‘Legend’ Trailer: Tom Hardy and Tom Hardy are Gangster Twins

Posted in The Screening Room by - June 25, 2015

Tom Hardy is one hell of an actor, The Dark Knight Rises notwithstanding, especially in Mad Max: Fury Road and BronsonLegend looks to be another stellar performance from Hardy, along with a technical marvel as he is playing both of the lead roles in the film as the Kray brothers, two London gangsters. It also features Chris Eccleston, my favorite Doctor, as the inspector attempting to take them down. 

From Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River) comes the true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in an amazing double performance. Legend is a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray twins.

Written and directed by Helgeland, the Studiocanal, Working Title and Cross Creek film co-stars Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald and Taron Egerton. Working Title Film’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner produce Legend alongside Chris Clark, Quentin Curtis and Cross Creek Pictures’ Brian Oliver. Universal will release the thriller in the U.S., and Studiocanal will distribute in the U.K., France, Germany and Australia/New Zealand.

Legend opens stateside October 2.
