Check out the exciting new featurette for Real Steel, featuring director Shawn Levy, and actors Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly revealing some new bits and pieces of the world of Real Steel. Also included are some new scenes and a short behind-the-scenes glimpse at the motion capture filming process.
The official synopsis:
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 is set to hit the theaters on October 7th.
