Teaser Debut: Real Steel

The teaser trailer for Shawn Levy’s fighting robots movie (no, not that one) Real Steel has debuted online. It stars Hugh Jackman as a former boxer who “trains” a scrappy young robot to become a champ.

In case you are getting lost in the mire of all these new robot flicks, here are the films Real Steel is not:

It’s not Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse.

It’s not Steve Pink’s How to Survive a Robot Uprising.

It’s not Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

It’s not Burlesque.

Check out the trailer for Real Steel and share your thoughts below!


The film imagines a future in which there is no such thing as human boxers, as they have all been replaced by mechanized fighters. Although motion capture technology will be used on the robots during the fighting sequences (legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard is working as an adviser), 19 animatronic robots were created for the rest of the film.

Jackman plays an ex-fighter who bonds with his 11-year-old son (Dakota Goyo) while grooming a junk-yard robot named Atom for the World Robot Boxing league. The film also stars Evangeline Lilly, Anthony Mackie and Kevin Durand.

Real Steel hits Australian cinemas late 2011.

Discuss: Does this look too much like Transformers for your liking?
