Corruption and bribery in the East End. And the Kray Twins.

Corruption, intimidation, bribery.

An organised mob with total contempt for the rule of law in East London.


And as well as that here’s the trailer for the new Kray Twins film ‘Legend’!

Have a watch and see if you can spot the bits filmed in Wapping…

Got it? Looks good doesn’t it? No idea?

Here’s another clue. Which Wapping pub is this?


Still no idea? You need to get out more.

Turners Old Star of course! Many of us several days watching the massive logistical operation that goes into making a big budget picture and very interesting it was too.

Top marks to the film’s star Tom Hardy who plays both the Kray Twins, good to see him being a pretty normal person and saying hello to young fans who had waited for hours to see him.

Brian Helgeland is writer and director of Legend, which also stars Emily Browning, Christopher Eccleston, Taron Egerton, Tara Fitzgerald, Chazz Palminteri and David Thewlis.

Various Old Star regulars are convinced they are in the film too. No comment.

‘Legend’ is definitely worth a watch when it is released in September this year.

And before we forget if you are visiting Wapping come and have a pint in Turners Old Star, one of the few pubs in the East End that actually looks like a pub should.
