In Blackhat, the Fate of the World Hangs on the Shoulders of One Hacker

By Leslie Horn on at

In the upcoming Michael Mann thriller Blackhat, everything is about to go to hell in a handbag when global computer systems are compromised by high-level hackers. And the only person that can save the world is a convicted criminal hacker mastermind. Welcome to the action flick of the digital age.

The trailer makes Blackhat look like just that, with Chris Hemsworth playing a brainy Jason Bourne-I-can-save-the-world-with-one-hand type hero who fights with computers but also apparently can actually throw a punch. Maybe the brawniest hacker I've ever seen on screen.

Blackhat will be released in UK cinemas on February 20, 2015. [iTunes via Vulture]
