Earlier today the first trailer for Shawn Levy’s latest film Real Steel was released. It was surprisingly better that what we expected and gave us an idea of what the Transformers would look like if you stuck them into a boxing ring. DreamWorks has just released four new images from the film, some of which were taken directly from the trailer. Take a look…
A gritty, white-knuckle, 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 brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
Real Steel opens in theaters everywhere on October 7, 2011.
