warrior image movie Debut Trailer For Warrior   Starring Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton & Nick Nolte

Lionsgate have released this rather fantastic (yet spoilerish) debut trailer for Gavin O’Connor’s Mixed Martial Arts drama ‘Warrior.’ The film stars two of the very best young actors around in Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) and Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom). As an MMA fan and a keen admirer of both Hardy and Edgerton I’m thoroughly stoked for this flick! ‘Warrior’ opens September 9th.

Two brothers face the fight of a lifetime – and the wreckage of their broken family – within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting in Lionsgate’s action/drama, Warrior.

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Conlon (Hardy) returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father (Nick Nolte), a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan (Edgerton), a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father.

But when Brendan’s unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.
