But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Imagine for a minute that I'm Jamie Oliver and I have some pointless TV programme about film and dreams and what my dream film would be.

Now forget that and imagine Saoirse Ronan from Atonement holding a gun. That's more like it.

Yes, we've now got the trailer for Joe Wright's thriller, Hanna, and it's safe to say that it's probably something close to my dream movie. It's directed by the guy who did Atonement and it's about a little girl assassin raised "in the wilds of North Finland" (read: the car park behind IKEA) to be a cold hard killer. Not only that, she's raised by Eric Bana. Eric fricking Bana. Mr. Incredible Hulk 1.0.

Needless to say it all looks like a load of twonky old cobblers (Girl on the run! Sinister corporations! Loud music!) but it's twonky old cobblers that involves Cate Blanchett and Tom Hollander doing some of the most ridiculous accents since Russell Crowe tried to play Robin Hood.

Add in the potential for robots/clones/robot clones/cloned robots and it looks like The Soloist's director has found the perfect follow-up to that syrupy nonsense: a mental action film/fairy tale about Hit Girl's Finnish cousin - which Joe Wright himself has said is influenced by David Lynch.

Hanna blows up UK cinemas on Friday 6th May. Read on for the trailer or head this way for the Hanna poster and official synopsis.
