Director Michael Mann has been making a film with Chris Hemsworth, and we know fairly little about it. It is a so-called “cyber-thriller,” and doesn’t even seem to have a firm official title. The IMDB lists it as Cyber, but it dropped that title a while ago. Actor Holt McCannally, who tweeted one of the photos below, refers to it as Black Hat.
The film also stars Viola Davis, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom. Chris Hemsworth called it a “sort of cat-and-mouse international heist-thriller,” while another synopsis says “American and Chinese forces work together on a case of high-level computer hacking.” Regardless, the first images from the film have started to surface. That’s one above, and while we wait for a trailer, which will hopefully arrive soon (and help clarify the title confusion) you can check out another below. Read More »

Now there are rumors of movement, and producers are at least not straying from the idea of an Australian in the lead role. Word is that Chris Hemsworth is being sought to star in the reboot, with Justin Lin as the possible director.
Update: At least half of this rumor is already debunked, as Justin Lin says he’s not doing the movie. More below.

For the last few years, one of the highlights of the Academy Awards night has been what comes after the Academy Awards. Namely, Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscar spoof of Hollywood filmmaking at its grandest. This year was no exception.
After knocking it out of the park two years in a row with Movie: The Movie and its inevitable sequel, he switched gears this year to bring us highfalutin Oscar bait trailers starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ben Kingsley… based on the likes of YouTube classics “David After Dentist,” “Keyboard Cat,” and “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Check ‘em all out after the jump.
