Take a Quick Jab at New ‘Real Steel’ Pictures

When will man appreciate the gravity of the tragedy that exists in our mass exploitation of the robot race for voyeuristic entertainment?

Never. On that note, let’s enjoy the new Real Steel images. These robots are PUNCHING each other. But that’s fine, because they’re robots. They warrant no sympathy. They deserve no friendship.

But perhaps we should rethink that. Perhaps Hugh Jackman will rethink it for us, in his companionship with robo-underdog Atom, with whom former human boxer Jackman teams up to reign supreme in the Robot Fighting League. Perhaps it will be Jackman’s character’s wide-eyed son (played by another child actor named Dakota, but this one’s a dude) who inspires him to see beyond the sheath of metal and understand that machines were not made to serve man.

The below image depicts just one type of hard-hitting punch the movie will deliver. The other: a cold realization about love.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
