What happens when you mix Hugh Jackman, boxing, a father/son tale, and Rock ”Em Sock ‘Em Robots? You get something that looks a little like the trailer for Real Steel. Jackman stars as a title contender who loses his shot when robots replace humans in the ring. With the help of his son (Dakota Goyo) he gets a new shot by building his own fighting robot. The film is based on a short story by Richard Matheson and also stars Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie, Phil LaMarr, Hope Davis and Evangeline Lilly. The opening bell will ring when it hits theaters everywhere this October.
