Not one Tom Hardy but two! Two!

by

We were struggling to think of what could be better than one Tom Hardy. Then we saw the trailer for Legend and quickly figured it all out.

Two Tom Hardys! Mystery solved.

Not only is he one of our favourite celebrity dads, but we're not going to say no to twice the screen time dedicated to the star in his latest fim. 

After playing a hero in the recently uber-successful Mad Max with Charlize Theron, Tom, 37, has taken on the role of not one terrifyingly creeping dude, but two.

Taking on the dual role of the Kray brothers, Tom was directed by Brian Helgelund who previously directed L.A Confidential. The film is based on the book by John Pearson.

Legend also stars Emily Browning and Taron Egerton, who has said that Hardy’s performance in the film is “totally amazing”.

Taron plays Edward ‘Mad Teddy’ Smith who is the lover of one of Hardy’s characters.

The film follows the story of Reggie and Ronnie Kray. The brothers were real-life gangsters who ruled London’s gritty crime world in the 1950s and 60s. Reggie is dubbed “the gangster prince of the East End” and Ronnie “a one-man mob”.

The two spent their time rubbing shoulders with celebrities while running nightclubs and taking on some seriously dodgy criminal acts, including murder. Sounds pretty shady.

The trailer has us all kinds of Tom Hardy excited, despite all hell inevitably breaking loose.

We’ll have to satisfy ourselves with keeping the trailer on repeat to keep Hardy-withdrawal symptoms at bay as Legend won’t be released on Irish screens until 11 September.
