Luc Besson elevated the female assassin film with his breakout La Femme Nikita in 1990. Since then, the French filmmaker has featured beautiful badass women in movies such as Lucy (starring Scarlett Johansson) and Colombiana (starring Zoe Saldana). His latest movie, Anna, features Russian supermodel Sasha Luss in the title role as a “striking beauty” in more ways than one. Check out the Anna trailer below.
The sexy action-crime thriller (which also stars Helen Mirren, Cillian Murphy, and Luke Evans) had been in limbo after Besson was accused of rape, sexual assault, and harassment by nine women in 2018. Lawsuits filed by Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets actress Sand Van Roy against Besson were closed by the Paris prosecutor’s office in February. Now, Anna has a June 21 release date.
