Somebody heard our complaints about not enough robot fighting in that and released a (probably bootleg) teaser for Real Steel chock full o’ robot punching. Yes, the movie based on the old Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robot toys is really happening, and it might even be fun to watch.
The film is a boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000-pound robots that look like humans do battle. But more specifically, the film is also about a father-son (Dakota Goyo playing the kid) team training an unusual robot to win a boxing championship after Jackman’s fall from glory as an actual human boxer. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Hope Davis, James Rebhorn and our new collective crush, Olga Fonda. [ThePlaylist]
Check out the video below to see Hugh Jackman with a 5 o’clock shadow, wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses, and grunting “Bring it!” I don’t know, you should add a motorcycle. Just to be sure. Also, when he yells “Let’s make some money!” I’m pretty sure he was just talking to his agent.
