The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana, looks promising, in large part thanks to the energetic thrill of the soundtrack (check out “Escape 700” and “The Devil Is In The Beats” for a couple of the dancier tracks). Even if it was basically just a two-hour music video featuring a young girl running and kicking ass set to Chemical Brothers music, we’d probably be okay with that. Think we might get a remix of Hanna like the upcoming TRON: Legacy R3CONFIGUR3D?
The Chemical Brothers also did a number of tracks for Black Swan, which haven’t been given a full proper release (but check out “Don’t Think” below). Will they be playing selections from Hanna at Coachella? Are we reaching an era where masses of thousands will be dancing to a film score? Because that’s pretty incredible. (And hard to imagine happening at any other time in history — did anyone rave to the score from Shakespeare In Love? Probably not.)
The Hanna soundtrack will be available for purchase on iTunes this Tuesday, while the film is due April 8.
