    Watch: Trying To Kiss A Teenage Assassin Is Dangerous In New U.K. Trailer For 'Hanna'

    We have to admit, the first trailer for Joe Wright's "Hanna" didn't do much for us, not really delivering on the 'Bourne'-esque vibe we were expecting, but the new UK trailer plays much better and points to something perhaps slightly different than the Matt Damon franchise.
