Hannibal is the 2001 sequel to The Silence of the Lambs and features the return of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) and FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling (in this film portrayed by Julianne Moore). Adapted from the Thomas Harris novel, the film was directed by Ridley Scott, who also directed Black Hawk Down in the same year that Hannibal was released. Hopkins would reprise his Lector role a third time in 2002's Red Dragon.
The following weapons were used in the film Hannibal:
FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore) uses a SIG Sauer P226 9mm as her chief on duty firearm. It is predominately featured in the opening fish market shootout. At the time, the P226 9mm was the standard issue for the FBI. In the novel, Special Agent Starling carried a Colt 1911 Government Model with a strip of skateboard grip-tape around the grip in a Yaqui holster on her hip, telling DC Metro Detective Bolton that she carried it condition one every minute of the day. She kept the weapon for most of the book, even after a lawyer claimed she was not cleared to carry a M1911 variant on duty.
After her FBI-issued SIG-Sauer P226 is confiscated, Clarice (Julianne Moore) uses her personal Glock 17 throughout the rest of the film. She takes it out of her closet after she receives a message from Dr. Lecter. She uses it to kill Verger's men who were trying to kill Lecter before she is wounded in shoulder. Lecter picks the gun up but never uses it, and he leaves it unloaded for her on a table in Paul Krendler's vacation house. The Glock 22 is currently standard issue with the FBI. In the novel, after being dismissed from duty with the FBI, Agent Starling took a Colt M1911A1 .45 and a custom compact M1911 that had been left to her by her friend and former Interservice Pistol Challenge instructor DEA Agent John Brigham after his death in the opening shootout.
Clarice's SIG-Sauer 226 briefly changes to a Glock 26 when she hands it over after she is suspended.
Smith & Wesson Model 65
In the alternate ending of the movie, Clarice (Julianne Moore) runs outside with a 3" barreled Smith & Wesson Model 65 as the police converge upon the house. It was probably a gun that Paul Krendler (Ray Liotta) had in the house, but it's surprising that she obtained it, considering that Lecter had the foresight to leave her Glock unloaded.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
FBI HRT members are seen waiting in a van armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3's.
Evelda Drumgo (Hazelle Goodman) uses a Cobray M11, which stands in for a MAC-10 described in the novel, to fire at Clarice (Julianne Moore) during the fish market shootout. Clarice later identifies it as a MAC-10
An Intratec TEC-DC9 is seen fired by Drumgo's guards during the opening shootout.
Mossberg 500 Cruiser
A Mossberg 500 Cruiser is seen fired by Drumgo's guards during the opening shootout.
