Daft Punk already turned heads with their work on "Tron: Legacy" and Basement Jaxx will have their turn later this summer with "Attack the Block," but just around the corner is "Hanna" and the The Chemical Brothers will be providing the pulsating score.

Soundtrack Hits Early; March 15th Via iTunes



It seems we're at the the tipping point of a full-blown trend of beat-makers taking on the soundtracks for films, and not only that, with Trent Reznor taking home an Oscar last weekend it's gained legitimacy. Daft Punk already turned heads with their work on "Tron: Legacy" and Basement Jaxx will have their turn later this summer with "Attack the Block," but just around the corner is "Hanna" and the The Chemical Brothers will be providing the pulsating score.

Directed by Joe Wright and starring Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hollander, Olivia Williams and Jason Flemyng, the story centers on a 16-year-old (Ronan) who was raised by her father (Bana) to be a coldhearted killing machine and then connects with a French family who look to help ease her into a more conventional life. The music we've heard so far in snatches in the trailers and clips from the film sound great, but we hope that it's woven well into the fabric of the film and doesn't sit awkwardly apart from it. However, it seems like this has the possibility of being an easier disc to thrown on than "Tron: Legacy," which was a bit more cinematically grounded (ie. not exactly danceable). You can check out "Container Park" below which in its under four-minute running time runs between hard beats and some gentle lulls. Nicely done. There are also some supposed leaks floating around which you can listen to here but to our ears they sound incomplete at best or demo versions. They could be entirely fake, too.

The soundtrack will hit early on March 15th through iTunes with the movie landing on April 8th. Check out the full tracklist and song below.
