How do you make a movie about a guy driving a car for an hour, talking on his cell phone, compelling? Well, you get Tom Hardy to lead and Steven Knight to write and direct it, and if you're lucky enough, you wind up with something like "Locke."

How do you make a movie about a guy driving a car for an hour, talking on his cell phone, compelling? Well, you get Tom Hardy to lead and Steven Knight to write and direct it, and if you're lucky enough, you wind up with something like "Locke."

Minimal perhaps, but that doesn't make the drama any less potent for this one, following the trials of a single man on a drive from Birmingham to London, putting his life in order with nothing more than determination and a mobile. And while Hardy is the only one on screen, that doesn't mean the star wattage ends there, with Olivia Colman, Ruth Wilson, Tom Holland, Bill Milner, Ben Daniels and Andrew Scott all lending their support in voice roles on the other end of the line. And it adds up to quite a package with our review calling it, "a very impressive film."

"Locke" opens on April 25th. Watch the new trailer below.
