I can understand why some people wouldn't like sports movies. With a few exceptions they are typically the same story over and over again: beaten down underdog fights his way to the top and becomes a champion. But, as The Fighter proved last year, when done well it can actually be pretty exhilarating. We'll have to wait and see if Warrior can accomplish the same feat.

Apple has launched the first trailer for the MMA movie, starring Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton and Nick Nolte. In the film, two estranged brothers, one a teacher, one a war hero, finds themselves both returning to fighting after spending years away. What they have to prepare for, though, is that they are on a path to face off against each other.

Check out the trailer below or in HD over on Apple.

While performances in both Bronson and Inception have me 100% sold on Tom Hardy, I'm not so sure about this movie. Ignoring the fact that this trailer basically gives everything away except for who wins the fight at the end, it just seems a bit too generic (seeing that this film is directed by the same guy who did Miracle actually explains a lot). Hopefully the movie doesn't end up being one huge trope. For more on Warrior, be sure to head over to our Blend Film Database
