'Blackhat' Trailer Turns Thor Into A Computer Hacker

Legendary

The first trailer for Michael Mann's "Blackhat" has finally arrived. Starring Viola Davis, Chris Hemsworth, Holt McCallany, Tang Wei and Leehom Wang, the film's description reads, "'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."

Little was known about "Blackhat" until this year's Comic-Con, when Mann and Hemsworth presented footage from the movie and announced the title. Previously, the project had been referred to as "Untitled Michael Mann Cyber-Thriller."

Based on the official trailer, it's apparent that at least four major banks have been hacked. With any luck Nicholas Hathaway (Hemsworth), a convicted MIT-trained hacker/genius coder, will save the world.

"Blackhat" is due in theaters Jan. 16, 2015.
