It’s very unusual for Michael Mann to release a featurette prior to a film’s release, and Blackhat has probably had the most pre-marketing of any film I can remember of his, including the highly anticipated Miami Vice some years ago. With little film competition out there, I anticipate it doing really well. The ladies will want to see Chris, and the men will want to take the ladies. Their reward? A Michael Mann film! Can’t wait. The US release is the January 16th, and the UK release is February 20th (my birthday!). As a UK blogger, it sadly means I won’t be able to review it until one month after it’s initial release, which is always the way. Legendary hasn’t called me up yet, to go to a prescreen media event. Wouldn’t that be something?
