Share Share

Been an ex-graphic design univerity student despite not been working in that industry I still have the eye for powerful graphics and it was the posters for LEGACY (see below) that attracted me to what the movie was all about.

The movie was directed by Nigerian born London raised director Thomas Ikimi, so roll on February’s Glasgow International Film Festival and the press launch and Thomas was there to promote his new movie and to announce Glasgow was to be the movies world premiere and closing movie. I tried in vein even with my press pass to get ticket for it along with opening movie Micmacs and I was left dissappointed.

Several people have asked me why did he picked Glasgow Film Fest not Tribeca, Sundance or even Edinburgh for his movies premiere? Simple the movie studio that back and created his movie was Black Camel from Glasgow so what better way to thank them and have it premiered in Glasgow.So whose in it and whats it all about?

The movie stars The Wire’s Idris Elba as an Black Ops Operative whocomes back home after an failed mission in Eastern Europe. He’s stuck in a Brooklyn motel torn apart from retribution and Salvation and as things close in on him it may only be the story is all he can leave behind.

Do you the amount of people who actually believe Idris Elba is American, well he’s not ,born and bred in London just simply down to the amount of American based movies and television he has done in the past, so when I had to tell my American friends who are massive Fans of The Wire he’s British they were shocked! The other thing that may surprise you is that the setting for the movie isn’t actually Brooklyn its Glasgow, Scotland!!! Thomas Ikimi studied Film in New York and spent 6 years of his life in the metropolis and was able to adapt.

The movie also stars The Wire’s Eamon Walker, Monique Gabriela Curnen and Richard Brake. There’s No release date yet but expect a release sometime this year possibly summertime.
