Hugh Jackman Stars in ‘Real Steel’ Official Trailer
I saw the trailer for Real Steel at the beginning of the summer and I thought the concept was quite intriguing. As the fall season rapidly approaches us, I'm sort of anticipating this to kick off the autumn months with a bang.
Real Steel is set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech. 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 (Hugh Jackman) 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.
Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo and is set for an October 7th release date.
