The first trailer for Tom Hardy's mixed martial arts drama, Warrior, has landed online.
The movie sees Hardy and Joel Edgerton (Attack of the Clones, Animal Kingdom) play brothers who go head to head in a UFC-style fighting competition.
Edgerton's character hogs the trailer: his reluctant bruiser is torn between supporting his family financially and getting professionally pummelled.
Hardy, who's hulked up impressively again for the role, is trained by his former-alcoholic father, played by the inimitably gruff Nick Nolte.
The focus seems to be on metaphorical emotional bruises over the literal ones, although there's the promise of plenty of intense grappling action.

Warrior is released on 23 September 2011.
