Following hot on the heels of Daft Punk, The Chemical Brother are the latest electronic act to have ago at doing a soundtrack for a film. In many respects the Chems probably have a harder job – being that ‘Hanna’ is an adventure thriller set in the world of the CIA and spies.
Alongside Director Joe Wright the duo have created totally original score for the adventure thriller, it 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 what we’ve heard from the soundtrack and seen from the trailer this is shaping up to a great soundtrack and an even better film than Tron. Call it, Bourne: Woman Do It Best. If you will.
Here’s some more info from the press release. “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.”
We’ll be reviewing it sometime next week, the soundtrack that is, were not important enough to get an invite to the film.
