Wolverine Co-Stars In New Film With Rock-'Em Sock-'Em Robots


The trailer for Real Steel came out today, satisfying the growing public outcry to see actor Hugh Jackman train a boxing robot.

Real Steel, the latest project from director Shawn Levy (Night At The Museum, Date Night) released a teaser trailer today. The film stars Hugh Jackman, who will follow Real Steel with another crack at Wolverine.

Like the 1963 Twilight Zone episode "Steel," Real Steel is based on the 1956 short story "Steel" by Richard Matheson. The film tells the story of a world in which boxing has fallen to robots, and Jackman will play a former boxer who turns trainer to one of these rock-'em sock-'ems.

Keep a sharp eye on the trailer to catch Lost alumni Evangeline Lilly (Kate) and Kevin Durand (Martin Keamy).

Real Steel has a scheduled release date of October 7, 2011.

Two words: Robots. Fighting.
Robots NOT fighting with chainsaws or other awesome weapons. I'm pretty sure the whole point of the original story was that the robot boxer eventually becomes outmoded and just can't fight revealing that things didn't actually change for boxers.

Also Real Steel is a retarded name.

Serious WTF is this raging Bots? I assuming that it must be so far into the future that making a robot is so dull that making them fight each other is the only interesting thing to do with robots.

Yeah, but in a ring? Who cares?

When I watch robots fighting, I wanna see 'm throw cars and smash through buildings, not fight in a ring.

Damn, I was hoping it was actually Wolverine with actual Rock-'em Sock-'em Robots. That's disappointing.

Didnt you hear? they're making I think four hasbro games into movies. I know the other one is Battleships.


I always dislike titles like this. It makes me think Wolverine the character will be in it. Hugh Jackman had done other movies you know. As for the movie... I'm not expecting much. I know hte episode of The Twilight Zone its talking about, and I've seen it (I watch alot of old TV and Scifi channel), and to me that, that will always be the best telling of the essential story here. Besides... unless a human gets into the ring or has to fight these robots when they go mad, its not that interesting. I mean... yeah, its cool when Robots fight each other while humans struggle for survival, but not for entertainment like this.

And Micheal Bay has yet to figure that one out.
You'd think he would have, had he seen the Transformers animated movie.

Crowd... crowd never changes.

I don't know this looks pretty stupid to me, a way to cash in on transformers' popularity (yeah it may be based on an old short story but how come it's coming out at this exact time).

Looks... interesting... I guess...

I went slack-jawed when I read the Rock-'Em Sock-'Em robots title. I literally thought they made a movie adaptation of the first button mashing Red vs Blue, plastic robot game.

Was it just me, or did Hugh Jackman with a haircut look like Robert Downey Jr.?

At least he got Optimus Prime sacrificing his self correct.
Touche my good man, touche :)
