We’ve had a phonebooth, even a coffin, there’s even been a film stuck in a back of car in Locke Tom Hardy finds himself driving a car highlighting why he is one of UK’s finest, watch UK Trailer.
Locke is the latest film from Steven Knight (writer of Eastern Promises) whose last film Hummingbird we enjoyed more than some critics so we expect more of the same. The film has been picking up great reviews since it’s world premier last September at Venice Film Festival and on the evidence Mr Hardy possess the magnetism to hold a movie on his own with great ease.
Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) finds himself in a tension fuelled race against time heading to London to be by his wife’s (Ruth Wilson)bedside as she soon will give birth.Ivan’s his older boys (Tom Holland, Bill Milner) are angry their dad wont be with them at a football match back home in Wales, following day he’s on the verge of signing a massive construction deal.
Like the trailer the plot for the film doesn’t give much away, Locke gets a few phone calls that things aren’t as rosy as they seem. The trailer certainly teases in a way you want more as its a tense, moody and when your stuck in one location desperate to get to your destination things will get heated. Check out Tom Hardy‘s Welsh accent it’s a classic!
Locke is one film we’re really looking forward too and we’re that excited that the film is making one more festival appearance before it’s 18th April UK release, Playing Glasgow Film Festival 23rd & 24th February (more info here). The film co-stars Olivia colman, Andrew Scott .
Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) plays Ivan Locke. LOCKE is the story of one man’s life unravelling in a tension-fuelled 90-minute race against time. Ivan Locke has the perfect family, his dream job, and tomorrow should be the crowning moment of his career. But one phone call will force him to make a decision that will put it all on the line.
