Heavy Metal Rules "Real Steel"

Sneak Peek new posters supporting DreamWorks upcoming science fiction motion picture "Real Steel", starring Hugh Jackman, based on the 1956 short story "Steel" by Richard Matheson :

" the year 2020, robots have replaced humans in boxing. 'Charlie Kenton is 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..."

Screenplay for "Real Steel" is by John Gatins, from a story by Dan Gilroy and Jeremy Leven.

The film uses modern animatronic robots blended with motion capture technology.

"Real Steel" is scheduled to be released by Touchstone Pictures in both conventional and IMAX theatres, October 7, 2011.
