The great Tom Hardy stars in writer-director Steven Knight's single-location drama thriller, Locke. Take a look at the new UK trailer...

Here's a great example of a trailer that's pleasingly high on tension yet low on revealing plot details. Steven Knight's forthcoming Locke is a single-location thriller about a businessman on a drive from Wales to London and feeling his life unravelling around him as he does so. Tom Hardy plays the title character, whose past comes back to haunt him on this fateful motorway journey, where tailbacks and overpriced service station pasties are the least of his problems.

The festival buzz for the film suggests that Hardy turns in a pared back, excellent performance in a pared back, excellent film. Knight is the writer behind such films as Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises, and previously wrote and directed the Jason Statham thriller Hummingbird (also known as Redemption in the US), so we're really looking forward to this one.

Locke's out on the 18th April in the UK.
