Real Steel doesn’t strike me as the sort of film that has fans scrambling for any bit of information that they can find. I mean, it’s not exactly the new Batman film, or The Hobbit, which garner fan rage or joy every time the role of Guy In Background #21 is cast. But if you’re a diehard Real Steel fan, keeping your metaphorical nose pressed to the internet in hopes of catching a glimpse of new information, then, congrats! The Japanese trailer recently hit the internet, and contains even more scenes of robo-boxing goodness.
Real Steel, directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum), tells the story of a future in which robot-boxing is the next big thing. Washed-up boxer Charlie (Hugh Jackman) builds a boxing robot with his son, and probably learns a heartwarming lesson about family in the process.
Rock-em Sock-em Robots: The Movie is due out October 2, 2011
