Blackhat Interviews with Chris Hemsworth, Wang Leehom, Viola Davis & Michael Mann
British fans of Thor and Avengers star Chris Hemsworth will be delighted to hear that his latest film, Blackhat, directed by Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral), hits UK cinemas on 20 Februrary 2015!
Blackhat follows convicted hacker Nicholas Hathaway (Hemsworth), furloughed from federal prison, and his American and Chinese partners as they try to identify and hunt down a world-class and dangerous cybercrime network from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, Perak, Malaysia and Jakarta. But the closer Hathaway gets to his target, the more personal the stakes become.
Hemsworth is joined by Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, TV’s How to Get Away With Murder) as Carol Barrett, an FBI special agent charged with assembling the liaison group to track down the cybercriminal; Tang Wei (Lust, Caution) as Chen Lien, a bright, unnervingly candid network engineer who becomes lovers with Hathaway; and Wang Leehom (Lust, Caution, Stan Lee’s upcoming Annihilator) as Captain Chen Dawai, Lien’s brother and Hathaway’s closest friend and former roommate at MIT, as well as the man responsible for his freedom.
