Following on from the music-backed teaser trailer the other month, the new full trailer has arrived for Brian Helgeland’s gangster drama “Legend”. Quite different in tone, the new trailer plays up a film which seems much more comedic than the earlier trailer let on which may or may not appeal to all.
The story deals with the twin British gangsters Reggie and Ronnie Kray, both played by Tom Hardy, who ruled London’s underworld in the 1950s and 1960s. Specifically though, the trailer plays up Ronnie’s psychological problems for laughs (he was a violently tempered paranoid schizophrenic) along with the brotherly bond of the duo.
Emily Browning, Taron Egerton, Christopher Eccleston, Paul Anderson, David Thewlis, Chazz Palmenteri and Colin Morgan also star in the film which opens States-side on October 2nd.
