New Clips from Real Steel All About Robots
03.16.11 by BJSprecher
Two (extremely short) new clips from director Shawn Levy's (Date Night) new sci-fi sports movie, Real Steel, have surfaced online. Though they don't reveal much of anything about the movie, and title star Hugh Jackman is nowhere to be seen, the clips do contain footage not previously seen in the teaser trailer for the movie, giving sci-fi fans a quick glimpse at "Noisy Boy," the underdog boxing robot at the heart of the movie, as he does a little shadow boxing, as well as a few quick shots of some of the other fighting robots, including one that looks eerily similar to a Rock'em Sock'em Robot.
Real Steel was written by John Gatins, from a story by Dan Gilroy and Jeremy Leven. The movie follows ex-fighter Charlie Kenton (Jackman) as he cleans up and trains a junked robot ("Noisy Boy") to fight on the Robot Boxing circuit while getting to know the son (Dakota Goyo) he never knew that he had. Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie, Hope Davis, James Rebhorn and Olga Fonda also star.
