Kray brothers crime drama Legend on Blu-ray, DVD and digital in January

4 November 2015

From Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (the writer of L.A. Confidential, Mystic River and A Knight's Tale) and Working Title (The Theory of Everything) comes the true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ronnie Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy (Inception, Mad Max: Fury Road) in a powerhouse double performance.

Together, the Kray Twins take over the city. But as their reign expands, power-struggles, fierce madness, and a woman diminishes their bond; the weak link that could cause their empire to collapse.

The strong supporting cast includes Emilie Browning (Pompeii), Christopher Ecclestone (Doctor Who), Taron Egerton (The Kingsman), Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything) and Paul Anderson (’71). The film is photographed by the multi-Oscar nominated Dick Pope and features a score from Coen brothers' regular Carter Burwell.

Legend comes to DVD, UK Blu-ray and Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbook from StudioCanal on 25th January 2015 and digital HD from 18th January 2015 from StudioCanal at the RRP of £19.99 for the DVD, £24.99 for the Blu-ray and £29.99 for the Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbook.
