Release Date: December 11, 2015
Studio: Universal
Director: Brian Helgeland (42, A Knight’s Tale)
Cast: Tom Hardy, Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald, and Taron Egerton.
Plot: From Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River) comes the true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in an amazing double performance.

Legend is a classic crime thriller taking us into the secret history of the 1960s and the extraordinary events that secured the infamy of the Kray twins. (Official Facebook Page)

Thoughts: What is better than Tom Hardy? Two Tom Hardy’s- In duel roles that already earned him a British Independent Film Award and have many thinking he’ll get an Oscar nom. As mentioned above, he takes on the roles of the Krey twins, infamous London gangsters. The trailer was intriguing, but honestly, I just want to see Legend to see how Hardy juggles the roles. It is always interesting to see how directors and actors handle having one person in two leading roles.

I really gotta say, when it comes to a new week of television I always look forward to ABC’s comedy block on Wednesdays. And tonight it is new across the board. The Middle and Modern Family have been consistently funny the past few years, while Suburgatory I only discovered with last week’s Halloween themed episode and with a mix a likeable characters and a creative story it kept me watching while I wasn’t looking for a new show to get hooked on. Happy Endings is a weird fit for the block, but I’m going to give it a chance. It doesn’t help that I’m anticipating the return of Cougar Town, which I’m still shocked that I love it as much as I do.

The Middle starts the block at 8pm, tonight’s episode is “Heck’s Best Thing”; Axl has an interview with a college-football scout, and his parents worry it won’t go well. Elsewhere, Sue and Brick engage in a texting marathon with their aunt’s cell phone.

Next up is Suburgatory with “Charity Case” at 8:30pm; Tessa persuades the school to get behind charitable causes, which yields mixed results, but her peers begin to wonder who really needs their help. Meanwhile, George’s friendship with Noah hits a snag after he gets a huge bill for dental work.

At 9pm we have the multiple Emmy award winning Modern Family. Tonight’s episode is “Treehouse”; Gloria persuades Jay to commit to a night of salsa dancing after seeing how much his friend Shorty (Chazz Palminteri) and his girlfriend (Jennifer Tilly) do together. Meanwhile, Cameron makes a bet that he can get a woman’s phone number at the bar; and Phil builds a tree house.

Last up we have Happy Endings with “Lying Around”; Brad sneaks off on a secret staycation at a plush hotel in the city in order to dodge a visit from Jane’s sorority sister. Meanwhile, Alex’s new boyfriend takes dating to a new level; and Max and Dave shoot a commercial for a lunch truck.
