Hanna Blu-ray Release Date and Details

Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced a September 6 release date for the action thriller Hanna starring youthful Saoirse Ronan on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.

Hanna made over $57 million at the worldwide box office back in April off a budget almost half as much. The story about a young girl raised in isolation and trained to be a killer by her special ops father co-stars Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett, Jason Flemyng, Tom Hollander and Olivia Williams.

Hanna on Blu-ray will be presented in 2.35:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Bonus features include as many Blu-ray exclusives as not, making it clearly the version to own.

Blu-ray Exclusives:

  • ADAPT OR DIE: This featurette reveals the intense training and acting process Saoirse Ronan went through to become Hanna.
  • CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE ALLEGORY: The filmmakers and cast reveal their boldly original approach to this adventure thriller.
  • CHEMICAL REACTION: A look at The Chemical Brothers’ creative process of writing and scoring all of the music in the film, as the musicians themselves talk about their unique approach to the task of composition.
  • THE WIDE WORLD OF HANNA: Join the filmmakers as they travel from icy Finland to scorching Morocco and then from empty deserts to post-punk Berlin, finding the perfect locations for HANNA.

The rest:

  • ANATOMY OF A SCENE: THE ESCAPE FROM CAMP G: This feature breaks down the complexities of Hanna’s daring escape, from getting the actors prepped to the special effects it took to make this action-packed sequence.
