Comic Books, Film
DreamWorks Pictures has premiered a new poster for Real Steel, the rock ‘em, sock ‘em robot-boxing drama from director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) and star Hugh Jackman.
Set in the near-future where boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel follows Charlie Kenton (Jackman), a washed-up fighter who lost his shot at a title when 2,000-pound, 8-foot-tall robots took over the ring. Now a small-time promoter barely scraping by, he reluctantly teams with his estranged teenage son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender.
Real Steel, which also stars Evangeline Lilly, Anthony Mackie and Kevin Durand, opens on Oct. 7.
