Tom Hardy takes a very important call in the upcoming thriller “Locke” from writer-turned-director Steven Knight (“Dirty Pretty Things,” “Closed Circuit”).
The character-driven “Locke” is the most recent in a string of post-millennial films which take place primarily in the claustrophobic confines of a car. Hardy plays a man named Ivan Locke who take cares of business — both personal and professional — on his cell phone while driving cross-ountry through England. He also carries on an imaginary dialogue with his deceased father.
The action in the clip is mostly played back-to-front, countering the chilling words “Some choices you can't reverse.” You can even hear a little bit of Hardy's “Dark Knight Rises” character Bane when he says, “I have made my decision…”

It also stars Tom Holland, Olivia Colman and Andrew Scott.
“Locke” opens April 18 in the U.K. and April 25 in the U.S.
