Legend and Irrational Man Trailers
If you know me, then you know I'm a huge Tom Hardy fan. Last September he gave a tight-lipped, but magnificent, performance in the slow burner, The Drop. This September Hardy will join forces with Academy Award winning screenwriter, Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), in the true story crime drama, Legend. In a dual-role, Hardy stars as identical twins Ronald and Reginald Kray who violently ran organized crime in London during the 1950s and 1960s. A teaser trailer has been dropped for Legend and, needless to say, I'm very intrigued.
Woody Allen has made a bit of a career resurgence over the last half-decade with adored Oscar-recognized films such as Midnight in Paris and Blue Jasmine. While the writer/director somehow manages to churn out one film a year, which leads to a fair share of clunkers as well, this year's Irrational Man delivers a promising cast. Joaquin Phoenix stars as a cynical philosophy professor who finds a new-found zest for life after he commits an existential act. Emma Stone and Parker Posey co-star in this late-July release.
