Michael Mann and the studios have embraced the latest trend of releasing B-Roll footage, which gives us an inside look into Blackhat’s ungraded image of the scenes.
A collection of interviews with the cast of Michael Mann’s Blackhat, taken from the red carpet of Blackhat’s glitzy premier.
Enjoy these excellent interviews with the main stars of Blackhat, as well as with a rather shattered looking Michael Mann. Who can blame him? His pre and post production of this movie has been on a huge scale, as has the marketing. Since the excitement and buzz from the US Premier, Blackhat marketing has been in overdrive […]
Several actors on IMDB’s cast listing under Michael Mann’s Blackhat don’t have a character name assigned to them. One is Yorick Van Wageningen, a dutch actor known for his roles in The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, The Chronicles of Riddick and The New World.

This is a transcript of a radio interview with Spencer Garrett, who is one of Michael Mann’s recent go-to actors. Blackhat get’s a decent mention together with some interesting insight into how he views this latest work of Mann’s compared to earlier films.

One of the first images made public from Michael Mann’s Blackhat is of Holt McCallany and Chris Hemsworth sweeping a cargo hold area. A strange choice. Perhaps there is a smidgen of humour or irony in this? If you watch Holt McCallany in the cheesy but entertaining “The Losers”, we see his character in almost […]
Michael Mann credited the influence of his friend Guillermo Del Toro, the Mexican film director, for his first appearance at San Diego’s Comic Con where he was interviewed about his forthcoming movie. Comic Con finally confirms for us the name of Mann’s new film, the long suspected “Black Hat”. Asked about his process of creating […]
It was 1995 when Heat first hit our screens, so it’s baffling why it took so many years to see this superb, unofficial behind the scenes footage of the famous Heat LA Shoot-Out scene to get released on YouTube in only the last 5 months. There are two parts, the first that follows Al Pacino and […]
Celebrating the release of Michael Mann’s Manhunter on BluRay, there have been numerous articles written on this highly regarded cult classic. What appealed to me about this article is that it is a very recent interview with Brian Cox who played Lector, providing additional insight for those either new or familiar with the film. He […]
