The brand new trailer for the Brian Helgeland’s Legend has just been released, and promises Tom Hardy at his absolute best as the infamous East End gangster twins Ronnie and Reggie Kray.
Legend focuses its attention primarily on Reggie Kray, the more rational of the twins, as he seeks to control SoHo’s criminal underworld, while also controlling the psychotic tendencies of his twin brother Ronnie.
The brand new trailer is an unapologetic, in-your-face force of nature that pulls audiences into the glamour, the violence, and the madness that was London’s East End under the Kray’s savage rule during the 1950s and 1960s. Helgeland both writes and directs, and has packed his cast out with incredible supporting stars including Emily Browning as Frances Shea, the wife of Reggie Kray, Taron Edgarton as Edward ‘Mad Teddy’ Smith, a psychopathic gay man, and the rumored lover of Ronnie Kray, David Thewlis as Leslie Payne, the Krays business manager, with Chazz Palmanteri as Mafia boss Angelo Bruno, and Christopher Eccleston as Leonard ‘Nipper’ Read, a Scotland Yard detective who would bring the Krays down.
Legend appears to be an all out riot, and will enthrall audiences as only the best gangster films can on October 8.
