Josh Trank, the director of Chronicle just released the trailer for his latest film Capone, a biopic starring Tom Hardy , that recently changed titles from Fonzo, addding a new distributor and digital release dates in May.
The trailer seems to be promise to question a part of Capone’s life we’re not as familiar with. The film also stars Linda Cardellini, Matt Dillon, and Kyle MacLachlan
The film is dropping through Vertical Entertainment, and is Tranks first since Fantastic Four. A film that he has gone on record to say that the studio butchered his cut. So his mentioning “my cut” is telling. It shows he’s proud of this one, and putting his money where his mouth is… while also throwing shade that old bosses at Fox who took over his film.
With a May 12th by Vertical Entertainment as a digital release and Redbox Entertainment 48-hour rental, there are still expectations on a potential theatrical release later if theaters do open with safe-distancing, something that is being currently discussed on a state level.
What are you thoughts on the trailer? Think Tom Hardy will give a worthy performance? Are you excited to see what Trank has to offer post Fantastic Four and his drama with Fox?
