Sports movie Warrior takes sibling rivalry to the extreme.

The drama film stars rising actors Tom Hardy (Inception) and Joel Edgerton (The Thing) as brothers who have been estranged since they were teens, when differing feelings about their alcoholic father (Nick Nolte, Cape Fear) tore them apart. Hardy returns to his hometown to get his father to train him for a big Mma tournament, but Edgerton, who’s about to lose his house due to economic struggles, becomes an underdog in the same tournament. As they fight for money, they must also fight their own family history.

The film is directed and co-written by Gavin O’Connor, who knows something about inspirational sports movies as he also helmed 2004′s Miracle, about the U.S. hockey run in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Warrior also stars Jennifer Morrison of TV’s Once Upon a Time.
