Chris Hemsworth stars in the first trailer for Michael Mann’s Blackhat
Michael Mann is one of several directors whose films always jump to the top of my must-see list. But his last film was 2009’s disappointing PUBLIC ENEMIES. He’s spent his time working on and researching the hacker thriller BLACKHAT with Chris Hemsworth. The first trailer looks pretty slick and features some of Mann’s trademark style. Mann doesn’t have to do much to sell me on a movie, but I like the subject matter and everyone likes Chris Hemsworth, so I’m anxious to see what he has in store for us. The only concern I have is that January release date. That tells me it’s not good enough for an Oscar run and not exciting enough for a summer release.
