Next month, Tom Hardy and a puppy will come together for the running time of a feature-length film called “The Drop.” And that’s fine. But around The Playlist offices, this movie is known as the “Tom Hardy Puppy Party,” and new clip has arrived showing just what his character is up against in the dramatic thriller.
Co-starring James Gandolfini, Matthias Schoenaerts and Noomi Rapace, the movie follows a Brooklyn bartender who gets mixed up in the wrong crowd, with an abused pit bull puppy falling into his arms. As you’ll see in this clip, he becomes quite attached to the canine, even if it will cost him dearly, financially and otherwise.
“Tom Hardy Puppy Party” opens on September 12th and will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Michael Roskam (“Bullhead“) directs. [Vulture]
