Lionsgate has released this new movie poster for the Gavin O'Connor (Miricle) directed MMA drama Warrior. This looks like it could be a solid film, and I'm looking forward to seeing it. The story focuses on two MMA fighters who are brothers that, in the end, will have to beat the living shit out of each other for a title fight. The brothers are played by Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, and also co-stars Nick Nolte as their estranged father, as well as Jennifer Morrison and Noah Emmerich. Is this a film you are looking forward to seeing?
Here's the full synopsis:
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.
