Warrior - Joel Edgerton

Warrior (2011) posterRoadshow Films has announced that star Joel Edgerton will attend the Australian premiere of Gavin O’Connor’s film Warrior, co-starring Tom Hardy.

The premiere will take place on Sunday, 16 October 2011, with guests due to arrive at 6pm at Event Cinemas on George Street in Sydney.

In Warrior, the youngest son (Tom Hardy) of an alcoholic former boxer (Nick Nolte) returns home, where he’s trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament – a path that puts the fighter on a collision course with his older brother (Joel Edgerton).

Edgerton’s star has been steadily climbing over the last few years, following his appearances in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, The Square, Australia’s Animal Kingdom and the forthcoming, The Great Gatsby.

Warrior is released on 27 October 2011 in Australia from Roadshow Films.
