Tom Hardy as Al Capone? Sure, why the fuck not. This came out of no where and damn, does it have my full attention. The Irishman satisfied our gangster movie wants and needs last year and it looks like Tom Hardy will be delivering what we always wanted this year. A high budget, Al Capone biopic. The visuals look stunning and Hardy’s transformation into Capone looks incredible. Some of the shots teased in the trailer look pretty damn epic and I can’t wait to see a release date soon.
Capone is described as “The 47-year old Al Capone, after 10 years in prison, starts suffering from dementia and comes to be haunted by his violent past.” The idea of showing Capone in a vulnerable state after his prison sentence is a great idea because this it the time in history where a lot of questions needed answering and this is the dude behind it all. He is suffering from dementia and is unhinged in a destructive way. High hopes are built in with this subject material so lets hope it delivers. Here is the official trailer for Capone.
