When it was announced last year that Hugh Jackman had signed onto a futuristic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots kind of flick titled Real Steel, I’m sure more than a few eyebrows were raised. Mine included. Now that the first trailer for it is out over at yahoo! Movies, it’s very Million Dollar Baby / The Fighter / Cinderella Man / Rocky / every other kind of boxing movie meets Transformers. But it looks interesting. The synopsis, via Wikipedia: In the near future, robots have replaced humans in boxing. Charlie Kenton (Jackman) loses a chance to become a boxing champion when robots take over, and he becomes a small-time promoter. When he has difficulty making a living, he reluctantly teams up with his son Max (Goyo) to build a robot that can contend for the championship. Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo, Anthony Mackie and Kevin Durand co-star. Real Steel will be out on October 7th.
