A action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-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. 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 no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
Oh my!! If my wife has talked about Hugh Jackman once she has said his name one thousand times…even in her sleep! She just returned from #DisneyDreamWorksEvent for the press junket for Real Steel. Now don’t get me wrong, there may be a little man crush on him over here too….I mean look at him sometimes he has metal coming out of his hands but this time he has a fighting robot. Fighting Robots….I am in. I have seen a couple of previews and I can’t wait to see the movie when it comes out on October 7th.
Speaking of man crush, what about the fact that Sugar Ray Leonard was a consultant on the movie. Can you imagine a robot with the moves of Sugar? How about the fact that Kate from Lost…better know as Evangaline Lily…is looking very Fabulous (Southernbella is right behind me or I would just say HOT!) in the film.
Just Sayin, I can’t wait to see this film. I have not been this excited since M*A*S*H…LOL Harry Potter!
