First Badass Posters for Gavin O'Connor's 'Warrior' with Tom Hardy
Lionsgate's patience is about to pay off. Pride & Glory director Gavin O'Connor shot a mixed martial arts drama a few years back (early 2009) called Warrior - we were actually one of the first to report that he was making it. Although its finished, they've been holding onto it for a while, now they can unleash and kick ass. The reason? Tom Hardy stars as one of the lead MMA fighters in the film, and his popularity has blown up since Inception. Starring as Hardy's brother is Joel Edgerton, the badass Aussie actor also on the rise with Animal Kingdom and The Thing. Both are seen on this badass poster for Warrior that leaked on Facebook.
This is the biggest version of the poster currently out there, but we'll update with a high def when we can.
This was posted on actress Jennifer Morrison's Facebook (via Cinema Blend) who stars in the film. I used that official still at the top, as that's all we've seen from it so far. This seems like two posters side-by-side.
Warrior is directed by Gavin O'Connor from a script by Anthony Tambakis, Cliff Dorfman & O'Connor. The youngest son (Tom Hardy) of an alcoholic former boxer (Nick Nolte) returns home, where he's trained by his father to compete in a mixed martial arts tournament, a path that puts him on a collision course with his older brother (Joel Edgerton). Also starring in this: Jennifer Morrison, Noah Emmerich, Kevin Dunn and Kurt Angle. It's basically about these two brothers (Hardy, Edgerton) who have to, through the course of the story, find each other again and reconnect with their father. Lionsgate has Warrior scheduled for release on September 9th this fall, so we've got a little while to wait, but we'll let you know when we have the trailer.
