Tom Hardy's 'Taboo' lands at FX

18 November 2014 4:18 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

FX has landed American distribution for the BBC One drama "Taboo" starring Tom Hardy. Set to begin production in the UK in mid-to-late 2015, "Taboo" won't actually premiere on FX until mid-2016, which is the kind of long-term planning you have to do when you're dealing with the star of "The Dark Knight Rises," "Bronson" and "Locke." Speaking of "Locke," which earned some of the year's best reviews, "Taboo" was created by "Locke" writer-director Steven Knight ("Dirty Pretty Things"), based on an idea from Hardy and his father Chips Hardy. Hardy will play a "rogue adventurer" named James Keziah Delaney, who returns from Africa with 14 diamonds and a desire to avenge the death of his father. Oh and the series begins in 1813, with Delaney's biggest adversary being none other than the Dutch East India Trading Company. "Taboo" will be produced by Ridley Scott's Scott Free Films and the actor's production shingle Hardy Son & Baker. »

The Drop review

18 November 2014 6:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A crime thriller starring Tom Hardy and a scene-stealing puppy. What more could you want?

It's not without reason that The Drop has so quickly become known as “that movie with Tom Hardy and the puppy.” Based on screenwriter Dennis Lehane's own short story Animal Rescue, the blue collar crime drama aspect of the film is somewhat overshadowed by the metaphors and sweetness of the dog adoption sub-plot.

Overall though, it's still about Hardy as Bob Saginowski, a nice guy in a rough neighbourhood, who tends a friendly local bar owned by his elder cousin Marv (James Gandolfini). But after hours, Cousin Marv's Bar is a drop bar, one of a number of Brooklyn bars that serves as a place of safekeeping for the Chechen mob's ill-gotten funds.

When a pair of young chancers hold up Bob and Marv at closing time one night and only make off with the contents of the till, »

Watch: Video Essay On The Horrific Beauty Of Nicolas Winding Refn's Violent Movies

14 November 2014 9:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If there’s one director to have emerged in the past two decades who treats on-screen violence as both an art form and form of honest brutality, it would be Nicolas Winding Refn. Probably first introduced to U.S. audiences en masse with “Bronson” — which was also a huge break for Tom Hardy — Refn has proven himself a master of things gory, unflinching in his depiction of the horrific acts people commit against one another. Dávid Velenczei edited together four and a half minutes of some of the most violent scenes in Refn’s films for Press Play, and the resultant montage raises questions. Primarily, how should we — consumers, filmgoers, people — respond to such graphic depictions of savagery? Given the range of films, settings, and even time periods depicted in the video, we must cast aside the thought that Refn’s violence is restricted to just one of his films. »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Tom Hardy

13 November 2014 5:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Vertigo Films

In Great Britain, there are plenty of great actors. In the last few years alone, Colin Firth, Christian Bale and Daniel Day Lewis have all walked away from the Academy Awards ceremony with statues in hand. Go back a few more years and you can add the names of Rachel Weisz, Tilda Swinton, Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren to the list of winners, and there’s no sign of the talent pool drying up any time soon.

This week alone, there are two films opening which showcase two of the finest young talents: The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing; and The Drop, in which Tom Hardy appears alongside the late James Gandolfini. Cumberbatch is currently one of the frontrunners to be nominated in the Best Actor category early next year, while Hardy’s low-key performance is apparently engaging but unlikely to see his name feature among the awards contenders. »

Leeds International Film Festival 2014 Review – The Drop (2014)

13 November 2014 3:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Drop, 2014.

Directed by Michaël R. Roskam.

Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini, Matthias Schoenaerts, Elizabeth Rodriguez, James Frecheville and John Ortiz.

Synopsis:

Bob Saginowski just tends bar, keeping himself to himself as gangsters use his bar as ‘The Drop’ to funnel cash between gangs in the course of a night. But when the bar is robbed, he gets caught between good guys, gangsters and a pitbull named Rocco.

The Drop, the screenwriting debut of crime novelist Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River), might not reach the heights of either of those films, but it’s an entertaining, slow burning crime drama, with a great central performance by Tom Hardy.

Set in the bowels of Brooklyn, where there seems to be more bars than stools for folk to sit on, it’s a low key drama, where every character is hiding something shady about their past. But it’s Tom Hardy’s character, »

Nicolas Winding Refn to Helm Horror Movie ‘The Neon Demon’

3 November 2014 3:18 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Many film fans have been waiting to see what project writer/director Nicolas Winding Refn would take on next after bringing the Ryan Gosling-starring flick, Only God Forgives, to the big screen in 2013. At first it looked like the visionary director might tackle a haunted hotel film and then it seemed as if he would helm a movie called I Walk with the Dead, but it’s now been revealed that his next movie is called The Neon Demon.

Plot and casting details are unknown at this time, but filming on The Neon Demon will begin early next year in Los Angeles, satisfying Nicolas Winding Refn’s desire to shoot another movie in the City of Angels (an itch he’s wanted to scratch since shooting 2011’s Drive).

It’s not certain if The Neon Demon is simply a new title for the project known as I Walk with the Dead, »

Drive Director Nicolas Winding Refn Unveils New Horror Film The Neon Demon

3 November 2014 9:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point in his career, Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn and the thriller genre have almost become synonymous. Building upon his work on Bronson and Valhalla Rising, the director struck a chord with the neon-drenched Drive in 2011, before following up with last year’s somewhat divisive Only God Forgives.

Now, Winding Refn is currently developing I Walk With The Dead (described as yet another thriller taking place in Miami) due to release at some point in 2015. But that’s not the only stylish thriller we’ll see from the Danish helmer next year, as Winding Refn has announced his latest project, The Neon Demon.

“One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty,” the director said in a statement.

According to Deadline, the film will be a female-led »

Nicolas Winding Refn Summons ‘The Neon Demon'; Female Horror Pic To Shoot In La: Afm

3 November 2014 8:01 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After “falling madly in love with the electricity of Los Angeles” while making Drive, writer/director Nicolas Winding Refn will return to the City of Angels for his next project, The Neon Demon.

The Danish helmer won the 2011 Best Director prize in Cannes for Drive and his other feature credits include Bronson and Valhalla Rising. He says of The Neon Demon, “One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty.”

Gaumont and Wild Bunch have officially announced Nicolas Winding Refn's new movie, The Neon Demon, a horror tale with a young female driven cast, written by Refn and Mary Laws with principal photography set to begin in the first quarter of 2015, with filming to take place in Los Angeles. About the origin of the movie, Refn said, "One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women.

After making Drive and falling madly in love with the electricity of Los Angeles, I knew I had to return to tell the story of The Neon Demon.

The Callow Way – Drive, Dying of the Light and Hollywood Scandals

26 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at the Hollywood debacle of Nicolas Cage’s upcoming movie Dying of the Light

A few years ago, hot off the back of Bronson and Valhalla Rising, Nicolas Winding Refn was in Hollywood developing a film with Harrison Ford. Disagreements over the ending meant neither Ford nor Winding Refn remained attached the film. The upside was that Ford gave the Dane some very strong pills for the flu he was suffering from. While under the influence of these tablets, he had a meeting with the star of The Notebook and Lars and the Real Girl, and because he was not firing on all cylinders, he ended the meeting early and asked the actor to drive him home. Flicking through radio stations on the drive back to his hotel, Winding Refn said that this is what he wanted to make a film about; a guy driving round La listening to electropop. »

Why Tom Hardy Will Probably Never Make Another Romantic Comedy

14 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tom Hardy is best known for his serious work, be it turning up the drama in features like Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or just turning into a full-blown monster, as seen in movies like Bronson and The Dark Knight Rises. That said, two years ago he decided to branch out with a bit of lighter fare and tried doing a romantic comedy. What's unfortunate is that the experience has sworn him off the genre for the foreseeable future. This bit of knowledge was dropped by Tom Hardy in a recent interview with USA Today during the Toronto International Film Festival, where the actor was promoting his new movie The Drop, based on the novel and adapted by Dennis Lehane. During the conversation, Hardy revealed that he likes challenging himself by taking on projects unlike those he's tried before, but that his experiment doing the 2012 McG film This Means »

Tom Hardy Will ‘Probably’ Never Make Another Romantic Comedy After the Miserable Failure of This Means War

12 September 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Our own David Edelstein called 2012's This Means War "laughless" and "gut-whomping," but that's nothing compared to what Tom Hardy thinks of it. In an interview with USA Today, the pit bull of Hollywood suggests he was so scarred by the film's production that he'll never make another romantic comedy:"I didn't understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it," he says, blaming himself for feeling "other" on set. So consider that box checked. "I probably won't do a romantic comedy again, do you know what I mean?" Bronson, a biopic of the most violent prisoner in Britain, will remain Hardy's most romantic film. »

Tom Hardy Says His Romcom Days Are Firmly Behind Him

12 September 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether it’s fighting prison guards butt naked in Bronson or engaging in a phone conversation for an entire 90 minutes in Stephen Knight’s atypical thriller, Locke, it’s fair to say that Tom Hardy’s acting resume is as diverse as they come. However, looking to the future, it seems as though the British actor’s time in the romantic comedy genre are irrefutably over.

After his role in McG’s critically-derided This Means War — which pitted Hardy against fellow spy Chris Pine for the attention of Reese Witherspoon…yes, really —  it appears his involvement in the 2012 flop was his first and last flirtation with the romcom in general.

Speaking with USA Today, the versatile actor spoke candidly about his mindset going forward:

“I love to do things I hadn’t done before,” said Hardy, before describing his experience making “This Means War.” “I didn’t understand how you »

Tom Hardy Says He'll Never Do Another Romantic Comedy Again Thanks To 'This Means War'

11 September 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tom Hardy's greatest attribute is his willingness to try anything and knock it out of the park. It's hard to believe the same actor who stormed the screen in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Bronson" spent 90 minutes on the phone in Steven Knight's "Locke." This weekend, the actor plays a weary Brooklynite in "The Drop," and on the horizon he's got roles ranging from badass post-apocalyptic warrior in next summer's "Mad Max: Fury Road" to Stalin-era soldier in "Child 44." Hardy mixes genres and characters with ease, but there's one thing you won't see him again anytime soon: a romantic comedy. Coming between "Warrior" and "Lawless," the actor reached for the studio rom-com ring with "This Means War," directed by McG and co-starring Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon. Met with dreadful reviews, the movie actually legged it out to a $150 million worldwide take (thank you international audiences), but was considered a. »

Spotlight on the Stars: Tom Hardy

10 September 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at an up and coming A-lister, someone who’s a big star on his way to becoming an even bigger one. He’s Tom Hardy, an incredibly well respected and intense actor. It’s probably a shock to many that Hardy has yet to be cited with an Academy Award nomination (or even a Golden Globe nomination for that matter), but that speaks to how great the work is already. With another fine performance this year coming to theaters, now seems like a perfect time to take a look at Hardy, so let’s shine a spotlight on him right now! Hardy got his start when he was picked for a role in Band of Brothers, pretty much being plucked out of obscurity. He appeared in two episodes of the miniseries, which marked his debut as an actor. »

Tiff: Tom Hardy on acting with James Gandolfini: 'I just wanted to please him'

8 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

For someone with his immense range and talent, Tom Hardy has been a “one to watch” far too long. Years before he went toe-to-toe with Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises, he made his debut in HBO’s Band of Brothers in 2001, quickly graduated to Star Trek villain in 2002, and won the BAFTA Rising Star Award for Inception in 2011. Earlier this year, he carried an entire film, Locke, in which he just drove a car and talked on the phone.

Next year, all of that oozing charisma and alluring sense of danger that practically vibrates through his characters will »

Film Review: Brutal Coming-of-Rage Prison Drama ‘Starred Up’

5 September 2014 6:33 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Opening this weekend at Chicago’s Facets Cinematheque after a week on VOD is “Starred Up,” a bloody-knuckles British prison drama that was also a favorite at the most recent Chicago Critics Film Festival. This is an at-times beastly movie that follows in the line of previous character-driven jail films like “Chopper” (starring Eric Bana), or Tom Hardy’s raging breakout movie “Bronson”.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

While this movie may not have the narrative muscle of these references, this odyssey into a hidden world does feature two actors well on their way to becoming global obsessions, Jack O’Connell and Ben Mendelsohn.

O’Connell plays Eric Love, a raging teenager dumped into an adult prison to carry out a drug-related sentence. After asserting his power to his fellow inmates with an act of violence (and nearly killing someone albeit unintentionally), he makes a connection with his father Neville (Ben Mendelsohn) who »
