Luc Besson's Anna Gets First Trailer

Kirsten Howard Alec Bojalad Apr 10, 2019

Luc Besson's delayed thriller, Anna, is set to be released in the summer.

Anna, Luc Besson's first film since Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, is finally set to be released in the summer, after Lionsgate put the film on hold last year.

Starring Sasha Luss, who also had a small part in Valerian as Princess Lïhio-Minaa of the planet Mül, Anna is about a top model who becomes an assassin, and this project feels like a rather familiar Besson-y crime thriller. It's also a lot smaller in scale than Valerian, which is unsurprising. Although that film made $225 million globally, it was considered a commercial failure due to the high cost of its production and advertising.

Anna was initially delayed after French director Besson was accused of sexual assault and harassment by nine woman, with one going to the police to say

During past seasons Shelby – played by Cillian Murphy – has been shown to be a savage killer, damaged by his experiences in World War I. “[Season 7] will tell a different story, where Tommy Shelby – who begins as this nihilistic, looking-out only for his family person – will be redeemed, and he will become good,” Knight revealed. “I want to take him on that journey from the person we saw [in Season 1], to the person he will become in 1939.”
