Don’t mess with Tom Hardy. But then you probably already know that. In John Hillcoat’s new movie “Lawless”, Hardy plays one of three bootlegger brothers who battle everyone from the law to the criminals to keep their slice of the pie. That, apparently, involves Shia LaBeouf getting his ass kicked and Tom Hardy taking no guff from anyone. Check out a new clip from “Lawless”, opening August 31, 2012.
The true story of the infamous Bondurant Brothers: bootlegging siblings who made a run for the American Dream in Prohibition-era Virginia. Inspired by true-life tales of author Matt Bondurant’s family in his novel “The Wettest County In The World,” the loyalty of three brothers is put to the test against the backdrop of the nation’s most notorious crime wave.
“Lawless” also stars Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Dane Dehaan, Mia Wasikowska, Noah Taylor, and Lew Temple.
