Lionsgate have now official released these rather cool new poster or posters on their Facebook page for new movie, Warrior which is directed by Gavin O’Connor. The movie stars man of the moment, Tom Hardy alongside Jennifer Morrison, Nick Nolte, Joel Edgerton, Noah Emmerich and Kevin Dunn but it’s Hardy and Edgerton that we get to focus on here.
The posters show Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton squaring up for the new movie. I recently saw Edgerton in Animal Kingdom and although his role was brief, it was excellent and I’m very much looking forward to seeing this one.
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.
Warrior is set to be released in the UK 7th October. Click this to make it grow BIG!
