Real Steel's future world is tired of human boxers, so they turn to fighting robots. But even though it's a gritty, post-industrial dystopia, director Shawn Levy promises it'll have a lot of heart, and a shirtless Hugh Jackman. Spoilers ahead.
While working the red carpet for his movie Date Night, we grabbed director Shawn Levy for a few seconds to talk about his upcoming robot-boxing film Real Steel. We already know it might be a little like Rocky and that it's not based on the Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots Game, as some have claimed — but what else can the director tell us about his new futuristic film? Will Hugh Jackman be showing some skin? Because it's not really a dystopia if you have shirtless Hugh.
