The first teaser has landed for Tom Hardy car-set thriller Locke and, we have to admit, it certainly caught our interest.

Some basic footage, intercut with some glowing press babble, the 90-second trailer doesn’t give too much away, but does give enough of a flavour to warrant attention.

Hardy plays Ivan Locke, who finds his life unraveling over the course of a 90-minute drive, after a phone call forces him to make a decision that will impact his life forever.

Directed by Stephen Knight and also starring Ruth Wilson, Locke hits cinemas on April 18.
