Venice Reviews: Is Tom Hardy Bad or Brilliant As Twin Mobsters in 'Legend'?

2 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Despite his intermittently superb turn as identical twins Ronald and Reggie Kray, larger-than-life gangsters who rose to infamy in 1960s London, Tom Hardy can't save writer/director Brian Helgeland's "Legend" from its unwieldy, strangely glossy construction. Critics are split on the actor's dual portrait, but most agree that the underlying problem is the clash between the overcooked direction and half-baked script. Helgeland ("L.A. Confidential," "Mystic River") plays up the Swinging Sixties vibe—the Kray brothers rubbed shoulders with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland via their West End nightclub—but the comic-book aesthetic struggles to bridge the divide between Reggie, the straight tough, and Ronnie, a psychotic, violent gay playboy. The film's narrator, Reggie's wife, Frances (Emily Browning), offers a side door into the story, but this is, as Variety critic Guy Lodge notes, a "compromised" strategy: "Legend" employs »

Laura Linney to star opposite Hanks in Eastwood’s latest

18 August 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The always reliable Laura Linney is looking set to join the ever reliable Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood‘s latest effort, Sully. Eastwood‘s follow-up to the critically acclaimed American Sniper will be another true life biopic of an American Hero, this time in the form of Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, a pilot who safely landed a commercial flight in the Hudson River back in 2009 after some malicious geese with a thirst for human blood collided with the plane. Sully’s actions saved every passenger on board.

Hanks is to play the role of Sully, while Linney is intended to play the part of his wife. Aaron Eckhart will play Sully’s co-pilot. Linney has worked twice with Eastwood before, on Absolute Power and Mystic River. Linney is also keeping her career varied and interesting, having just received plaudits for Mr. Holmes and following that up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. »

Laura Linney is set to join Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood's Captain Sully movie

18 August 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Laura Linney is set to join Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood's movie about Captain Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger.

It will be her third team up with director Eastwood, following previous turns in Mystic River and Absolute Power.

According to Deadline, she will star as the wife of Hanks's Captain Sully, who famously landed Us Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in 2009, after the jet engines failed from multiple bird strikes.

The emergency landing became known as the 'Miracle on the Hudson', as none of the 155 passengers or crew were fatally injured.

Sully will be based on the book Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters, by Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow.

Aaron Eckhart will also star in the drama as the co-pilot who helped Sullenberger as he negotiated the treacherous landing.

Eastwood is directing the biopic alongside Todd Komarnicki, who has devised the screenplay, as well as Frank Marshall »

Captain Sully is set for release in 2016, and also stars Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) as Sully’s co-pilot.

Kevin Bacon’s Cop Car Coming To Blu-Ray And DVD September 29, 2015

10 August 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A corrupt small-town sheriff is on the hunt for two runaway kids who took his car on a joy ride in Cop Car, an unnervingly funny thriller now available on Digital HD and On Demand, and debuting on Blu-ray and DVD on September 29, 2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Starring Golden Globe-winner Kevin Bacon (Footloose, Mystic River) and directed by Jon Watts (the upcoming Untitled Spiderman Reboot), Cop Car is “A midnight movie blast!” according to Russ Fischer of Slashfilm.

When a pair of 10-year-olds find an abandoned cop car in a field and take it for a joyride, it seems like they could kill themselves at any moment. But things only get worse when the small-town sheriff goes looking for his missing car—and the illicit cargo he left in the trunk—and the kids find themselves at the center of a deadly game of cat and mouse they don’t understand. »

Cop Car’s Kevin Bacon Wants You To Join The Free The Bacon Movement

4 August 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Cop Car star Kevin Bacon has a bone to pick with you, Hollywood. Male actors are rarely given the opportunity to be gratuitously naked, and it’s not fair.

But that’s all going to change now with the #FreeTheBacon movement.

Find out how you can help in this funny video and join the movement.

(Mashable)

Kevin Bacon (The Following, HBO’s Taking Chance, Mystic River) stars in director Jon Watts’ delightful throwback thriller Cop Car.

When two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) stumble across an abandoned cop car hidden in a secluded glade they decide to take it for a quick joyride. Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the county sheriff (Bacon) and leads to brutal consequences.

The film also stars Shea Whigham, James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Welford and Camryn Manheim.

Cop Car opens in theatres August 7, 2015 and On Demand and Digital HD August »

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 »

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.
