Blackhat: Michael Mann Produces Director's Cut
Michael Mann's hightech thriller Blackhat was pretty much destroyed by critics and audiences ignored it largely, leaving it with a disastrous box office result. But in the retrospectives of 2015, some film fans seemed to like it more than one could have anticipated judging from the mob stomping it before. That's probably due to the remorseless violence and the disillusioning third act that should be reason enough for some to consider watching it in the next years.
All that seems to explain why Michael Mann has produced a Director's Cut of the film that he will show in a retrospective of his work in New York on February 10th, 2016. It is likely that this version will have more differences than the European Cut of the movie that differed from the US version in one scene (see comparison).
Maybe we'll see another Blu-ray release in the future that has this new version on board. It wouldn't be the first time for a Michael Mann film.
