Watch Robots Pound On Each Other In 'Real Steel' Featurette

See what makes them tick. [post-album postid="216901" item="4"]This behind the scenes look at Real Steel shows us exactly what makes the robots tick. Surprisingly, it's not Andy Serkis. Boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard is the man behind the mo-cap this time, choreographing fight moves with actual boxers (imagine if he played Gollum). Normally I'd make a joke about the spandex and motion-ball outfits, but I value my jaw so I'll let this one slide. Also featured are stars Hugh Jackman and Anthony Mackie, who do their best to act against nothing. I'm talking about the special effects, you guys. Not Evangeline Lilly.

Robot Nutshots Galore In ‘Real Steel’ Teaser Trailer

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. 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. Real Steel smashes into theaters Oct. 7, 2011.

Robots House Giant Monsters In 'Pacific Rim' Trailer

Suck it, monsters! The first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim has debuted and it is a real wake-up call for monsters from the deep. When gigantic creatures emerge from an intergalactic portal in the Pacific Ocean, they just assume that humans will let them destroy our best bridges and throw cars into the water. Think again, monsters. Little do they know that we possess the technology to make gigantic robot suits that will march right up to them and punch them in their monstrous faces. Didn't see that one coming, huh? Just wait until we figure out how to give swords to those robots. 'Merica!!


Eli Roth's 'Clown' Wished Into Being A Real Thing

"That's not funny, Daddy." A few years ago, filmmakers Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford posted a trailer for the fake Eli Roth-produced horror movie Clown to the Internet. Roth himself saw the trailer and said something along the lines of, "Hey, holy crap. I would make that film!" Thus, we proudly present the trailer for the actual Eli Roth-produced horror movie Clown. The film follows a dad who dons a cursed clown costume to entertain his son's birthday party, only to find that the costume can't be removed and is taking possession of its human host. Silly concept with a brilliant execution. This trailer reveals a movie far scarier than it should be. Seriously creepy.


'Man Of Steel' Teases Us With Very Little Man-Of-Steeling

And it condones hitchhiking. The teaser(s) for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel have found their way online and all of online is all like, 'What the Hell?!" Instead of seeing a super-powered man throw around cars hide his identity behind stylish frames, we see him working on a Deadliest Catch boat while he gets some dadly advice from his biological, Russell Crowe.  Those scenes must focus on the year he decided to find himself and act like Wolverine. Second teaser below because the first one wasn't Kevin Costner-y enough.


Flying Robots Perform The 'James Bond' Theme Song, For Realz

I don't say "for realz" often, so you know this is legit. Normally when you hear the words "flying" and "robots" you immediately think of some crappy Michael Bay movie. But today, when I mention flying robots, I'm not talking about some CGI bullshit. I'm talking about honest-to-goodness flying robots. And rather than causing death from above, as flying robots are wont to do, these little animatronic bastards are performing the theme song from the James Bond movies. What an age we live in. For this years TED 2012 conference, Engineers at the University of Pennsylvania pre-programmed the quadrotors to play the iconic song using instruments such as a a keyboard, cymbals, and a giant guitar custom made out of a couch frame. After all, its hard to play a regular guitar while you're flying through the air. Just as John Denver. Zing! What, too soon? (EW)
