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 »

Check out the movie trailer for Ang Lee’s (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) new film. Adapted from Eileen Chang’s short story by Lee’s Crouching Tiger screenwriter Wang Hui-Ling, Lust, Caution follows a powerful political figure (Tony Leung) in World War II-era Shanghai who enters into a dangerous game of emotional intrigue with an young woman (Tang Wei). Looks very much like some of the war-era films from the 1950s. The film is set to hit theaters in the US on September 28th. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Update: Focus Features has asked that we remove the trailer from /Film because it “was illegally leaked from the studio”. We have removed the trailer at their request..
