Tom Hardy breaks out his "Bronson" bod once again for "Warrior," the MMA fighting drama that finds Joel Edgerton playing his brother and centers on the siblings who will have to face each other in the ring for money and their father's love or something like that.

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 (Edgerton), a school teacher and former fighter himself, 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. Our main issue here is the selling point that compares the film to the milquetoast hockey movie "Miracle" that we forgot O'Connor also directed. And we swear to god, if one brother lets the other one win for some lame reason (oh, so his daughter doesn't see Daddy get shit-kicked), we'll be pissed.

Guess we'll find out when the film hits on September 9th. Check out the trailer below (or in HD at Apple).
