“Adapt or die” is the tag phrase for Joe Wright’s new high-octane Focus Features flick “Hanna,” starring Saoirse Ronan as a 16-year-old trained assassin on a bloody mission across Europe.
It’s a notion that techno-punk duo The Chemical Brothers took to heart — they’ve just adapted their already-cinematic sound to the movie’s all-original soundtrack, creating a machine-gun-hammering score that’s winning them across-the-board rave reviews.
They’re posting certain tracks for your perusal, as well. You can hear “Escape 700” right now here.
They’ve adapted to the movie-marketing world, too.
With Focus, they’re sponsoring an online contest in America to win a private screening of “Hanna,” with five runners-up winning a CD collection from the group. The deadline is Sunday, April 10, at midnight. They’ll be appearing at Coachella on April 15, but then heading back overseas for festival season, where they’ll even be headlining Glastonbury.
Looks like they’ve adapted pretty well ...
