This year has been a good year for fight movies. To kick the year off there was the multi Oscar nominated and Oscar winning The Fighter. This week there is another film which looks to rival The Fighter, and dare I say it, be up there with Rocky. The film I am talking about is Warrior.
Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton and Nick Nolte star in this film about “two brothers facing the fight of a lifetime – and the wreckage of their broken family – within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)” (imdb.com)
Australians know who Joel Edgerton is, the rest of the world started taking notice after his performance in Animal Kingdom, but once Warrior hits screens, the whole world will definitely know who Joel Edgerton is!
I had a chance to talk to Joel about Warrior. I could have spoken to him for ages. He is one of the soundest guys, who deserves every bit of success! We chatted about the movie, what he’d fight for, how he deals with fame and his gratitude for being able to do what he loves. Check out the interview below:
