In the upcoming Michael Mann thriller Blackhat, everything is about to go to hell in a handbag when global computer systems are compromised by high-level hackers. And the only person that can save the world is a convicted criminal hacker mastermind. Welcome to the action flick of the digital age.

The trailer makes Blackhat look like just that, with Chris Hemsworth playing a brainy Jason Bourne-I-can-save-the-world-with-one-hand type hero who fights with computers but also apparently can actually throw a punch. Maybe the brawniest hacker I've ever seen on screen. As far as how realistic the movie is, well, just watch the trailer. Blackhat hits theaters January 16. [iTunes via Vulture]
