Dreamworks have released a new featurette for Real Steel which stars Hugh Jackman, Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Hope Davis, James Rebhorn with Shawn Levy (date night)directing. Though I enjoyed The Fighter when it comes to boxing related flicks I just cannot seem to fathom this movie, one minute im really interested next im not despite been fascinated with robots since a early age. I love the prospect of seeing 8 foot robots fighting but I cant pinpoint the reason why im not looking forward to this, if you’ve ever read 2000AD the robots remind you of the ABC Warriors, now there’s a movie I would love to see!
This new featurette goes behind the scene giving us some info on the characters, the story and the use of motion capture especially in the use of boxing legend Sugar ray leonard. Hopefully the next time we see more footage of this film i will be in a more sombre mood to enjoy this flick when it comes out on 14th October.
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.
