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. Directed by Shawn Levy, it stars Hugh Jackman as a robot boxing coach who teams up with his son to make their mechanical heavy weight a championship winner. Supposedly they used mostly practical effects in the film, but it appears to be mainly CG to my eye. They shouldn’t have cropped Jackman’s hair so short if they wanted him to look real.
