The Living Legend: Tom Hardy
Legend is a new Universal movie coming out in November starring Tom Hardy in a dual role. The movie is based off a true story of identical twin gangsters who ran an organized crime ring in London in the 1960s. The trailer is full of contrasting images of the two twins and their opposite personas. It uses the form of duality in almost every scene to create an overall theme. Legend is a fast paced, sophisticated crime story about family, brotherhood and the balance between aggression and brains that, when yielded correctly, can be a deadly dual force.
Tom Hardy has brought us memorable characters such as Bane from The Dark Knight Rises, Max Rockatansky from Mad Max: Fury Road and Forrest Bondurant from Lawless. He is also co-starring in Birdman's very own Alejandro González Iñárritu new film The Revenant along with the talented Leonardo DiCaprio. I believe that Hardy has proved himself enough for us to get excited about this exciting crime drama. I mean, what's better than a movie starring Tom Hardy? A movie starring him twice!
