A new, shorter theatrical trailer for co-writer and director Gavin O'Connor's (Pride and Glory) new Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) sports drama, Warrior, recently began running in theaters and it is now available for viewing online.
The movie centers around a dysfunctional family of fighters who clash over the largest fight purse in MMA history. Tom Hardy stars as Tommy Riordan, an ex-Marine who returns home to Pittsburgh and enlists the help of his alcoholic father (Nick Nolte), a former boxer, to train for the MMA tournament. Meanwhile, Tommy's estranged older brother, Brendan (Joel Edgerton), a school teacher and former MMA fighter, returns to the ring for a chance to provide for his family. The bad blood between the brothers boils to the surface as they find themselves squaring off against each other inside the ring.
Warrior was written by O'Connor, Anthony Tambakis and Cliff Dorfman, from a story conceived by O'Connor and Dorfman. Noah Emmerich, Kevin Dunn, Denzel Whitaker, Kurt Angle and Jennifer Morrison also star.
