“I’m Sugar Ray Steel!” – New Real Steel Featurette

As the great Ric Flair likes to say to his wannabe opponents “To be The Man…You have to Beat The Man (Whoo!!!!)” In Dreamwork’s Reel Steel to be that man or 8 foot Robot you have to box like the man, Sugar Ray Leonard! Hugh Jackman’s character Charlie Kenton  is a washed out top boxer and his movements control these big 2000pound bits of robotic steel and if Jackman is to convince us the viewers he must act like a pro boxer and when Shawn Levy told Jackman the good news that Sugar Ray Leonard is the man to help him lets just say his jaw dropped like one of those looney Tunes cartoon characters! Via the good folks at Yahoo Dreamworks have released anew featurette looking  at how the legendary boxer got involved in the movie and how tried to make him look like a pro.

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.
