2012 has been quite a year for eccentric performances. Matthew McConaughey in 'Magic Mike,' Michael Shannon in 'Premium Rush,' Rep. Todd Akin on the campaign trail. . .but the winner of this year's Walken/Cage prize surely has to go to the relative newcomer to the A-list Tom Hardy. Between his masked anarchist Bane in 'The Dark Knight Rises' and his authority-resistant bag of muscles, Forrest Bondurant, in John Hilcoat's 'Lawless,' Hardy has delivered two pugnacious, guttural turns that ought to keep the impressions coming for years.
It seems that Paramount is taking a page out of 'The Avengers' notebook by casting Kevin Costner in not one, but two Tom Clancy adaptations as the same character. First up is the Kenneth Branagh Jack Ryan reboot, and then the Christopher McQuarrie adaptation of 'Without Remorse' -- the latter of which is eyeing Tom Hardy to lead.
This is already the greatest film decision ever: Two of the best working actors -- Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon -- are going to star in the same film. At the same time. And everything was beautiful and nothing hurt ever again.
In Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' Batman/Bruce Wayne faces his most dangerous and enigmatic foe yet: the muscular, masked Bane (Tom Hardy). There were a lot of questions left unanswered about his character, and it appears those answers were left on the cutting room floor.
Well, except for an answer to "what the hell does his voice sound like?" which is a question that's been eating away at our collective pop culture consciousness for weeks now.
There's been a lot of jokey articles about what Bane would look like with his mask off. But seriously: what would Bane look like with his mask off? Courtesy of some behind-the-scenes photos from the 'Dark Knight Rises' set, we have a little bit of an idea.
Since the 'Dark Knight Rises' prologue previewed for fans in theaters this past Christmas season, there was a lot of controversy surrounding the voice of the film's villain, Bane. No one could understand what the heck this guy was saying. Director Christopher Nolan reportedly tweaked the audio but what remains is still unmistakeably...weird. So where did Tom Hardy come up with this?
Yesterday marked the beginning of the end of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' as all the stars and crew behind the final Christopher Nolan-directed Batman trilogy came out to New York City yesterday for the premiere. And what better location to host the 'Dark Knight Rises' premiere than the so named real-life city of Gotham.
"It is not the violence that sets men apart. It is the distance that he is prepared to go." Mighty strong words from the second trailer of the upcoming action/drama 'Lawless' starring Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Guy Pearce. And if the trailer doesn't convince you these guys don't mean business, then the infographic showing off their weapons will.
Remember that awesome ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ footage Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt brought to the MTV Movie Awards? The one that was pulled offline immediately after Warner allowed it to be screened as part of the program? Well, it’s back online – in HD – and you don’t have to endure thousands of screaming ‘Twilight’ fans to enjoy it.
