If you’ve been wondering where Tom Hardy has been hiding, he’s probably somewhere pumping iron for his role as Bane in Christopher Nolan’s sequel The Dark Knight Rises. But prior to that, he got in shape for the indie fighting flick Warrior, which co-stars Australian Joel Edgerton and Nick Nolte. You might be asking yourself, when, where, and what is Warrior?! Allow us to introduce you to the film. Check out the poster…
The film centers on a dysfunctional family led by an alcoholic father (Nolte) who gets sober and bonds with his youngest son (Hardy) over mixed martial arts. He ends up training him to compete in an MMA tournament with the opponent being none other than his estranged older son (Edgerton).
Hardy’s character Tommy Riordan is a former Marine with a tragic past, and his brother Brenden (Edgerton) is a struggling public school teacher who returns to MMA to provide for his family. The siblings training and fights eventually collide in the ring and all hell breaks loose.
The poster for this movie really creeps us out, because of how close Hardy and Edgerton resemble each other. Do we need to do a background check on these two?
