Tom Hardy Gets a Lot of Phone Calls in the Full US Trailer for 'Locke'
Can Tom Hardy make driving in a car for an hour and a half compelling? If the quotes in this first domestic trailer for the real-time thriller Locke are to be believed, then then answer is affirmative. While the trailer does seem a bit silly since it uses quick cuts to Hardy driving a car from different angles and in various states of distress, it does sounds like his character is dealing with a lot of pressure from several different angles. Taking the isolated setting and single-character style of Buried and adding an actor like Hardy into the mix is what truly makes this seem like a promising film, but we'll find out this spring. Watch!
Here's the US trailer for Steven Knight's Locke, originally from Yahoo:
Locke is written and directed by Steven Knight (director of Hummingbird and writer of Eastern Promises). Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) is an obsessive perfectionist, respected by his coworkers and loved by his bosses. He cherishes the bond he shares with his two sons and the unshakeable partnership he has developed with his wife; it's an ideal existence built with painstaking care. But hours before the biggest day of his career, Locke receives a phone call that threatens to destroy the life he has worked so meticulously to create. Locke premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2013 and A24 Films releases the film in US theaters April 24th.
