Robot boxing drama Real Steel will be out in about another week, but just in case your love for Hugh Jackman and/or Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots is such that you simply can’t stand to wait that long, DreamWorks has released five new clips (totaling a little under four minutes) and a featurette from the movie.
Directed by Shawn Levy, Real Steel unfolds in a future in which human boxing has been rendered obsolete by the rise of robot boxing. Charlie (Jackman) is a former fighter and current small-time promoter who gets one last chance to prove himself when he works with his son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a robot for a championship match. Watch the videos after the jump.

The Terminator meets The Champ. C-3PO vs. R2-D2. I see the potential of a sci-fi action movie coupled with the predictable, yet effective, heart of a underdog sports movie.

Check out the clip, featuring stars Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly and Anthony Mackie, after the jump. Read More »
