Studio Canal UK has dropped a new trailer for Legend, the upcoming gangster film that sees Tom Hardy play two of London’s most notorious gangsters.
Legend tells of Reggie and Ron Kray, two real-life twins involved in armed robberies, arson, protection rackets, assaults, and murders throughout the 50s and 60s.
This new trailer paints a better picture of the relationship between the brothers – one’s more level-headed, one’s more of a wild card – while showing off just how awesome Tom Hardy is.
Legend, written and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River), hits the U.K. on September 9, the U.S. on October 2, and Australia on October 15.
Synopsis for Legend:
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.
