From the red carpet of Michael Mann’s Blackhat 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?

My fellow Michael Mann enthusiast, Fabio Pirovano, posted in 2013 this behind the scenes look at the making of the Keep (well done, Fabio!). but Mann also talks about his other works to that date.
