A 2015 film that is probably flying low on everyone’s radar is Jane Got A Gun. Starring Natalie Portman, the film has been afflicted with an assortment of problems that includes the film’s original director Lynne Ramsay dropping out of the last minute, Jude Law dropping out because he only signed on because Ramsay was directing, actors dropping out because of scheduling problems, and a lawsuit, not to mention the three times that the release date has been pushed back.
But somehow Gavin O’Connor was able to put the film together. Unfortunately it is scheduled for a September release, but despite that I am very intrigued to see what the director was able to accomplish with all the setbacks the film has experienced. And now we are getting our first look at the film with some new images from Empire. Hit the jump to check them out.
Warrior Directed by Gavin O’Conner
Starring Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton, Nick Nolte, Jennifer Morrison, Frank Campana, Kevin Dunn and Kurt Angle
Release Date: September 9, 2011
Warrior is a convincing look at a father and his two sons drowning in innumerable personal grief and universal issues, which result in each of them finding out who they truly are and were. Here is a film about the exploration of our true selves disguised as a mixed martial arts (MMA) movie. It is a visceral and blunt exploration into the anatomy of the alpha male. The subjects are the Conlons, from a working-class Pennsylvania town, who attempt to attain through any means necessary an anchor in which they can cling to when the emergence of reality becomes so widespread and ruthless. The Conlons, Paddy (Nick Nolte) along with his two estranged sons Brendan and Tommy (Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy), decided to dismiss reality and walk away from it, never imagining it would come back and eventually start a war between father and sons and brother against brother.
