You've probably already seen the commercials for BLACKHAT, Michael Mann's high-octane action film starring Chris Hemsworth, and have asked yourself... what is this film event about? It's obviously not important, as the clips only show Hemsworth running really fast and flashing his ever-so-charming smile. Does it even need to be about anything else?
But apparently there is a plot. Oh, and Viola Davis (as well as a few other international stars). More after the jump:
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.
Davis stars as a FBI special agent, and of course Hemsworth is the furloughed convict. I can't really understand why Mann would direct a film that looks so amazingly basic, but hopefully there's more to it than it looks. Check out a few new images from the film:
BLACKHAT is in theaters January 16th.
