A newly-released sneak peek clip from the hotly-anticipated musical biopic "I Saw The Light" provides the very first look at English actor Tom Hiddleston (aka Loki from the Marvel Films) as country-music legend Hank Williams Sr. The clip, featuring Williams' first major chart-topper "Move It On Over," also offers a small taste of Hiddleston's singing voice as the actor is performing all the songs in the upcoming movie.

The film, written and directed by Hollywood producer-turned-filmmaker Marc Abraham (Flash of Genius), tells the life and career of the Alabama-born singer-songwriter, who tragically died at the age of 29 from years of abusing drugs and alcohol. Elizabeth Olsen (aka Scarlet Witch from the Marvel Films) portrays Hank's first wife Audrey Mae Williams, a singing musician who also wound up suffering from her own severe drinking problem.

"I Saw The Light" will be making its world premiere this week at the Toronto International Film Festival.
