Hugh Jackman fair loves his steel and especially in 2011, with The Wolverine (he has titanium skeleton) and REAL STEEL and Disney/Dreamworks have released its first trailer. This looks cheesy robofun and today is a robot day, so wheres Craig Charles? This is a mashup of Transformers meets Robot Wars minus Craig Charles, I think this maybe based on an actual childrens toy(Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots toy ), but its actually a based on a short story written by Richard Matheson who wrote I Am Legend, The Box, Duel!
REAL STEEL is directed by Shawn Levy and co-stars Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Hope Davis, James Rebhorn and will be released on October 7th 2011.
A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback
