First images from Cyber starring Chris Hemsworth; possibly retitled Blackhat

06.04.2014

It was September last year when we last spoke about Michael Mann's cyber-terrorism movie starring Chris Hemsworth which at the time was going by the name CYBER. While we don’t have any official plot details yet, we do have the first unofficial images from the film and a hint of a possible new title.

Hemsworth shared some information about his character and the movie a few months back saying:

“I just finished it. It's based in the world of cyber-terrorism. Basically, something similar to the Chicago Board of Trade is hacked into and it sets off a chain of events around the world, affecting the stock market. And the code that was used to hack into it, my character had written it years before and he happens to be in prison for cyber crime. He is pulled out and offered a deal if he works with a joint task force of the FBI and the Chinese government in trying to track this guy down. It starts off in Chicago and ends up in Kuala Lumpur, in Hong Kong and in Jakarta. It's this sort of cat-and-mouse international heist-thriller."

Whenever there is a Mann movie on the horizon, most of us take notice. You think of a bank heist, you‘re thinking of HEAT.  You think of Tom Cruise as a badass, you’re thinking of COLLATERAL. The man makes memories and moments in his movies that will stand the test of time; let’s hope this next one delivers. Hopefully we’ll get a teaser soon and an official plot, but in the meantime, check out the stills below. They feature Hemsworth and his co-star Holt McCallany.

This one comes courtesy of McCallany’s Twitter account, along with the possible new title of BLACKHAT, but that could also be a working title.

Also starring Viola Davis, Archie Kao, and William Mapother, the film is expected to open January 16, 2015.

Why am I only seeing one still?

The Mann can probably set up a shot better than anyone else alive, he had Aronofsky can go head to head for that title, so any shots that are provided are invaluable.

3 way tie

Double M is my favorite director of all time. Collateral has really grown on me over the years (A Stath cameo) but I can watch Heat, M. Vice, and The Insider any day of the week and love each of them for different reasons, but the one given is it is trademark Mann.

P.S. I finally saw Thief in its entirety a few months ago and can just see where it all began.

Collateral is my favorite in a close race with Heat. I think his most underrated flick is Miami Vice. I really dug it. But I think every movie he makes is money, so I'm there.

Sounds good to me! My favorite is Thief. That movie's got all the ingredients that we've come to associate with MAnn's more polished work, plus a positively incendiary performance by James Caan. The only movie of Mann's I straight-up didn't care for was Miami Vice. I felt like it lacked his trademark character development in favor of plot mechanics.

Don't even care about the plot, just the name Michael Mann and I'm in. Guy has made some of my favorite movies of all time and he's been MIA for too long

Favourite Michael Mann Film - Thief

Heat's a good movie, Collateral is really good, but Thief is the one that has the rawness, brutality and awesome soundtrack that gets me every time I plug the DVD in or hear one of those great Tangerine Dream instrumentals.

Michael Mann? Heck yeah, I'm in. As for the title, Blackhat sounds way more intrigue.

Heat is the best modern day crime drama EVER. Even as the end credits start to roll with that score, so EPIC. That film holds up so well and has the best shootout scene I've ever seen.

It is not a score at the end, it is Moby's "God Moving Over The Face Of Waters."

Blackhat is a way better title; Cyber makes it sound too 90s. Been looking forward to this one, particularly since part of it was shot in Malaysia which is near where I am. Favourite Michael Mann film? Tie between Collateral and Heat. A shame this is getting a January release.

Michael Mann you say? I'm there. I can't seem to get enough of this guy's digital. Except in Public Enemies. That look really couldn't work there.
