Damn, September flew by fast, and as we head into my favorite month of October, we get a little closer to ROBOT BATTLE!! Real Steal comes to the big screen October 7th with Hugh Jackman leading his destructo-bot Atom to victory against a lineup of machines programmed to pummel, crush and flatten their opponents, all for the adulation of the crowds and a hefty stack of prize cash, to be sure. Here's the skinny...
A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-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 brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
