Legendary and Universal have released the first trailer for Michael Mann‘s new film, Blackhat.  Chris Hemsworth plays “a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network,” and that brief logline is really all I can tell you after watching this trailer, which is all over the place tonally.  There are crime aspects, but there’s also globe-trotting action spectacle along with “serious” commentary on our digitally interconnected world.  I like how it’s trying to be scary about how “vulnerable” we all are even though that’s just life.

The film opens January 16, 2015, and also stars Viola Davis, Tang Wei, and Wang Leehom.
