A new Michael Mann movie is always a cause for celebration. The man has never made a bad film. Okay, there was Miami Vice, but at least that was interesting bad, well-executed bad. Flawed but fascinating.
We knew he was making a cyberthriller with Chris Hemsworth, but the plot details were being kept under the kind of security that seems to evade most online retailers. But the first trailer just dropped.
Listen, I know this is just a trailer, and at best it only reflects a tiny bit of what the movie is actually about. But…um, okay. So this is Thor the Hacker, bicep-ing his way around the world as a Dangerous Man Who Was In Prison For Hackery But Is The Only Guy For the Job, on the trail of a cyberterrorist who can do awful things with a keyboard. And our hero hacker is totally an expert in martial arts and small-arms combat.
