Two New Posters for Warrior Make One Badass Fighter
03.11.11 by BJSprecher
Two mirror-image character posters from co-writer and director Gavin O'Connor's new MMA-themed sports drama, Warrior, were recently leaked online by actress Jennifer Morrison, who co-stars in the movie. Apparently, Morrison has since taken down the images because the link comes up as "unavailable," but not before ComingSoon could copy the images and upload them to their site. The posters feature the two lead actors, Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, who portray quarreling brothers who settle their differences in an MMA ring.
Here's a more detailed synopsis of the movie, courtesy of ComingSoon:
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.
