The first trailer for the Hugh Jackman starring real life Rock ’em Sock ’em robots movie, Real Steel, has hit the net on Youtube! And it’s surprisingly awesome. It’s not at all what anyone expected, well at least for me — I didn’t really string it together but really its a futuristic Rocky type action-drama. But with robots beating the crap out of each other, minus Michael Bay! Pure awesomeness!
Helmed by Night At The Museum director Shawn Levy, Real Steel takes inspiration from the Richard Matheson short story “about a down-on-his-luck, slightly desperate journeyman who works in this robot boxing sport and who is desperately needing redemption and one last shot.” Which Levy promises will be “faithful to the [original Richard Matheson] story”, adding that it’s “more Rocky than Transformers”.
Check out the embedded trailer below, and as always enjoy! Cus I know I did!
