MMA Drama 'Warrior' Gets Sneak Previews Nationwide This Sunday
See the movie everyone is cheering about! Lionsgate announced nationwide "sneak previews" this Sunday for the MMA drama Warrior, starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton as brothers and former MMA fighters who end up in the ring together. This is one of my favorite films of the year - and I'm even quoted on their site saying that. They've launched a sneak info page at warriorsneakpreview.com that includes some juicy quotes, including a couple from yours truly, from my early review at CinemaCon. The previews are happening this Sunday, September 4th, at 7PM everywhere before it officially hits theaters next weekend.
The youngest son (Hardy) of a former boxer returns home, where he's trained by his father (Nolte) for competition in a MMA tournament -- a path that also puts him on a collision corner with his older brother.
Warrior is directed by American filmmaker Gavin O'Connor, of films like Tumbleweeds, Miracle, and Pride and Glory previously. The screenplay was written by Anthony Tambakis, Cliff Dorfman & O'Connor from a story by Cliff Dorfman ("Entourage") & Gavin O'Connor. This was filmed back in 2009 mostly in Pittsburgh and Atlantic City. Lionsgate is bringing Warrior to theaters on September 9th. I highly suggest seeing this, it's such a great movie. Let us know if you make it to a preview - we want to hear your thoughts!
