Release Date- September 9th
Directed by- Gavin O'Connor
Starring- Tom Hardy, Nick Nolte, Joel Edgerton, and Jennifer Morrison.

Plot-
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 Riordan 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, 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.
This film defiantly has my interest being a fan of MMA and also a fan of Tom Hardy. It also sounds really gritty hopefully it is done right because how many MMA films have there been? Let alone a good one...

Yeah but The Fighter was really good. I am not saying this will be The Fighter by any means though.

I'm going to watch Warrior purely for the fact Tom Hardy is in it, nothing else. I'm looking forward to it.
