Tom Hardy is at the center of a robbery gone wrong in the new international trailer for Michaël R.

Tom Hardy does a pretty decent Brooklyn accent in our first look at footage from crime thriller “The Drop” (formerly “Animal Rescue,” based on the novel by Dennis Lehane), playing a bartender who gets drawn into dire circumstances after a robbery goes wrong at his establishment.
