The Men of Warrior

Lionsgate and publisher Insight Editions are thrilled to announce “The Men Of Warrior.” Featuring fine art portraits by acclaimed photographer Tim Palen, the book is a companion to the highly anticipated film WARRIOR, which will be in theaters everywhere on September 9, 2011.

“The Men Of Warrior” features stunning photographs of the actors and fighters featured in the film, including Tom Hardy, who also wrote the book’s foreword, Joel Edgerton, Erik Apple, Nate Marquardt, and Ron “RJ” Messenger. In its pages, Hardy and Edgerton show off their hard-earned fighting bodies and bloodied upper lips, capturing the tough and dramatic world of WARRIOR in a series of iconic images, all of which are poster-worthy.

Said CEO of the book’s publisher Insight Editions Raoul Goff of the book’s release, "Insight Editions is proud to include Tim Palen to our list of award-winning photographers as we release the larger-than-life fine art photography book 'Men of Warrior.'"

The 128 page book will be on shelves at brick and mortar book sellers nationwide beginning one month before the film’s release, on August 9th, and is currently available for pre-sale on Amazon, Borders, and Barnes & Noble’s websites.

About The Film

Rising stars Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton command the screen as two estranged brothers facing the fight of a lifetime­ in Lionsgate’s WARRIOR, a moving, inspirational action drama from acclaimed director Gavin O’Connor (Miracle).

Haunted by a tragic past, Marine Tommy Conlon (Hardy) returns home for the first time in fourteen years to enlist the help of his father (Nick Nolte) to train for Sparta, the biggest winner-takes-all event in mixed martial arts history. A former wrestling prodigy, Tommy blazes a path toward the championship while his brother, Brendan (Edgerton), an ex-fighter-turned teacher, returns to the ring in a desperate bid to save his family from financial ruin. But when Brendan’s unlikely, underdog rise sets him on a collision course with the unstoppable Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront each other and the forces that pulled them apart, facing off in the most soaring, soul stirring, and unforgettable climax that must be seen to be believed.

A rousing ode to redemption, reconciliation and the power of the human spirit, WARRIOR is also a moving testament to the enduring bonds of family. WARRIOR stars Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom, Star Wars: Episode III), Tom Hardy (the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Black Hawk Down), Jennifer Morrison ("House", Star Trek) and Nick Nolte (Tropic Thunder, The Thin Red Line). The film is directed by Gavin O'Connor; screenplay by Gavin O’Connor & Anthony Tambakis & Cliff Dorman and story by Gavin O'Connor & Cliff Dorfman. Lionsgate and Mimran Schur Pictures present a Lionsgate / Mimran Schur Pictures production. A Solaris Entertainment and Filmtribe production.

About The Photographer

Tim Palen is an American photographer and Lionsgate’s Chief Marketing Officer. Palen’s photography has appeared in Premiere, Paper, Vibe, Redbook, Penthouse, The New York Observer, The New Yorker, and Flaunt magazines. Palen’s photography for movie posters has garnered several Hollywood Reporter Key Art Awards. He was named by Entertainment Weekly as one of the "50 Smartest People in Hollywood," as well as making Fast Company's 2011 list of the 100 Most Creative People in Business.

Palen is known throughout the movie marketing industry for his daring approaches to film promotion, most specifically his provocative one-sheet posters, many featuring his own photography. Examples of his work include the arresting imagery used to promote the SAW and HOSTEL horror franchises, and the iconic portraits he created on behalf of W, PRECIOUS, and FOR COLORED GIRLS. As Paula Burr has written, Palen’s movie poster photography attempts “to boil [the image] down to the essence of the film. It is all about finding simplicity, a singular iconic image, something that evokes emotion.”
