Tom Hardy is Reggie and Ronnie Kray in new Legend trailer

A new trailer has appeared online for Legend, in which Tom Hardy turns in what looks to be a remarkable dual-performance as the notorious East End criminals, Reggie and Ronnie Kray.

The new trailer plays up the tension between the two siblings, as Ronnie's reckless violence threatens to derail their burgeoning criminal enterprise. However, as Ronnie puts it, "blood is thicker than water", and fraternal loyalty looks set to overrule common sense at every turn…

Aside from Hardy's obvious brilliance, the rest of the cast also looks a real treat, with Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Taron Egerton, Christopher Eccleston and Chazz Palminteri all on supporting duty. Directed by Brian Helgeland, Legend will open in the UK on 9 September 2015 and the US on 2 October 2015.
