The new trailer for Legend has been released today, showcasing Tom Hardy and… Tom Hardy… as the notorious Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie, who dominated the London underworld in the 60s. Hardy is set up for a huge year, and he is quickly climbing to the top of my personal favorites list, so a double dose is something I am eagerly anticipating.
Here is the trailer for Legend:
Legend is directed by Brian Helgeland, who wrote the Oscar Winning adaptation for LA Confidential, and has directed Payback and 42 among others.
The trailer exudes a slick, London noir vibe. And that Roy Orbison song is perfect. As of right now Legend only has a UK release date of September 11, but Tom Hardy may have cemented himself as the breakout star of 2015 by then, after Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters this month.
With the anticipated success of Max, Legend will surely grab a domestic release date before long.
