Release Dates Announced For APOLLO 18 And WARRIOR

Apollo 18 and Warrior have announced release dates!

Apollo 18 directed by Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego and produced by Timur Bekmambetov has been moved from its original March 4 release date. This is not too surprising for anyone seeing as how it was given a release date before it had a director. I am all for trying to get a film out to audiences quickly, but lets be realistic it is not always the best move. Suprisingly enought, it has only been moved back a month, to April 22. The film uses found footage to tell the story of a secret moon mission which resulted in an alien encounter.
Warrior directed by Gavin O’Connor (Pride and GloryMiracle) and starring Tom Hardy will hit theaters on September 9. 
Warrior is a completely different type of movie. The film also stars Nick Nolte and takes place in the world of mixed martial arts.  Below is the plot description.

Two brothers face the fight of a lifetime – and the wreckage of their broken family – within the brutal, high-stakes world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting in Lionsgate’s action/drama, WARRIOR.

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan, a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. 

But when Brendan’s unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.

Here is an image from Warrior. I am very excited to see both of these. Which one looks best to you?
