Trailer for WARRIOR hits

Are you one of those people who think films like THE FIGHTER are lacking in cage fighting and shots of a shirtless Tom Hardy? Then this newly released trailer (via Apple) for the upcoming Gavin O’Connor film, WARRIOR, will fix that.

Starring a huge Hardy (putting questions surrounding his ability to play the large Batman baddie Bane to rest) and the up-and-coming star Joel Edgerton, WARRIOR is a new sports drama that follows two brothers who must go head to head in an MMA battle.

Co-starring Nick Nolte, Jennifer Morrison, Noah Emmerich, Kevin Dunn, and Denzel Whitaker, the film is helmed by O’Connor (PRIDE AND GLORY), making this definitely one sports drama that could be quite a solid little picture. O’Connor is a great filmmaker, but it’s truly this outstanding cast (particularly Nolte, in a role that I think he is perfect for) that has this film on my radar. The trailer itself is fine, giving us a good look at what to expect from the film, but it also shows us that it may be far more cliché than one would like.

What do you think about the trailer?
