Posted on July 26, 2014 at 3:52 pm by Amanda Andonian


Legendary Pictures unveiled the first look at Michael Mann’s upcoming project, Blackhat. The film will follow the story of an American convict and his Chinese partners as they attempt to track down a network of cybercriminals, a hunt that will take them everywhere from LA to Chicago to Jakarta to Hong Kong. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom, it definitely sounds like something I’d go see!


The official 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.
