Anna trailer: Meet Luc Besson’s Russian supermodel turned super-assassin

The sexual allegations surrounding Luc Besson threatened to sideline his new action-thriller Anna for good, until the rape allegation he was accused of was thrown out of court by a French judge in February following a 9 month investigation. There have been several other women who have come out publicly to accuse of him of sexual misconduct, but Lionsgate seem happy enough to push ahead with the marketing for the film. It looks very much like typical Besson action-fare - an attractive female assassin kicking ass - done in the vein of the excellent Nikita and the bonkers Lucy. How it performs at the box office may well depend on the attention people give to Besson’s accusers. Watch the trailer for Anna above to get a first look.

Beneath Anna Poliatova’s striking beauty lies a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill to become one of the world’s most feared government assassins.

Besson also wrote the script, with the cast starring Sasha Luss, Cillian Murphy, Luke Evans and Helen Mirren.

Anna gets a June 21st release date in the US and will appear in UK cinemas later this year.
