Bronson is a crime film based on true story, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring Tom Hardy. In 1974, a misguided 19 year old named Michael Peterson decided he wanted to make a name for himself and so, with a homemade sawn-off shotgun and a head full of dreams he attempted to rob a post office. Swiftly apprehended and originally sentenced to 7 years in jail, Peterson has subsequently been behind bars for 34 years, 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement. This film set to be released on October 9, 2009 (USA).

With an intelligent, provocative and stylized approach, BRONSON follows the metamorphosis of Mickey Peterson into Britain's most dangerous prisoner, Charles Bronson.

Tom Hardy plays the title character with disturbing intensity who physically transformed himself for the role. Hardly said, "The opportunity to play such a complex and tormented real-life character was unique challenge for me, and one that required a great level of commitment and understanding." Director Nicholas Winding Refn says about his new film, "It is Bronson's unending thirst for celebrity that has kept in prison for long. And it was this particular aspect of his personality that we tried to capture in the film."
