Feel The Arrowhead at Your Back: Go Behind the Scenes with ‘Hanna’

By  · Published on March 24th, 2011

Because of his luck, Rob Hunter has already seen Hanna, and he had some positive things to say which he’ll expand on in review form as soon as the embargo on reviews gets lifted.

It’s no surprise though. The film is about a teenage girl who is trained from childhood to be a killer, and to kill one specific person. The talent here is tremendous from Saoirse Ronan to Cate Blanchett to Eric Bana to director Joe Wright.

Now, this featurette digs deeper into what Blanchett called “the most terrifying script [she’d] ever read in her life” by looking briefly at the action, the actors, and the motivations behind a young killer.

I’m waiting for the longer version that gives more details and does less selling, but this whole damned movie is undeniably cool. Plus, it’s undeniable cool set to a score by The Chemical Brothers.

If they did a full feature with Jeff Imada, I’ll bet it’s fascinating considering he’s been working for three decades and got his start with Blade Runner.

Can’t wait for this.
