Here is the first movie trailer for Warrior, from director Gavin O'Connor. The film is an inspirational sports drama focusing on two MMA fighters who happen to be brothers, played by Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton. It also stars Nick Nolte as their estranged father, as well as Jennifer Morrison and Noah Emmerich.
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.
Warrior arrives in theaters on September 9th from Lionsgate. Check out the trailer below or in HD at Apple and share your thoughts.
