For anyone who just doesn't get what Michael Mann's latest cyber thriller Blackhat is all about, an extensive seven minute featurette has arrived to lay out the plot, all the characters, go behind the scenes of the film, chat with the cast, and even give you some insight into cyber-hacking itself. Chris Hemsworth stars in the film as a cyber criminal teamed up with American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta. The featurette doesn't do much to make this look any less formulaic, but maybe with Mann at the helm this could be something good still.

Here's the featurette for Michael Mann's Blackhat from Legendary Pictures:

You can still watch the second theatrical trailer for Blackhat right here.

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.

After b­eing fir­ed from my job half year ago, i have had luck to learn about this ama­zing site which was a life-saver for me... They offer internet jobs for people to freelance from their homes. Last payment after working with themfor threemonths was 12000 dollars... Amazing thing about it was that only thing required is basic typing skills and a stable internet connection...Try it yourself to know more>>>

so Hemsworth's character isnt only a hacker but has some sort of special forces/police, etc training is what I can gather from the trailers.
