Lion’s Gate released the first trailer today for their upcoming mixed martial arts film Warrior. The film stars Tom Hardy (Inception) and Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom) as two estranged brothers on a collision course against each other in an MMA tournament. Nick Nolte (North Dallas Forty) stars as their recovering alcoholic father and trainer to Hardy’s character. Directed by Gavin O’Connor (Miracle, Pride & Glory) the film also boasts appearances by wrestling star Kurt Angle (It’s damn true!) and MMA fighters Nate “The Great” Marquardt and Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. Warrior had it’s first screening last week and was already being touted as one of the best films of the year but we’re going to have to wait until September to see it in theaters. Hope this will hold you over for now.

    Nick Nolte? I guess Gary Busey decided Celebrity Apprentice was the better gig?
