Robot boxing? Sure.

The picture above comes from Disney, who will be releasing Dreamworks’ Real Steel, a movie starring Hugh Jackman as a former boxer who teams up with his estranged son to build a bot to fight in the new sport of robot boxing. I really hope that he gets a chance to actually fight a robot, though. Wouldn’t that be the whole point?

Was this movie once an adaptation of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, by the way?
