Tom Hardy leads the way in “Locke,” a drama/thriller about a regular working stiff named Ivan Locke trying to keep his life together over one drive, while talking to the people in his life over the phone. All of the action happens behind the wheel of the E70 BMW X5.
The X5 comes with the M Sport package and gets some screen time in Tom Hardy’s entirely in-car film . The film was written and directed by Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things director Steven Knight, with Hardy playing a Welsh building site manager driving across the UK.
Olivia Coleman, Andrew Scott and Ruth Wilson are among the voice cast, making calls to Locke as he travels.
Locke is due to open in UK cinemas on April 18, 2014.
The E70 X5 was introduced in 2006 as the second generation X5 featuring the torque-split capable xDrive all-wheel drive system mated to an automatic transmission. Later on in 2009 the X5 M performance variant was released as a 2010 model.
