Tom Hardy takes on Joel Edgerton in the MMA ring in the trailer for Warrior

04.07.2011

Damn, is this official trailer day? I'm on my third one so far.

Yeah, go ahead and say it...it reminds you of THE FIGHTER. Every other person I've seen make a comment on the trailer around the internet has been saying that. Maybe you won't. It does have similarities especially the font they use.

But guess what the trailer for WARRIOR has that THE FIGHTER doesn't? Nick Nolte. Oh, and Jennifer Morrison's sweet ass. Personally, I think it looks like it will be pretty good. It has Tom Hardy, how can anything with him be wrong? (I'm partial) Those of you who are into MMA might like this as well. Check it out below and give us your feedback on the trailer.

"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 (Nick Nolte). 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."

Extra Tidbit: I was surprised that I knew who Kurt Angle was. I haven't watched wrestling in about 10 years.

Meh. I still maintain that Redbelt is the best "sports/fight drama" in the last 10 years.

Looks Great!!

Yeah you fellow schmoes who said this looked like a watered down version of the fighter are crazy. This looks better. Hardy. Nolte. Edgarton i mean come on this looks like it has more heart and fight in it than the Fighter. Im stoked to see this and i dont even care for MMA fighting. That says something right there.

Looks like you've never seen Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, Smokin' Aces, King Arthur, Animal Kingdom, or The Square. Solid roles in fairly high profile films. As far as 30-ish australian actors go, Joel Edgerton beats out someone like Sam Worthington every time.

Totally screams Oscar-bait, but I like the two leads, so this could still be worthwhile.

The Fighter 2011?

Man, this looks too much like a copy of The Fighter but not as good. But I really, really hope I'm wrong, also I saw something on moviefone.com about Nolte's performance likely to get some buzz around Oscar time.

Looks like a watered down version of "The Fighter".

So no, I don't think so. And I like Tom Hardy.

mma fight scenes

MMA fight scenes are difficult to film realistically so I was worried at first but this actually looks decent....except for 2 things that are really bothering me. First they flash Kurt Angle, I know he was an OLYMPIC wrestler at one point and not just WWE but as if they couldnt get someone like Randy Couture or Chuck who are very recognizable and actual mma fighters. second, the first in-cage moment they show is a fucking POWERBOMB!?! When the fuck has anyone ever powerbombed anyone in mma!?

Looks like every other sports movie ever made. Even as shitty as it looks, having Jennifer Morrison in her underwear means I have to see it.
