Chris Hemsworth Hunts Cybercriminals in First Trailer for 'Blackhat'
"This isn't about money, this isn't about politics." It's been five years since we've gotten a film from Michael Mann, and that was the somewhat disappointing gangster thriller Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp. But now Mann is back with the contemporary thriller Blackhat, set in the timely and relevant world of cybercrime. Chris Hemsworth leads the film as a brilliant convict brought out of prison to help track down a vicious hacker with seemingly no political or financial agenda, who is just willing to completely cripple the world's banking system. There's pretty some cool shots, and it definitely looks like a Michael Mann film, but I'm not entirely sold on the story just yet. Seems a little too familiar. Watch now!
Here's the first trailer for Michael Mann's Blackhat, originally from Apple:
Blackhat is directed by Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral, Public Enemies, Miami Vice, The Insider) who co-wrote the script with first-time screenwriter Morgan Davis Foehl. Set within the world of global cybercrime, the film follows a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta. Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Rush) leads the film with a cast that also includes Viola Davis, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom. Universal Pictures sends the Legendary Pictures production to theaters early next year on January 16th.
