Watching a drama unfold on the big screen makes it even easier for viewers to relate to the characters, especially during climactic popcorn-eating scenes. Indulge in a cinematic experience with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to see Warrior, currently playing in movie theaters nationwide. This Groupon is valid for any two tickets booked through fandango.com, including the service charge.
Directed by Gavin O’Connor (Miracle), Warrior chronicles the gripping tale of ex-Marine Tommy Conlon, played by Tom Hardy (Inception), who returns to civilian life to contend for an international fighting championship. The percussive blows of realistic fight scenes soundtrack the film, and they are punctuated by breathless silences in moments of sheer drama, such as when Tommy encounters his estranged brother, played by Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom), a former fighter whose financial troubles have led him reluctantly back to the ring.
Cinephiles gnash their teeth as the two celluloid heroes toil toward their chance at glory, riches, and untold ice packs in the chain-link hexagon, all the while unearthing past conflicts between the two and their alcoholic-turned-Christian father, played by Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder). Watch the trailer for a brief look into the film’s taut storyline, kinetic training montages, and goose-bump-inducing score, which was created by playing the music from Chariots of Fire backward.
