Based on the short story “Steel” by Richard Matheson (I Am Legend), Real Steel follows a human boxer (Hugh Jackman) made obsolete by the popularity of robot fighters. He sees a chance to get back into the game by building and training his own robot.
And, I gotta say, despite the involvement of Shawn Levy (Date Night) I really like this trailer, mostly based on Hugh Jackman and the many instances of robots punching one another. Lookit: one has a mohawk!
If the robots can talk, Real Steel has potential to be a personal favorite.
