Trailer for Tom Hardy’s MMA Movie Warrior Finally Fights its Way Online

5 Comments

I’ve been hearing about Gavin O’Connor’s MMA movie “Warrior” for a while now, with an image here and there, but this is the first footage we’ve seen from the film. You would think a movie starring Tom Hardy would get a harder sales push, but not so much. Check out the first trailer for “Warrior”, which stars Hardy as an ex-Marine who finds himself fighting in an MMA arena. Against his brother, no less. Hardy in an action role is always surprisingly good stuff, and dude looks HUGE. Looks like he won’t have to work too hard to get in shape for Bane…

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy) returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, 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, (Joel 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 after being suspended from his day job. Even though years have passed, recriminations and 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.

Starring Joel Edgerton, Tom Hardy, Jennifer Morrison, Nick Nolte and directed by Gavin O’Connor.

Step into the ring September 9, 2011.

    Looks interesting, although the MMA fights looks so hollywood like. Also it looks too much to The Fighter.

    Still I’m going to see Bane on theaters.

    How has anyone forgotten how big he got for “Bronson”? This looks interesting though.

    I remember “Bronson”……..but that looked more like he just threw on muscle……..this time it looks like he packed it on with precision. I cannot wait for “The Dark Knight Rises”…………
