Chris Hemsworth puts down his mighty Thor hammer and picks up a laptop to play a skilled hacker in the second trailer for Blackhat, following the first trailer released in September. 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. As you can see in this footage, Chris Hemsworth's Nicholas Hathaway goes literally to the ends of the Earth to stop a cyber-attack from happening.
Directed and produced by Michael Mann, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Hemsworth, Wei Tang and Leehom Wang, and it is written by Morgan Davis Foehl and Mann. Legendary's Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni produce alongside Mann, while Alex Garcia and Eric McLeod serve as the executive producers. The film is particularly timely, in the wake of the massive Sony Pictures hack.
