The Chemical Brothers Compose Score for Thriller "Hanna"

The Chemical Brothers Compose Score For Adventure Thriller Hanna

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."
Listen to the track "Container Park"
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.
