Tom Hardy films and TV shows: the 20 best titles streaming now

From Peaky Blinders to Taboo, here’s our pick of the best Tom Hardy films and TV shows streaming on Netflix, BBC iPlayer, NOW, Disney+ and Amazon Prime right now.

As you’re no doubt already keenly aware, the much-anticipated second season of Tom Hardy’s Taboo is currently in the works over at BBC One. The dark and gritty drama TV series, set in 1814, tells the story of James Keziah Delaney (Hardy), who has been long-presumed dead by his friends and family. And so, when he shows up unexpectedly after the death of his father, people are left shaken especially those who are vying to take over his father’s land for themselves.

As mentioned, the second season of Taboo is very much in the development phase  although one imagines it will return us to a London filled with grime, debauchery, violence and stovepipe hats. If you’re finding it hard to wait for your next Hardy dose, though, don’t despair; we’ve picked out the very best films and TV shows starring the inimitable actor that you can stream via Netflix, BBC iPlayer, NOW, Disney+ or Amazon Prime Video right now. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Peaky Blinders is, quite possibly, one of the most riveting historical drama series out there largely because it follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family (that’s right, it’s a period drama about gangsters) in the direct aftermath of the First World War. Hardy stars as Alfie Solomons, a violent and unpredictable Jewish gang leader who proves himself to be completely untrustworthy time and time again. Which makes him incredibly watchable, quite frankly. Peaky Blinders is now streaming on BBC iPlayer.

In this painfully timely disaster film, the city of London is seemingly doomed when a mega storm sends a tidal wave up the Thames Estuary. Will Hardy, Robert Carlyle and Jessalyn Gilsig be able to save the city? One of Hardy’s earliest roles, this mythological horror film sees him venture into a complex labyrinth in order to rescue the girl of his dreams from well, from the dreaded Minotaur. Obviously.

Spy thrillers are very much the genre de jour of 2022, but Hardy was well ahead of the game with this little-known romcom. In it, he and Chris Pine star as CIA operatives – who also happen to be best friends. When they meet Reese Witherspoon’s Lauren, though, they both fall hard for her, and soon turn their deadly skills against each other in an all-out battle for her love. As Taboo’s iconic James Delaney, Hardy investigates his father’s suspicious death all while trying to reclaim his family’s pride.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Elliot Page’s powerhouse performances may steal the show here, but Inception is still one of the more brilliant titles on Hardy’s CV. A mind-blowing and innovative sci-fi from Christopher Nolan, it considers what might happen if we were able to steal information from others by entering their dreams. Admit it: Hardy was positively made to play the brutish Bill Sikes, wasn’t he? But this isn’t just one for Hardy fans, as this 00s retelling of the Charles Dickens morality tale is a truly star-studded affair; think Sophie Okonedo, Timothy Spall, Morven Christie, Sarah Lancashire, Michelle Gomez, Rob Brydon and so many more.

Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst’s electrifying Marie Antoinette focuses on the doomed queen’s adolescence, her penchant for all things luxury and her passionate love affair with Count Axel von Fersen. And, while Hardy doesn’t have the most screen-time as Raumont, you better believe that he appears in an aristocratic wig whenever he pops up. Which makes it all worthwhile, wouldn’t you say?
