Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, The Soloist and Hanna these are the films of director Joe Wright's career and there is an oddity in that list. Hanna is different to the corsets and massive country estates of Atonement and Pride and Prejudice, it is a massive step in a completely different direction as Wright attempts to create an action thriller and within one attempt he crafts a film that is more enjoyable than anything Michael Bay has ever made. Hanna is a story of a girl attempting to find out her identity, Hanna is also a modern fairytale referencing to stories such as The Brother's Grim.

Jeffrey Jacob 'J. J' Abrams has been very busy of late; he successfully rebooted the Star Trek saga and removed the nerd stereotype associated with Star Trek, creating a film that entertained many audience members. He was the co-creator of Lost which, apparently, is one of the greatest TV programs of the early 21st century (I have not seen it; I don't even know what it is about). So he has been quite a busy man directing mainstream productions such as Mission Impossible 3 and Star Trek. His latest release is a love letter to Steven Spielberg entitled Super 8.
