This film deserved to do better.
In 2007, any kid or adult kid-at-heart that ever turned a toy vehicle on four wheels into a robot on two legs ran to a movie theater to see Optimus…
It’s by far the best father-son fighting-robot movie I’ve seen this week.
Like Jane, except Russian. And arguably hotter.
Director: Shawn LevyCast: Hugh Jackman, Dakota GoyoSynopsis: A boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000-pound robots that look like humans do battle.
See what makes them tick.
Evangeline Lilly is best known for her starring role on ABC’s long-running sci-fi series “Lost.”
Which one has the robots, again?
Almost as fun as playing Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots alone by yourself in the dark.
‘Real Steel 2: Reel Steal’?
If you haven’t yet had your fill of robots kicking each other’s asses in movies then this Real Steel trailer is going to make you go cuckoo bananas.
Filming began yesterday on Hugh Jackman's robo-pugilism adventure Real Steel and we have the first set photos courtesy of USA Today. In the film, Jackman plays a washed up boxer who, along with his son, promotes and coaches a robotic fighter to win a boxing championship. We get a good glimpse at the robot, Noisy Boy, in the first pic and note that this is not a CG character. That's an honest-to-goodness robot pictured with Jackman. Sure, there is always the danger that it might go haywire and attack the crew, but it's still far safer than working with "Rampage" Jackson. Once his cold eyes are upon you, you're already dry-humped. You just don't know it yet.CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS AFTER THE JUMP…
Dakota is sacrificed to Hollywood.Dreamworks has been searching for some bright-eyed, innocent young person to fill the role of Hugh Jackman's son in Real Steel, and rascal Dakota Goyo emerged "victorious." He's not to be confused with Dakota Fanning, the states of North and South Dakota, or the Dakota Reach-Around, this thing that Wookie does. From THR:DreamWorks, making its first movie under its deal with Disney, issued a public casting call in early February. It also conducted open auditions in Chicago and New York, looking for someone to play a "street-smart, tough, charming kid with a hard, untrusting outer shell which hides a warm enthusiastic spirit beneath."And they had to go to Canada to find him. What, there aren't enough punkass little sh*ts in America to fit your desired Jackman spawn? Gimme five days and I'll give any kid you pick an untrusting outer shell. …The warm, enthusiastic spirit underneath I cannot guarantee.
