Real Steel - film trailer

Real Steel poster

REAL Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8ft-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next.

The film begins when Charlie hits rock bottom. He reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

The film is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum and Date Night) and based on a short story by Richard Matheson (I Am Legend and Stir of Echoes novels).

UK release: 7 October 2011
