"Warrior" (2011) is a moving, inspirational action drama starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton as two estranged brothers facing the fight of a lifetime.

Haunted by a tragic past, Marine Tommy Conlon (Hardy) returns home for the first time in fourteen years to enlist the help of his father (Nick Nolte) to train for Sparta, the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. A former wrestling prodigy, Tommy blazes a path toward the championship while his brother, Brendan (Edgerton), an ex-fighter-turned teacher, returns to the ring in a desperate bid to save his family from financial ruin. But when Brendan's unlikely, underdog rise sets him on a collision course with the unstoppable Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront each other and the forces that pulled them apart, facing off in the most soaring, soul stirring, and unforgettable climax that must be seen to be believed.

A rousing ode to redemption, reconciliation and the power of the human spirit, "Warrior" is also a moving testament to the enduring bonds of family.

The "Warrior" cast includes Joel Edgerton ("Animal Kingdom," "Star Wars: Episode III"), Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises," Inception," "Black Hawk Down"), Jennifer Morrison ("House," "Star Trek") and Nick Nolte ("Tropic Thunder," "The Thin Red Line").

Lionsgate's "Warrior" (2011) is produced by Mimran Schur Pictures, Solaris Entertainment and Filmtribe. The film is directed by Gavin O'Connor ("Miracle" and "Pride and Glory") from a screenplay by O'Connor & Anthony Tambakis & Cliff Dorman, based on a story by O'Connor & Cliff Dorfman.
