Brand New Poster For Tom Hardy in Locke
Get your first glimpse of the real-time drama

If you've ever dreamed of sharing a long car ride just talking to Tom Hardy, well, you are cleaner of mind than most of his fans. And you're also in luck, because in his new drama Locke he spends 84 minutes in real time just driving down the M6 and M1 on his way back to London. Here's the first poster for the film.

Hardy's Ivan Locke is driving to London to be present at the birth of his child. Just a few complications: his wife (Ruth Wilson) is not the woman giving birth. His teenage sons (Tom Holland and Bill Millner) are at home, disappointed that he won't be home to see a football match. And the next day is due to see a key stage in a huge construction project that he's overseeing. So no pressure then.

Hardy's is the only face you'll see in the 84-minute film, but early word is that he carries the story along quite comfortably. Steven Knight, of Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things, wrote the script and also directs. Locke hits screens on April 18, and the trailer is due this coming Monday.
