To date, the trailers for Brian Helgeland's LEGEND have made the film look like a period gangster drama along the lines of GOODFELLAS. But, what the marketing hasn't shown us is just how funny the movie is going to be. You read that right, LEGEND looks like a great dark comedy with Tom Hardy truly showing some of the blackest humor since BRONSON.

Based on the true story of the Kray Twins, LEGEND makes great use of CGI technology to put two Tom Hardy's on screen simultaneously and, as this new trailer shows, even have them come to blows. We also learn a lot more about the real history of the siblings and how a rift developed between Reggie's desire to live life with his young bride, played by Emily Browning, and Ronnie's penchant for violence.

The movie has quite the cast that also includes nearly unrecognizable turns by David Thewlis and Christopher Eccleston for what is sure to be a very enjoyable movie. Brian Helgeland has always delivered a good balance of crime and punishment going back to his movies like L.A. CONFIDENTIAL and PAYBACK. LEGEND will hopefully signal a return for the director to the top.

LEGEND opens in domestic theaters on October 2nd.

This movie looks great! I agree with MickLoud, Tom Hardy is just killing it these days.

Been aware of this movie for a while, but never seen a trailer (not sure why). Guess this is a good first trailer to see for the movie because it's got me anticipating it's release. Tom Hardy can officially do no wrong for me.

While this is mostly the same footage in the last trailer, I don't know if it's the soundtrack, but this is the one that really got me onboard. I like Brian Helgeland a lot, but there's a reason he's always mentioned as the screenwriter of L.A. Confidential and Mystic River. They're still the best things he's done.

Recently rewatched L.A. Confidental, didn't hold up well for me. I prefer Payback way more, fun little flick.

Payback is a more FUN movie. I stop short of calling it superior. As a fan of Ellroy's book, I admit I've never been completely okay with the changes made. But they were logistical changes, and I still think he did a masterful job of adapting Ellroy's work.

Most people share your opinion but I still think it's one of those movies that was once hyped as being stellar but in reality doesn't really live up to that hype. Oh, well, opinions...

Its a shame that they don't put 'From the Screenwriter of Nightmare on Elm Street 4 & 976-Evil' That would put asses in the seats.
