Proving that whatever two Kemp brothers can do, one Tom Hardy can do better, a new trailer for Brain Helgeland’s Legend is now online.

Based on the story of the notorious identical twin gangsters who were the face of organised crime in the East End of London during the ’50s and ’60s, Tom Hardy stars as both Ronnie and Reggie Kray.

Featuring astute period detail and lavish cinematography from the great Dick Pope (Mr. Turner), writer and director Helgeland is on familiar ground, having won an Oscar for penning the adaptation of the seminal crime saga L.A. Confidential many years back.

Check out the brand new trailer below:

Joining Hardy is a veritable who’s who of both veteran and new British acting talent including Christopher Eccleston, David Thewlis, Merlin star Colin Morgan and Kingsman newcomer Taron Egerton.

Legend is released on September 11 this year.
