The Drop
The only thing you probably need to know about this movie is that is has Tom Hardy and a puppy. Okay, it also has the late James Gandolfini in one of his final roles, the always compelling Noomi Rapace, and the rock solid Matthias Schoenaerts, but we'd suggest to Fox Searchlight that there's still time to change the name of "The Drop" to "Tom Hardy Puppy Party." Just sayin'...

Tom Hardy, Legend
Tom Hardy is hardly an actor who shies from a challenge. He's bulked up, lost weight, done an entire role muffled under a mask in "The Dark Knight Rises", tried to revive the cardigan in "Lawless," done an entire movie in a car in "Locke," and tried to save "This Means War" from being an irredeemable pile of shit. Coming up, he'll be donning a Russian accent for "Child 44," and an Australian one for "Mad Max: Fury Road," and playing Elton John in 'Rocketman," but he just started filming today on "Legend," which might be his greatest task yet.

Tom Hardy, Inception
her decision to take on the hit Fox sitcom "New Girl." “I was always wary about doing television, just because you have to play the same character for a long period of time. Being a producer gave me the confidence to know that it would be a dialogue, and I wouldn’t just be told what to do.” And she's not the only actor seeing creative value in small screen endeavours.

Well, they aren’t aiming low. Marvel recently hired “Sinister” director Scott Derrickson to direct their adaptation of Marvel Phase 3 character “Dr. Strange,” and apparently they’re moving full speed ahead with the search for actors (guys, what’s with all the Marvel news this late on a Friday?)

Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio, THE REVENANT
While we still don't really know what happened after the smash cut at the end of "Inception," if these latest rumors are correct, two bros that featured in Christopher Nolan's film are going to reteam—the key word being "if."

Tom Hardy, Bigelow
We’re wiped out from the influx of Cannes-related news, so don’t sue us, and please forgive the immense brevity. Annapurna Pictures is going to produce “The True American,” which has Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises," "Lawless") attached to star and Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty") attached to direct. Hell yes.

Locke
Tom Hardy has defined his career by playing very distinct and willfully hard-as-nails men. His breakthrough came in portraying a sociopathic prison inmate in “Bronson,” then came a flamboyant dream criminal in “Inception,” a taciturn bootlegger in “Lawless,” an intractable UFC pugilist in “Warrior,” a dogmatic terrorist in “The Dark Knight Rises” and he’s about to play the iconic wasteland traveler that Mel Gibson made famous in “Mad Max: Fury Road” next year.

Locke Tom Hardy
Of all the genres, the single location film is perhaps one of the hardest to get right. For one, you need a hell of an actor (or actors) to hold the attention for even the briefest of running times. You also need a story that coherently keeps the actors in place, with enough of a hook to keep you involved. And you need to keep things visually interesting enough to stop it being too static without being showy. It’s a big ask, Hitchcock was the master of the style, and there are a select few other examples, but most turn out poorly.

Mad Max: Fury Road
Shooting on George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” began in the summer of 2012 and the film isn’t coming out until summer 2015. That’s, ahem, a long frickin’ road to a movie (as well as one that opens only two weeks after “Avengers: Age of Ultron”). By all accounts it is an expensive and highly ambitious picture, utilizing a lot of practical effects, cars and stunts and little CGI.

feature, 10 One-Man-Show Movies
If there's any justice in the world, many of you will spend 85 minutes of your upcoming weekend in a car with Tom Hardy. "Locke," the formally-rigorous, real-time Steven-Knight-directed film opens on Friday, and it's terrific: a taut drama that unfolds like a thriller despite being a small, detail-specific, domestic story; and an absorbing Richard Burton-inflected showcase for its sole onscreen star. Hardy, aided by the offscreen voices of Olivia Colman, Andrew Scott and others via his handsfree phone ( the way Knight organized the calls, so that they came to Hardy "live" is fascinating) is just brilliant, crucially underplaying most of the time, as though aware that with only him onscreen (also immobile), the tiniest tic is magnified exponentially. It's the kind of tour de force that highlights by contrast just where so many other single-actor films go wrong.
