    Joe Wright Says He Tried To Call Paul Greengrass For Advice On How To Shoot Action For 'Hanna'

    At first glance, it's hard to believe that the upcoming teenage assassin flick "Hanna" is from the same director who brought you "Atonement," "Pride & Prejudice" and "The Soloist."

    'Hanna' Director Joe Wright Calls "Bullshit" On 'Sucker Punch's Faux Feminism

    One of the many things that we took particular umbrage with in reviewing Zack Snyder’s unerringly nasty, totally boring “Sucker Punch,” was its horrible gender politics. Keep in mind that this is a movie in which a bunch of young girls, to escape the psychic and physical pain of getting regularly ra...
