I got to see Warrior a couple of weeks ago and other than a little too much hand-held shaky camera action and close-up work, I love it! Emma did too and you can read her 5* review of the movie here. It’s now out until September 23rd but in the meantime, here’s a couple of new set images showing the two leads on set with director, Gavin O’Connor.

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan (Hardy) returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father (Nick Nolte), 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 (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.

If you missed the trailer for Warrior, you can catch up with it here and all the rest of our coverage here.

Warrior is directed by Gavin O’Connor and also stars Jennifer Morrison, Nick Nolte, Kevin Dunn and Noah Emmerich. To coincide with the movie, Lionsgate have also teamed with Mitsubishi for your chance to win a Mitsubishi L200 Warrior pick-up! Not too bad a prize eh!
