Watch Robots Pound On Each Other In ‘Real Steel’ Featurette

6 photosEvangeline Lilly

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.
