Here it is: the rock 'em sock 'em, kick 'em in the bolts trailer for the robot-boxing epic Real Steel. And hot damn, this piece of junk kicks some serious metal butt. Watch the first trailer right now.
Try viewing this trailer in full screen — it looks really and high res:
We gotta admit, we're loving hearing Hugh Jackman cry out, "LET'S MAAAKE SOME MOOOONEEEEY!" This looks like a smashing good time. However, we're less fond of the tag line "Steel Gets Real." Ah well, we can't wait to get to know Hugh's little robot fighter (which we think might be this guy pre-paint job).
Along with the other robot ringers (like mohawk here).
Here's the Official Synopsis:
Hugh Jackman plays 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.
Real Steel will be released in theaters on October 7th 2011.
