, available on Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital Download and On-Demand on September 6, 2011 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Academy Award® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones) stars as Hanna, a 16-year-old girl raised in the desolate, icy wilds of Finland by her ex-CIA agent father Erik (Eric Bana Star Trek, Hulk) and trained to become the perfect assassin. Every moment of Hanna’s childhood and adolescence has been spent building up the strength, stamina and survival instincts she needs to prepare for the day she must strike out on her own. That day has now come; armed with the skills her father has imparted to her and the mantra “adapt or die,” Hanna must cross Europe and face her family’s longtime enemy, lethal intelligence operative Marissa Wiegler (Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett Robin Hood, Elizabeth). Featuring a ground-breaking original soundtrack from The Chemical Brothers and filmed on location in Finland, Berlin and Morocco, HANNA is “an exuberant chase thriller that pulses with energy!” (Justin Chang, Variety).

HANNA Film Review

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Jason Bourne meets Hanna Montana . . . no, just kidding about the Montana part but the rest is true. (I really apologize; it was just there for the taking). This is a lot like a young girl version of the Bourne series. This movie is well made. You can tell it is a quality production. The cinematography is excellent. The action scenes are intense, fast, and exhilarating. There is mystery, suspense, and thrills along with just the right music to match. The story on the other hand, although interesting, does push the envelope. READ FULL MOVIE REVIEW

Critically acclaimed electronic duo The Chemical Brothers have teamed up with film director Joe Wright to score Wright’s boldly original adventure thriller Hanna, which stars Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, and Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett. The soundtrack will be released exclusively through iTunes on March 15th, in advance of the film’s April 8th nationwide theatrical release through Focus Features.

From the haunting “Hanna’s Theme,” written for the 16-year-old title character, to the carnival-esque track “The Devil Is In the Details” and the tension-filled “Container Park,” The Chemical Brothers deliver 20 tracks that mirror the ever-changing moods and environments that Hanna (played by Ronan) experiences in her dangerous journey as she is pursued across Europe. Of the original score, Moviefone raves “Trust us when we say they deliver something really special with this one, topping (in our opinion) the much-buzzed-about Daft Punk TRON: Legacy score… as well as Trent Reznor’s [Oscar-winning] score for The Social Network. Oh yes, we just went there.”

The soundtrack will be available on Back Lot Music, Universal Studios’ in-house soundtrack record label. Formed in 2008, Back Lot releases select scores from the studio’s motion pictures.

The Chemical Brothers are currently in Australia and will make their way to the U.S. for the Ultra Music Festival taking place at the end of March. They will also be one of the headliners for the opening night of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival on April 15th. The Hanna soundtrack is their first release since Further, which was released in 2010.
