I was super excited the first time I saw a preview for Real Steel. There is something very initriguing to me about large, life-like fighting robots. As if that wasn't enough, Hugh Jackman stars in Real Steel. I don't think he has been in a single movie that I have disliked. Have you seen a preview yet? Here is the latest preview (note that you will have to visit my website to see the video if you are reading this via email or RSS):
Here is the official description of Real Steel:
"A 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 no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback."
