Interviews with Tom Hardy, Austin Butler, and Other Stars of “The Bikeriders” Movie

The Bikeriders Movie
Austin Butler is part of the star-studded cast of “The Bikeriders,” which opens on June 21.

The Bikeriders is a film about a midwestern motorcycle club from the 1960s that hits theaters on June 21. The movie was inspired by a book of the same name originally published in 1968, which chronicled the characters and exploits of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club as it morphs from a friendly association to a biker gang.

The film adaptation is directed by Jeff Nichols (Loving; Midnight Special; Mud), who also wrote the screenplay over a period of several years. The movie stars Austin Butler (Elvis; Dune: Part 2), Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road; The Revenant), Norman Reedus (Walking Dead), and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve; The Last Duel).

Kevin Duke, editor-in-chief of our sibling publication, American Rider, got the opportunity to watch an advanced screening of the movie followed by an opportunity to interview the actors and director.

“I’m always dubious about Hollywood’s portrayal of motorcycling, but after watching an advance screening of this new film, I was really impressed with the production values and the acting,” said Duke. “Terrific performances throughout, especially from Hardy as the club leader ‘Johnny’ and Comer, the love interest of ‘Benny’ played by Butler. The motorcycles are all period-correct 1960s models, and their authentic sounds literally rumble the theater seats.”
