Warrior centers on two brothers facing the fight of a lifetime and the wreckage of a broken family, while lurking in the backdrop is the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting in Warrior, which hits theaters sometime next year.
An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan (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. 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 confront the forces that tore them apart, while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.
Warrior stars Tom Hardy, Jennifer Morrison, Nick Nolte, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Dunn, Frank Grillo, Bryan Callen, Denzel Whitaker, Noah Emmerich, Kurt Angle, Liam Ferguson and Jake McLaughlin.
