Set inside the world of global cybercrime, Blackhat follows released convict Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth, Rush, Snow White & the Huntsman.). In a not uncommon move, Federal law enforcement recruits a former blackhat hacker, currently in Federal Prison, to aid a war they will launch against a cyber criminal network, operating worldwide from an unknown base somewhere in Asia. It will take them from Los Angeles and Hong Kong to Perak, Malaysia and Jakarta. As Hathaway closes in, and as unanticipated consequences have made it all personal, he discovers the cyber sabotage of a Chinese nuclear power plant was just the beginning. Four-time Academy award nominated Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral) directs the heart-pounding, ripped from the headlines thriller. Also featuring Academy Award nominated Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder,” The Help) as a tough-minded security specialist, Wang Leehom (Lust, Caution, Stan Lee’s upcoming Annihilator) as a Chinese military captain and cyber warfare expert, and Wei Tang (Lust, Caution) as a recruited cyber specialist and Hathaway’s lover.
