Real Steel TrailerThe About face: A boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000-pound robots that look like humans do battle.
The Wild side: A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech, the movie 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.
