No matter how many times we hear about it, we're still not sure what to make of a live-action movie about Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots. We like the game and we like Hugh Jackman, but then again, the concept makes about as much sense as a Victorian drama based on Connect Four.
The story of 'Real Steel' revolves around a washed-up boxer in the year 2020 who becomes a small-time promoter when giant robots replace humans in the ring. Down on his luck and low on money, the former boxer dusts off a lowly junkbot and trains it to become the animatronic heavyweight champion of the world.
Regardless of whether that sounds awesome or ridiculous, we now have our first look at the latest one-sheet from 'Real Steel' to get us excited for its October 7 release date. So click through to check out Hugh Jackman floating like a butterfly along with the latest trailer and judge for yourself.
Still waiting to see this for ourselves before casting the first stone, but at least it looks like 'The Godfather' compared to that 'Battleship' trailer.
So what do you think about 'Real Steel?'
