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 »

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.

"There's a problem - I found another house." Focus Features has debuted a brand new red band trailer for Ciaran Foy's Sinister 2, the sequel to Scott Derrickson's cult horror hit Sinister from 2012. This isn't red band in the conventional sense, but it's red band because it allows them to show you a glimpse of all the crazy, disgusting, weird things that are going to happen in this. The cast includes: Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Tate Ellington, Lucas Jade Zumann, Caden M. Fritz and Jaden Klein; as well as Nicholas King back as the creepy Bughuul. There's some really dark, messed up stuff in here - watch out. Here's the new red band trailer for Ciaran Foy's Sinister 2, originally from Fandango: Sinister 2 is directed by Ciaran Foy (Citadel) and written by C. Robert Cargill (Sinister). Story details are limited, but we know the Blumhouse Productions »

N.B. This article contains Spoilers for Marvel's latest film Avengers: Age of Ultron. If you haven't seen it yet, then do so because it's awesome (also, there's a scene shortly into the end credits, but not at the very end).
This article will not focus on the end credits scene, but rather the ending of the movie itself, which is arguably one of the best scenes. The intention is not to undermine the beginning, middle, and end structure of the film by looking impatiently to the future (because Joss Whedon hates that). The film actually offers great closure to its storyline. Rather, the intention is to analyse the characters and their character dynamics, as put forward by this one final (non-tag) scene in particular.
The first thing to say about this scene is:
Perfect ending is perfect.
It's awesomely comic book-y, as with much of the film, and Alan Silvestri »
Several films have already been made about the Kray brothers, two notorious career criminals who ran a veritable gangster empire in London. This September we'll get another adaptation of their story: Legend, written and directed by Brian Helgeland, and starring Tom Hardy as both of the infamous twins. The film will cover the rise of Ronald and Reginald Kray during the fifties and sixties, and is an adaptation of the book The Progression Of Violence by John Pearson. Helgeland is rightfully famous for writing the script for L.A. Confidential, and directing A Knight's Tale (and at least one-and-a-half version of Payback). With him and Tom Hardy attached to this material, there sure are enough reasons to get excited. Today a teaser trailer landed, and it...

"Me and my brother, we're gonna rule London." Hot on the heels of the intense trailer for the crime drama Black Mass starring Johnny Depp, it looks like Tom Hardy has a great crime thriller of his own on the way too. Legend sees the star of Inception and Mad Max: Fury Road pulling double duty as twin brothers Reggie and Ron Kray, two of London's most notorious gangsters from the 1960s. It's only a teaser trailer, so it mostly just sets the stage for the story, but there's a good indication that this could be a fantastic crime thriller with a tour de force from Hardy on display. Keep an eye out for Taron Egerton in there too. Watch! Here's the first UK teaser trailer for Brian Helgeland's Legend from Studio Canal UK: Legend is written and directed by Brian Helgeland (A Knight's Tale, Payback, 42). Tom Hardy stars »

He's already portrayed one famous British criminal in Bronson, now Tom Hardy is trying his hand at two with Legend, using CGI trickery to step into the shoes of the infamous Kray Twins, Ronnie and Reggie. Directed by Brian Helgeland (A Knight's Tale, and Oscar nominated writer of Mystic River), Legend delves into the twins rise to power in the 60's, a time when they terrorised London with their crime gang The Firm. While the first teaser is just that, it does gives us a great sense of the tone and style of the movie, and gives a look at Hardy's fantastic performance (or is that performances?), able to convey the differences between the two in ingeniously subtle ways. Released: 11th September (Irl/U.K.) »

Because of the anticipation surrounding this film, this review will endeavour to avoid any major specific plot spoilers, instead talking in general terms and about things that have already been revealed in trailers and interviews and so on. However, if you still want to know absolutely as little as possible about the film beforehand, then: a) go see it, it's awesome, and b) there is a scene shortly into the end credits. In any case, consider this article more a quick first reaction than an in-depth thematic analysis.
Writer-director Joss Whedon's The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble, in the UK) was a smash-hit back in 2012 for Marvel. His return to the franchise (which will also be his Avengers swansong), Avengers: Age of Ultron, is a darker, more emotionally resonant sequel (as with The Empire Strikes Back or How to Train Your Dragon 2), while still delivering spectacular superheroic action and an abundance of laugh-out-loud humour. »

"You don't stop evil. You can only protect yourself from it." Last weekend a brief tease of the horror sequel Sinister 2 debuted at WonderCon and showed up online the next day. Well, it turns out that it was just a brief snippet of the full trailer, which has just surfaced online, for the film from Citadel director Ciaran Foy. There's the standard jump scares, but the snuff videos that the ghostly kids show to the young inhabitants of a farmhouse where some grisly murders have happened are what seem to be the creepiest part of this sequel, just like the first film. Also, it looks like Bughuul seems to be more prominent. Watch! Here's the first full trailer for Ciaran Foy's Sinister 2, originally from Fandango: Sinister 2 is directed by Ciaran Foy (Citadel) and written by C. Robert Cargill (Sinister). Story details are limited, but we know »

The sequel to 2012 horror hit "Sinister" just released a new teaser, and what it lacks in length it more than makes up for in creepiness.
The short clip features an ominous warning delivered by a young boy, who says, "Tell anyone, and they'll kill you and your whole family." Who "they" are is unclear, but based on all the screaming that ensues, it doesn't look like anyone should mess with them.
The film stars Shannyn Sossaman ("A Knight's Tale") as a young mother who moves into a rural home with her twin sons. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like the most welcoming environment. (We're getting a serious "Children of the Corn" vibe from some of the neighbors.)
"Sinister 2" hits theaters on August 21.

"Tell anyone, and we'll you and your whole family." This weekend brought WonderCon to Anaheim, and Blumhouse Productions brought their own panel to the convention to show off their forthcoming slate of horror films which includes the found footage thriller The Gallows, the Skype-based slasher Unfriended and the sequels Insidious: Chapter 3 and Sinister 2. We've already seen plenty of the former (check out the latest trailer) but the convention also brought our first brief bit of footage in a short teaser trailer for the sequel from Citadel director Ciaran Foy. It doesn't show much, but that's why it's a teaser after all. Watch! Here's the first teaser trailer for Ciaran Foy's Sinister 2 from Focus Features: Sinister 2 is directed by Ciaran Foy (Citadel) and written by C. Robert Cargill (Sinister).

It's mind-boggling to realize that it has been seven years since Heath Ledger left us. As we celebrate what would have been the Australian actor's 36th birthday today, we are thrown down memory lane. From the number of successful movies Ledger left behind—10 Things I Hate About You, Dark Knight, Brokeback Mountain, A Knight's Tale to name a few—to his charm and unforgettable smile, Heath will continue to live on in our hearts and in the memories of all of those who had the honor of knowing him. So let us remember this fallen star who left us way too soon while celebrating his special day through looking back at his life in pictures. »
This Saturday would have been Heath Ledger's 36th birthday. Heath first hit the Hollywood scene in 1999, stealing hearts and winning fans as Patrick Vernon in 10 Things I Hate About You. From there, the Australian actor became a bona fide heartthrob with roles in The Patriot and A Knight's Tale, and he later entered Oscars territory with his memorable performances in Brokeback Mountain and The Dark Knight. Tragically, Heath passed away in January 2008, but seven years later, he continues to live on through his unforgettable roles. In honor of his birthday, here are 36 ways we'll always remember Heath Ledger. »
