Sasha Luss in First Trailer for Luc Besson's Assassin Action Film 'Anna'
"You're next target is in Paris. There'll be no back-up." EuropaCorp has released the first trailer for Anna, the latest action film written & directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson (of The Professional, The Fifth Element, Lucy, and Valerian). Besson gives us yet another badass beautiful assassin film, this time starring Russian supermodel Sasha Luss, making her acting debut. Beneath Anna Poliatova's striking beauty lies a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill to become one of the world's most feared assassins. The cast includes Helen Mirren, Cillian Murphy, Luke Evans, Lera Abova, Alexander Petrov, and Anna Krippa. This looks really cool, with some slick action. And Helen Mirren looks awesome. But it also looks a bit like every other beautiful female assassin film, hopefully there's something that gives it an edge.
Here's the first official trailer (+ alternate French teaser) for Luc Besson's Anna, direct from YouTube:
Beneath Anna Poliatova's striking beauty lies a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill to become one of the world's most feared government assassins. An electrifying thrill ride unfolding with propulsive energy, startling twists and breathtaking action, Anna introduces Sasha Luss in the title role. Anna is both written and directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson, of La Femme Nikita, Léon, The Fifth Element, Angel-A, Adèle Blanc-Sec, The Lady, Lucy, and Valerian most recently. Featuring music by Éric Serra. This has yet to premiere at any film festivals or otherwise. EuropaCorp will release Luc Besson's Anna in theaters starting on June 21st, 2019 coming up this summer. First impression? Looking forward to it?
Luc's happy place.

Loved La Femme Nikita, Léon (The Professional in the U.S.A.) and even Lucy, but Nikita is his best... so when Luc Besson makes these female assassin things or whatever they are I'm at the head of the line. Not so much his other stuff. He also knows how to cast a beautiful, capable woman to play these parts. I loved the trailer...lol...just the trailer makes Atomic Blonde look like 1st grade stuff.

Nikita was pretty good...but I could never really suspend my belief. Parillaud with her toothpick arms, was really not convincing, unlike Linda Hamilton in T2, who really looked the part. I do like Besson's movies, though.

Fair enough. I really liked Parillaud in Nikita and also a few other films she did back in that time frame. Interesting comparison between Linda Hamilton in T2 and Parillaud. Apples and oranges to me, although Hamilton was pretty good. It's almost a comparison between the directors and their styles and their stories. I'm a big appreciator of Cameron. Besson is no Cameron. Cheers!

I can't decide which one I like the most, the black haired or the red one. Although, the blonde, the original, one is not bad either ... Hmm ...

i thought the "woman is an assassin" genre already died out? ......... at least it should have.

Shame Besson hasn't evolved from trash like this in all these years.

Hopefully this movie is really good. Most movies that are based video games on video games are trash. It looks good so far.

This is based on a video game?
