New Real Steel Main Event Featurette

The futuristic robot boxing drama, Real Steel (Oct. 7), has a nice “Main Event” clip, showing off the fighting bots, the steely environments, and the sexy eye candy. It looks like The Champ meets Rocky meets Transformers meets Tron Legacy. No wonder Digital Domain did the VFX along with Legacy Effects, New Deal Studios, and Giant Studios. Hugh Jackman plays a down and out trainer who hooks up with his long-lost son to rehabilitate a has-been bot for the championship. Directed by Night at the Museum’s Shawn Levy.
