Dailies | ‘Warrior’ Trailer: Tom Hardy Gets Punchy (Video)

“Inception” actor tries on mixed martial arts for size in hard-hitting new drama

Contrary to popular perception, the life of a mixed martial arts fighter isn't all glamour, bonbons and mani-pedis.

"Inception" actor Tom Hardy exposes the gritty side of the MMA lifestyle in his upcoming drama, "Warrior," which hits theaters on Sept. 9. (And those theaters better not even think about hitting back.)

The new trailer for the film, which also stars Nick Nolte and and Joel Edgerton, gives viewers an idea of how Hardy will tackle the role — and his opponents. Decide for yourself if he stands a fighting chance of pulling off the part after watching the video above.
