31 July 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Author J.K. Rowling and her greatest creation, Harry Potter, both have birthdays today -- July 31. The author already tweeted her thanks to fans, but did you see the sweet birthday messages shared by several "Harry Potter" cast members to Time?

Rowling's big milestone by getting 17 birthday notes from these movie stars: Alan Rickman (Snape), Imelda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Natalia Tena (Tonks), David Thewlis (Lupin), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Clemence Poesy (Fleur), movie director Chris Columbus, Oliver and James Phelps (George and Fred Weasley), Katie Leung (Cho Chang), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood), Frances de la Tour (Madame Olympe Maxime), Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley), and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley).

'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

28 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

Watch: Tom Hardy Looks Great in New International Trailer for 'Legend'

16 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Considering we are just over two months away from seeing what Tom Hardy is able to do on screen as twin gangsters Reggie and Ron Kray in writer-director Brian Helgeland's latest project Legend, I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen more from the film at this point in terms of trailers and clips and the like, but that changes a bit today as StudioCanal -- which is distributing the film internationally -- has just debuted a new trailer for what I hope is more than just a run-of-the-mill gangster tale. Legend tells the true story of the rise and fall of the Kray twins, London's most notorious gangsters, both of whom are portrayed by Hardy in the film. Co-starring Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston and Taron Egerton, it is described as a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events »

Watch: UK Trailer for Brian Helgeland's 'Legend' Starring Tom Hardy

16 July 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"A shoot out, right, is a shoot out! Like a western!" StudioCanal UK has debuted a brand new UK trailer for Brian Helgeland's Legend, starring Tom Hardy (twice!) as the Kray Brothers, two of London's most notorious gangster criminals. We've featured a couple of different trailers before, but I'm fine with another one because this looks so damn good, and Tom Hardy is always at the top of his game. Especially playing against himself, like he often is in this movie. The cast includes Taron Egerton, Emily Browning, Colin Morgan, Christopher Eccleston & David Thewlis. I'm very much looking forward to this even though the trailer gets a bit choppy in the second half. I've got a good feeling Brian Helgeland has made another hit. Here's the newest UK trailer for Brian Helgeland's Legend, originally from StudioCanal UK: From Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River »

Latest Legend Trailer Sees Tom Hardy Rule Over London As The Infamous Kray Twins

16 July 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before Ronald and Reginald Kray were sentenced to prison in 1969, the hardboiled siblings ruled over London’s infamous West End, were they operated a water-tight crime ring out from a high-end club. It was during this time that the Kray twins were feared by all, and held a marked influence over the city’s criminal underbelly. Documented in John Pearson’s acclaimed novel The Progression Of Violence, it proved to be a meteoric rise to infamy followed by the inevitable fall when the pair were caught at the tail-end of the decade.

But for Brian Helgeland’s upcoming crime drama, Legend, Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy will play both brothers while they were operating on the top of the proverbial food chain.

In preparation for the dual role, the esteemed actor would drop in and out of each character, portraying Ronnie one day before transitioning into Reggie the next. »

Legend, starring Tom Hardy - brand new trailer

16 July 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Hardy plays British gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray in Brian Helgeland's Legend. Here's the new trailer...

Tom Hardy's no secret to playing real-life criminals with a violent streak - in fact, some of his most compelling performances can be found in the 2007 TV drama Stuart: A Life Backwards and Nicolas Winding Refn's knockout movie, Bronson.

In Legend, directed by Brian Helgeland, Hardy gets to stretch his abilities further. He plays the infamous Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie, a pair of gangsters whose exploits in 60s London made them into celebrities. Each character showcases a different side of the actor's talent: the slick, witty Reggie is the more dapper of the pair, while Ronnie's prone to wild flights of fantasy and horrifying outbursts of violence.

Among the superb cast you'll also find Emily Browning, Colin Morgan, Christopher Eccleston, David Thewlis and Taron Egerton.

Watch: Tom Hardy And Tom Hardy Go Gangster In New Trailer For 'Legend'

16 July 2015 4:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

2015 will afford us to see a study in contrasts when it comes to actor Tom Hardy. This spring, we saw him nearly mute and wild-eyed in "Mad Max: Fury Road," and this fall he goes in the complete opposite direction, cool and controlled with presumably much more to say, taking the two lead roles in "Legend." And a brand new trailer has landed for the flick. “L.A. Confidential” writer and “42” director Brian Helgeland goes behind the camera, telling the true life story of London's notorious Kray brothers who made dangerous mark on the city during the 1950s and 1960s. It's a colorful time for a couple of colorful characters and we're eager to get two Hardys for the price of one. Emily Browning, Taron Egerton, Christopher Eccleston, Paul Anderson, David Thewlis, Chazz Palmenteri and Colin Morgan co-star in the film which opens on October 2nd. Watch below. »

Exclusive New Poster For Tom Hardy's Legend

1 July 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Why play one role when you can play two? In the next demonstration of Tom Hardy’s formidable acting prowess, the Londoner plays not one but two Kray brothers in Legend. The film's stylish new poster, making its world premiere here, eschews its stars handsome visage (in either of his guises) and plumps instead for a smartly illustrative approach. Click on it for a closer look.For a time in the ‘50s and ‘60s, Ronnie and Reggie Kray ruled East London with fists, pistols and pure, simple intimidation.

'Legend' Trailer Pours Double Shot of Tom Hardy as Gangster Twins

26 June 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you've ever wanted to see Tom Hardy kick his own arse, "Legend" is the movie for you.

This British crime drama from Brian Helgeland (who wrote "L.A. Confidential") follows the Kray twins, who ruled the London underworld in the 1960s. As the new trailer explains, courtesy of Emily Browning, "Reggie was the gangster prince of the East End," and "Ron Kray was a one-man mob." Reggie and Ronnie are both played by Tom Hardy, and "Legend" shows how they became legends, but also clashed with their different styles. You can watch them throw punches at each other (that must've been fun to shoot) right here:

"Legend" also stars David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald, and Taron Egerton and it's scheduled for an October 2 release.

Watch the trailer.

Watch Tom Hardy Beat Himself Up as Both Kray Brothers in ‘Legend’ Trailer

25 June 2015 6:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The only thing better than having Tom Hardy in your film is having two Tom Hardys in your film — or at least that seems to be the strategy that writer-director Brian Helgeland is employing for his new gangster movie “Legend,” which tells the story of notorious London mobsters Reggie and Ronnie Kray.

Hardy plays both Kray brothers in the period drama, and the first trailer showcases the “Mad Max” star’s dual performances, culminating in a brawl between the identical twins.

Reggie Kray is described as “the gangster prince of the East End,” and looks like the brains of the operation, while brother Ronnie is the brawn — otherwise known as “a violent, paranoid schizophrenic” with a taste for other men.

The film also stars Emily Browning, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, David Thewlis and Christopher Eccleston. Universal will release the thriller in the U.S., and Studiocanal will distribute in the U. »

Lady Macbeth's treachery abounds in Michael Fassbender's new Macbeth trailer

25 June 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Treachery abounds in a violent new trailer for Michael Fassbender's Macbeth.

After a previous promo video focused mainly on the famed Scottish warrior, Marion Cotillard's scheming Lady Macbeth comes to the forefront in an extended teaser.

Snowtown director Justin Kurzel's adaptation of William Shakespeare's immortal play casts Fassbender as the noble warrior.

Manipulated by his wife to overthrow the king and driven by his own lust for power, Macbeth lives with constant doubts about who he can trust and how long his own reign will last.

The swords are drawn as bloodthirsty Michael Fassbender goes to war in new Macbeth clip

This version of Macbeth casts David Thewlis as the besieged King Duncan, Sean Harris as the heroic Macduff and Elizabeth Debicki as Macduff's wife.

Kurzel shot his version of the play on location throughout England and Scotland last year.

Macbeth opens on October 2 in the UK. »

Watch Tom Hardy punch himself in the face in trailer for Legend

25 June 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury RoadThe Dark Knight Rises) pulls double duty as twin British gangsters Reggie and Ronnie Kray in this October’s LegendGod Help the Girl’s Emily Browning, the love interest of the non-bespectacled brother, helpfully explains in the new trailer that the “gangster prince” and “one-man mob” terrorized London in the 1960s, grabbing the attention of the American mob, the London underground, and enough police officers to populate P.E.I.

 

While we’re – of course – incredibly excited to see Tom Hardy play both partners-in-crime, the supporting cast of Legend is a who’s who of some of our favourite underappreciated British actors. Harry Potter’s David Thewlis, who should be in everything, “Doctor Who”’s Christopher Eccleston, and Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) also co-star.

Legend is directed by Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, 42) and hits select theatres on October 2.

Double Dose of Tom Hardy in Trailer for Brian Helgeland's 'Legend'

25 June 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"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 »
