We at Everything Action are pretty big MMA fans but the sport hasn’t been represented well on the big screen (besides of course the cinematic masterpiece that was Never Back Down). This fall Warrior is looking to offer what could be one of the first serious scripted MMA movies. Starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton as brothers who both enter an MMA tournament for different reasons and eventually end up having to face off against each other. Nick Nolte, Noah Emmerich and Kevin Dunn are in the movie as well and hopefully it features some realistic MMA action and not fall into the trap that something like poker has done which is show completely unrealistic shit just because it looks good (see the climactic hand of Casino Royale for an example). I’m sure Joe will have a ton to say about this one on next week’s podcast, so tune in for that and check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
