The Drop Featurette – Rocco The Dog No, The Drop is not a family movie about a dog and his owner, this is a crime drama starring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace and a bunch of boxers.

Toronto 2014 Review: Roskam's THE DROP Is A Top Notch Crimer And Fitting Goodbye For Gandolfini Michael Roskam burst onto the scene three years ago with his Belgian bovine crime drama Bullhead. The film thrilled audiences from Berlin to Fantastic Fest and went on to score a nomination for the Best Foreign Language Oscar. We've been waiting patiently to see what Roskam would do next, and the film gods have smiled upon us as Roskam's sophomore outing is every bit the apt follow-up that Bullhead deserves. A taut crime drama in Roskam's signature slow burn style, The Drop announces Roskam to English language audiences in a big way.

James Gandolfini doesn't think very highly of Tom Hardy in a new clip from “The Drop,” an upcoming crime drama that features the late actor's final performance on the big screen. “I'm not the guy that wasted his entire life waiting for it to start,” Gandolfini tells Hardy's character in the clip (above). “At least I had something once. I was respected, I was feared.” See video: James Gandolfini Is Respected, Feared in Trailer for Final Film ‘The Drop’ The Sept. 12 release was directed by Michaël R.

Dennis Lehane has been behind some of the best mysteries and thrillers of the past several years, as the author of Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, and Shutter Island. But this fall’s The Drop marks his first time actually adapting his own work for the screen. Based on Lehane’s short story “Animal Rescue,” the crime drama follows two cousins (Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini) who run a Brooklyn bar that functions as a drop point for local gangsters. When the place is robbed, the pair find themselves at the center of events which spin out of their control.

‘The Drop’ Trailer: Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini Are on the Wrong End of a Robbery

feedproxy.google.com – Bullhead director Michaël R. Roskam got to call the shots on The Drop, which scripted by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone). You probably wouldn’t even need to have that spelled out for you, because this first The Drop trailer very much conveys the feel of films like Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone, perhaps with a bit of Killing Them Softly thrown in.

First Look: Tom Hardy in Late James Gandolfini's Final Film 'The Drop'

feedproxy.google.com – It's crazy to think that last summer brought the tragic news that James Gandolfini had passed away. The actor appeared in last year's charming comedy Enough Said, and this year will mark his final feature film performance in The Drop. Formerly known as Animal Rescue, the film follows an unassuming New York bartender (Tom Hardy) whose life is thrown asunder upon discovering a wounded dog and getting caught up in the middle of a criminal conspiracy unfolding in his mob-controlled bar. 5 years 29 weeks ago via donnieyen
