Locke Blu-ray Review

20 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Steven Knight

Starring: Tom Hardy, Olivia Colman, Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott, Ben Daniels, Tom Holland, Bill Milner,

Running Time: 85 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Making Of

There have probably been easier films to pitch than this 90 minute car journey in which Tom Hardy discusses concrete. Although hardly an exciting premise in terms of story, the idea of seeing the powerhouse that is Tom Hardy completely alone on screen for the duration of an entire film is quite an intriguing one. From Steven Knight, the director of Hummingbird, writer of such brilliant films as Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises, as well as being the creator of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Locke is a stripped down exercise in minamalist cinema.

The film sees Hardy as the eponymous Locke, a man in charge of a big building project who decides to attend his one night stand of 7 months ago who is now having their child. »

The BBC's period crime drama series "Peaky Blinders" premiered in the UK last Fall. Cillian Murphy, Sam Neil and Helen McCrory led the gangster family epic set in Birmingham just after World War I, with the title referring to the razor blades gang members would sew into their peaked caps.

Critics praised the series which was created by "Eastern Promises" scribe and "Locke" writer/director Steven Knight. However the show suddenly came to the attention of quite a few people back in February when it was announced that Tom Hardy would play a recurring role on the show's second series.

Now the first trailer for the second series has arrived, sans any Hardy footage, but the network has also released the first official photo of Hardy in character in the new series:

New images of Tom Hardy in Peaky Blinders have been revealed.

The Dark Knight Rises actor will appear in a guest role during the upcoming second series of the BBC Two period drama.

Irish actor Cillian Murphy returns as gang leader Tommy in the BAFTA-winning show set in 1920s post-war Birmingham.

The forthcoming series will see the Shelby family expand their crime empire, while maintaining control over their Midlands heartland.

Hardy's co-star Sophie Rundle described him as "amazing" to Digital Spy earlier this year.

The actress revealed that Hardy worked closely with Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight to put together his character.

The show will return to BBC Two in late 2014.

First Images Of Tom Hardy In BBC Gangster Series 'Peaky Blinders'

20 August 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As you get ready to bid "Boardwalk Empire" farewell this fall, there's another period based gangster drama that could fill the void quite nicely. Getting ready to kick off its second season, BBC's "Peaky Blinders" is coming, and with a big star to boot: Tom Hardy. He'll be joining his "Inception" and "The Dark Knight Rises" co-star Cillian Murphy in the show and the first, bearded pics of Hardy's appearance in the series have arrived. The program is based on the real life gang of the same name from Birmingham who rose to power after World War I. And the Steven Knight ("Locke," hence the Hardy connection) penned series centers on the ambitions of leader Tommy Shelby and the opposition posed by Chief Inspector Chester Campbell. Once again, I have no idea why I haven't made time for this show. But with Hardy onboard, going full grizzly and reportedly playing a bad guy, »

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

20 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

It’s been nearly ten years since we last visited Basin City and some feel that the decade absence has dampened a lot of the hype and interest in its sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But the directing team of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller were not going to let that stop them as they bring perhaps the most popular book from the Sin City cannon to the big screen with some old faces, some new »

Interview: Steven Knight talks directing Locke and working with Tom Hardy

Luke Owen chats with Steven Knight about Locke

Out now on DVD, Flickering Myth Deputy Editor Luke Owen sat down with Steven Knight, writer and director of Locke to talk about the movie, filming in one location and working with Tom Hardy.

Read our review of Locke here.

Lo: How did Locke come about?

Sk: I had just finished making a conventional film and I wondered if there was something else that I could do that would test me. I had been testing camera filming cars for moving theatre backgrounds and I wondered if I could put that on the big screen. I like playing with films and that’s where Locke came from.

Where did the story come from?

Well, first of all I wanted to point that camera at the sort of person who doesn’t get it pointed at. I wanted him to be a regular man. »

'Call of Duty' and 'Skylanders' Movies Coming from Activision Blizzard?

19 August 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Activision Blizzard is reportedly looking to create a movie division to make their own video game adaptations. While this report has not been confirmed, Activision CEO Bobby Kostik is rumored to be in talks with different executives to come on board and run this movie division. However, he is said to also be worried that movies may sour fans against these established video game franchises.

The division will allow the company to make only the movies they see fit, instead of licensing their titles out to various Hollywood studios. If this movie division happens, it's possible that Activision's highly popular Call of Duty video game franchise will come to the big screen for the first time (or maybe even a TV series), along with other properties such as Skylanders and some of the more classic titles such as Pitfall, that could also be developed into feature projects.

DVD Review – Locke (2013)

Locke, 2013

Directed by Steven Knight

Starring Tom HardyOlivia Coleman, Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott, Ben Daniels, Tom Holland, Bill Milner, Danny Webb

Synopsis:

Ivan Locke, a dedicated family man and successful construction manager, receives a phone call on the eve of the biggest challenge of his career that sets in motion a series of events that threaten his careful cultivated existence.

Shot over a couple of weeks, Locke takes place solely in the car of Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) as he makes the choice to drive to a hospital rather than go home to his family as a one night stand has resulted in him becoming a father. Sacrificing his stable and loving life as well as his career, Locke battles with his inner demons in this well-acted drama that is a better concept than it is a movie.

Locke Blu-Ray Review

18 August 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Writer-director Steven Knight clearly enjoys a good challenge. Locke, a mesmerizing drama of uncommon intensity, takes place over the course of one evening, as married construction foreman Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) makes the long drive from Birmingham to London in order to be with his one-time mistress (voiced by Olivia Colman) as she gives birth to his child. Ivan is the only visible character, and Locke‘s sole setpiece is his car, a silent crucible of transformation for Ivan as he makes a series of calls that bring his life crashing down around him.

A self-proclaimed “good man,” Ivan feels that during the drive he must break the news of his affair, and the child, to his wife (voiced by Ruth Wilson), so as not to lie to her about where he’s going. Understandably, she doesn’t take it well. Ivan’s sudden road trip also works to sabotage »

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Tobey Maguire Sign On for Animal Poaching Film

17 August 2014 4:49 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Tobey Maguire got together to bring their passion project to the big screen. That project is an untitled Warner Bros movie about illicit animated trafficking. The trio are on board to produce, but are also in talks to star. The movie is being compared to "Traffic" as it dissects the trafficking industry that exploits the global market for illicit parts from slain animals that are used as aphrodisiacs and other ridiculous purposes. The story will take place around the world, tracing supply and demand for animals slain, stripped and sold for fortunes in places like China. The characters range from corrupt executives, to poachers, to others involved in the underbelly of a global scourge that occurs not only in the jungles but also the oceans, where illegal shark fishing runs rampant. The film is written by Will Staples, who's best known for his work on »

Character description for Arrow’s Ra’s al Ghul

16 August 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the San Diego Comic-Con it was revealed that Ra’s al Ghul will serve as the main bad guy for the upcoming third season of The CW’s Arrow. We’re still waiting on a casting announcement, but a potential character description has emerged online via Reddit, which – if true – suggests that the producers will be taking a cue from Tom Hardy’s Bane when it comes to the depiction of the Demon’s Head. The following allegedly comes from the 50th episode of A, entitled ‘The Magician’, which is currently filming now:

Ra’s al Ghul. Male, 40s-50s. Open ethnicity. Accent preferrred. An iconic villain from the pages of DC Comics. Leader of the League of Assassins. Regal, mysterious, of a bygone era. Proud and unforgiving. Ra’s is a ruthless strategist, a master of martial arts, and a shaper of history. He carries the wisdom of the ages, »

Arrow: Character Description For Season 3's Big Bad - 'Ra's Al Ghul'

16 August 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  CW's Arrow has already given us the Dark Archer (John Barrowman) and Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) as major villains for Season 1 and Season 2 respectively and next season the stakes get even higher when Ra's al Ghul comes to town. You may want to take this news with a grain of salt, but a detailed character description for the casting of the iconic character has been posted on Reddit revealing a few key details of what we might be able to expect to see in the fall. The description is said to come from a breakdown of Episode 4, which is currently shooting and was revealed to be titled "The Magician" a few short days ago. Even though it's a bit of a stretch, could the Demon's Head be the aforementioned magician? You can check out his character description below: Should we expect someone similiar to Tom Hardy's Bane?

Review - 'The Trip To Italy'

15 August 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Four years after taking a foodie road trip around northern England and giving us endlessly spot on celebrity impression after celebrity impression, comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back again playing trumped up versions of themselves, but this time in Italy.

The name basically says it all, and the film itself makes no pretense about it being nearly a carbon copy of the first film with a few details flipped and fudged around. This seemingly redundant method of going about a sequel almost always cripples those second films stupid enough not to acknowledge what was so great about the first installment, and much like this year’s winking and hilarious 22 Jump Street—with its knowing nods and meta-commentary on what it means to do the same damn thing all over again—The Trip to Italy captures what was essential about the first time around and embraces it, making this »

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Tobey Maguire Double Down On Movies About Animal Poaching

15 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Two years ago, we told you about a project teaming up Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Tobey Maguire as producers of a drama about animal trafficking for Warner Bros. The film was inspired by Hardy’s friends, former Special Forces operatives who went on to become anti-poaching fighters in South Africa and other nations where the problem ran rampant. Although that project is still in development with Hardy in the lead, Deadline reports the same three have signed with the same studio to produce another film about the same issue, and they may all star in this one. Scripted by Will Staples, so far best known for writing video games and the as-yet-unmade Mission: Impossible 5, the new project will follow a structure somewhat in the vein of Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic, as in it’s taking a multistory approach to the impact of animal poaching. The film will explore the heinous industry from every facet and angle »

Tom Hardy Playing With Puppies Is the Most Adorable Thing You'll See Today

15 August 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The combination of cute puppies and Tom Hardy's sweet face is enough to make just about anyone weak in the knees. On Wednesday, the actor got cute beyond words with his canine costars on the set of his new project Legend in London. At one point, his furry friend couldn't help but extend his tongue and give Tom a messy kiss. This isn't the first time Tom has mesmerized us with doggy love. Last month, the handsome actor was dressed in a retro costume while he rubbed another happy pup between takes on a park lawn. Tom's interactions with his four-legged costars are somewhat legendary. The actor famously cuddled up with an adorable puppy on the set of Animal Rescue in NYC last March, and he's also taken his love for animals to the small screen with his 2013 documentary, Poaching Wars With Tom Hardy, which had him interacting with African wildlife. »

Eternal 'Expendables:' Mma Fighters Battle to Break Through in Hollywood

15 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of Guardians of the Galaxy's theatrical release, I wrote about the Curse of Tor Johnson, named after the old-school wrestler (and Ed Wood muse) who may have also been responsible for 50 years of terrible performances from professional wrestlers.

Since I wrote for WWE's Monday Night Raw for about six months, I wondered if the presence of Dave Bautista, a former champion, would jinx Guardians' box-office mojo. Three weeks into its theatrical run (and more than $175 million in receipts later), it's safe to say the Curse has been broken. »
