Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman focusing on how robots and not humans do the boxing in the future; it’s science fiction, what can you expect? Anyways, the movie is based on the 1956 short story “Steel” by Richard Matheson. And if you’re wondering, they’re already in working to develop a sequel. Look for it in theaters on October 7th. For more information, visit the Real Steel official website.
Robots have replaced humans in boxing. Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) loses a chance to become a boxing champion when robots take over, and he becomes a small-time promoter. When he has difficulty making a living, he reluctantly teams up with his son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build a robot that can contend for the championship. [Wiki]
