Movie Review: George Miller’s ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ is like a bolt of non-stop energy that begins as soon as it starts and doesn’t let up till the last frame of the film has finished and you’re walking back to your car.
Here’s the screen test Tom Hardy did for the 2002 film, Star Trek: Nemesis. In the clip, he and star Sir Patrick Stewart go mano-a-mano and even though he had little credits at the time, Hardy more than holds his own against the actor.
Tom Hardy is currently in production on George Miller’s new postapocalyptic actioner, in which he takes on the role of Mad Max, opposite Charlize Theron. He will next be seen in the crime drama Lawless, which premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
The Dark Knight’s Christian Bale: “It was very bittersweet when I took off the cowl for last time, because it’s meant so much to me personally to play this character”
It’s hard to accept that The Dark Knight Rises will likely be the last time we’ll see Christian Bale as Batman (though as Sean Connery would say, “Never say never”). On that note, Bale took the time to express his thoughts on the last chapter of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and the series as a whole, as well as speaking about his feelings about leaving the character behind after three films.
Tom Hardy: “There is nothing ambiguous about Bane. He is clearly a villain…just a horrible piece of work”
Bane might not rank among the “classic” Batman villains (the hulking back-breaker was introduced in the comics in 1993), but the character is a perfect fit for the Batman world created by Christopher Nolan in his Dark Knight trilogy. To play the villain in The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan turned to Tom Hardy, who appeared in Nolan’s previous film, Inception.
At last, it’s here: the long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s The Dark Knight, generally considered the best comic book superhero movie ever made (and until this year’s The Avengers, the highest-grossing). The Dark Knight Rises is also director Christopher Nolan’s farewell to the Batman franchise, and the nearly three-hour film was perhaps the most challenging of his career.
Tom Hardy Talks ‘Lawless’, ‘Dark Knight’ and Acting: “When I’m working, I have this discipline and I get meaning from it”
