With "Inception" turning Tom Hardy into a worldwide star and an in-demand actor, you'll be seeing his name rise to the top of movie posters and start being used to promote flicks. And his first post-"Inception" film hoping to bank on Hardy's rising star power will be "Warrior," and it now has a fresh poster that fits right in with the subject matter.

With "Inception" turning Tom Hardy into a worldwide star and an in-demand actor, you'll be seeing his name rise to the top of movie posters and start being used to promote flicks. And his first post-"Inception" film hoping to bank on Hardy's rising star power will be "Warrior," and it now has a fresh poster that fits right in with the subject matter.

Directed by Gavin O’Connor ("Pride & Glory”), the film tells the story of an ex-Marine (Hardy) who gets his boozing father to help him train to become an MMA fighter. Meanwhile his estranged brother Brendan (Joel Edgerton) is a school teacher and former fighter himself who gets back in the ring to get money together for his family. As you might expect, family tensions rise. Nick Nolte, Jennifer Morrison, Noah Emmerich, Kevin Dunn and Denzel Whitaker round out the cast for this one, which we're cautiously optimistic for.

The film will hit theaters on September 9th; check out the full poster below.
