Double Dose of Tom Hardy in Trailer for Brian Helgeland's 'Legend'
"London in the 1960s – every one had a story about the Krays. They were twins." StudioCanal UK and Universal has debuted the first trailer for Legend, a story about two twin brother gangsters from London, played by Tom Hardy. Both of ’em! Hardy plays both Ronald Kray and Reginald Kray in a slightly comedic crime story set in London. This seems like stiff competition for Black Mass, another crime saga involving a talented actor playing a legendary mobster. Also in the cast: Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald, Christopher Eccleston and Taron Egerton. Maybe it's just because I'm partial to Tom Hardy, who almost always kick ass, but this looks like a bloody good time! Can't wait to see it.
Here's the first official trailer for Brian Helgeland's Legend, originally from Yahoo:
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 Brian Helgeland, the StudioCanal, Working Title and Cross Creek film co-stars Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald and Taron Egerton. Universal will release Helgeland's Legend in US theaters starting October 2nd in the fall. Visit the official website. Interested?
