In the wake of Sony Pictures dealing with the fallout from the raid on its computer and the subsequent leaking of huge amounts of confidential information, Blackhat feels like a very timely movie for Hollywood. A new trailer has been released so we can get a better feel fro Chris Hemsworth’s trip into cyber attack territory.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Set within the world of global cybercrime, Legendary’s Blackhat 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.
‘Directed and produced by Michael Mann, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom, and it is written by Morgan Davis Foehl and Mann. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni produce alongside Mann, while Alex Garcia and Eric McLeod serve as the executive producers.’
The film is due out in the UK February 20th, 2015.
