Lionsgate have released this music video TV spot for Gavin O’Connor’s fantastic Mixed Martial Arts drama ‘Warrior,’ providing us an insight into the films family dynamic to the backdrop of The National’s ‘About Time.’ ‘Warrior’ stars two of the very best young actors around in Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) and Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom). The film opens September 9th in the US, and September 23rd in the UK – definitely one to check out, I thought it was magnificent!

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 Riordan (Tom 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 (Joel 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.
