Michael Mann and Chris Hemsworth team up!
By Troy-Jeffrey Allen
Directed by Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral) and starring Chris Hemsworth (Rush, Thor), Blackhat takes our existing paranoia concerning cyber criminals and presents it in a nice super-slick action-thriller package.
In the following behind-the-scenes featurette, the filmmakers discuss online interconnectivity and how that potentially opens us all up to cyberattacks with real world ramifications. Given the recent events surrounding North Korea, Lizard Squad, etc., Blackhat may be the most topical film of 2015.
Blackhat hits theaters January 16th.
