DreamWorks has unleashed this new “Main Event” featurette for the upcoming sci-fi action movie, Real Steel starring Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Hope Davis, Dakota Goyo and Anthony Mackie.
Read the synopsis and check out the clip after the jump.
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.
The film is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum franchise, DateNnight)
Real Steel is scheduled to light up theaters October 7th ,2011.
