With the Avengers hitting theaters tonight, it’s easy to get lost in the explosions and spectacle of summer blockbuster movies. However, there is a trailer you have to see.
Legend hits theaters on September 11 and explores the true story of Reggie and Ronnie Kray. The twin brothers were the most notorious gangsters in London during the 50s and 60s.
Both Reggie and Ronnie are brought to life by Tom Hardy. The film is a nice way to cap his summer. You have Tom Hardy in the Mad Max reboot, and then in a classic crime thriller.
Legend is from Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential). He’s also the man behind Mystic River.
Other cast members include Emily Browning, Colin Morgan, Taron Egerton and Christopher Eccleston.
Watching the trailer immediately reminds me of Hardy’s role in the BBC’s Peaky Blinders. If you haven’t seen it, Netflix has your back. Trust me. Once you start, you will blow through the two seasons.
Thankfully, a third is on the way.
