Two Quickie Clips of Robot Action from Real Steel


Two real short clips from Shawn Levy’s futuristic robot actioner “Real Steel”, starring Hugh Jackman have appeared online (via IO9). Check them out below.

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.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie, Hope Davis, James Rebhorn, Olga Fonda, Dakota Goyo, Julian Gant and directed by Shawn Levy.

    Whoa! Consider my mind blown! I’m also a little disapointed at the length of these clips… why would I ever pay to see the film in theatre after having just seen half the movie in clips? Hollywood…
