At this week’s London Film Festival, a headline gala event has been held for the latest 20th Century Studios film, “The Bikeriders”, which is a new furious drama following the rise of a fictional 1960s Midwestern motorcycle club through the lives of its members.
Inspired by Danny Lyon’s iconic book of photography,“The Bikeriders” immerses you in the look, feel, and sounds of the bare-knuckled, grease-covered subculture of ’60s motorcycle riders. Kathy, a strong-willed member of the Vandals who’s married to a wild, reckless bikerider named Benny, recounts the Vandals’ evolution over the course of a decade, beginning as a local club of outsiders united by good times, rumbling bikes, and respect for their strong, steady leader Johnny. Over the years, Kathy tries her best to navigate her husband’s untamed nature and his allegiance to Johnny, with whom she feels she must compete for Benny’s attention. As life in the Vandals gets more dangerous, and the club threatens to become a more sinister gang, Kathy, Benny and Johnny are forced to make choices about their loyalty to the club and to each other.
The film stars Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, Tom Hardy, Michael Shannon, Mike Faist, Boyd Holbrook, and Norman Reedus. However, due to the actor’s strike, they weren’t in attendance at the gala event. However, many British celebrities, including chef Jamie Oliver and “The Grand Tour” presenter, Richard Hammon, were in attendance for the event.
