Today sees the release of the Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton fighting phenomenon that is Warrior! Lionsgate hopes Warrior will be the champion of the box-office this weekend though they have a hard task to topple a heavyweight such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy of the top, Warrior is an MMA film of fierce proportions.
The good folks at Lionsgate UK have sent us over 2 more clips ‘Dinner’ which sees Tommy (Hardy) have a light discussion over dinner with his Dad (Nolte) insisting training is the only topic he wants to hear, in the second clip ‘Pre Fight’ We see Brendan (Edgerton) in pre-fight build up with his trainer Frank (Grillo) who istrying to inspire Brendam he can do it!
Warrior is out now read Harry’s review here.
An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan (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.
