Anna looks like a flashy take on 1990’s Nikita, and it also comes from Luc Besson. The trailer mentions both Leon (aka The Professional) – which was brilliant, and Lucy – which rather lost its way as it went along, even though it had a fantastic premise.
Sasha Luss, who also had a role in Besson’s Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, takes the lead as Anna Poliatova, and beneath her striking beauty lies a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill to become one of the world’s most feared government assassins.
This looks cool and I’ll certainly check it out, but it does rather feel like Atomic Blonde has got there already.
Anna doesn’t yet have a UK release date yet, and the US is “July”, but so far, IMDB is just stating July 10th.
Also stars: Helen Mirren, Luke Evans, Cillian Murphy, Lera Abova, Alexander Petrov, Nikita Pavlenko
