Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly and Dakota Goyo, is a film exploring the growing industry of the Robot Fighting League, which former regular boxer Charlie Kenton (Jackman) enters as a coach/operator to reclaim his glory days, and maybe make a little money for his struggling wife-like counterpart Bailey (Lilly). All the while, the estranged Charlie forms an unexpected relationship with both his son Max (Goyo) and new robot pal Atom (Atom).
Real Steel comes out next Friday, October 7, and is directed by Shawn Levy.
Let’s start this out with some substantial robot-on-robot violence. Charlie Kenton coaches his fighter through a successful round.
