Locke: Exclusive Blu-ray Clip
There aren’t a lot of movies out there with starring only one actor (yes, fine, Robert Altman’s Secret Honor, but come on… it’s rare). If you make one, that actor had better be absolutely freaking amazing. Fortunately for Academy Award-nominated writer/director Steven Knight (Eastern Promises), he got one for his new movie Locke. Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises and Inception stars as the title character, who gets in his car and just keeps driving as the story unfolds around him in one phone call after another.
Locke arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on August 12, 2014, and we scored a CraveOnline Exclusive clip from the home video release’s special features. Watch as Tom Hardy and Steven Knight reveal some of the work that went into making an experimental film like Locke work, and pry it open for yourself at home this week.
From the Press Release:
Tom Hardy is a “blazing wonder” (Rolling Stone) in a tour-de-force central performance in Locke, a feat of bold, dynamic storytelling from Oscar®-nominated writer-director Steven Knight (Best Original Screenplay, Dirty Pretty Things, 2003; Eastern Promises), arriving on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) August 12 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Winner of Best Screenplay at the British Independent Film Awards, the “compelling, genuinely moving and suspenseful” (Vanity Fair) film was theatrically released by A24. “Gripping and deeply cinematic” (Screen Daily), Locke is a thrilling ride that follows a successful businessman as he receives a series of phone calls that set in motion a chain of events that will unravel his perfect life, all of which takes place in real time over the course of one absolutely riveting and intense car ride.
