THIS MEANS WAR
TOM HARDY (Tuck) has quickly become one of Hollywood's most sought after actors.

Tommy Conlon, who is haunted by a tragic past. He returns home for the first
time in fourteen years to enlist the help of his father (Nolte) to train for
Sparta, the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. An ode
to redemption and reconciliation, Warrior is also a moving testament to the
enduring bonds of family.
Hardy stars in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy opposite Colin Firth and Gary Oldman,
who was Oscar nominated for his work in the picture. Based on the classic novel,
the international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War years of the
