Check This Out: Kick Ass New 'Real Steel' Poster with Hugh Jackman

Courage is Stronger than Steel. DreamWorks has unveiled the final poster for Shawn Levy's Real Steel, the robot boxing movie starring Hugh Jackman that we've been buzzing about for a while. Given that this flick will finally hit theaters in just over a month, they're heading into the home stretch and that includes debuting the final poster to compliment that fist-only teaser poster. I actually really like this poster, it's a kick ass design for a movie I'm still pretty damn excited about. While it would be great to see Evangeline Lilly or Dakota Goyo, who plays the kid in it, on the poster, I'm satisfied - it's a solid design. Check it out!
"The moment of walking in and seeing these robots, my jaw was on the floor," Jackman said previously. They used motion capture for scenes where robots are actually fighting (with Sugar Ray Leonard as the boxing adviser) and built practical robots for everything else. "There are some things only visual effects can pull off, but when you give an actor a real thing, in this case a real 8-foot-tall machine, to interact with and do dialogue opposite, you get a more grounded reality to the performance." They find Atom in a junkyard and hope to train to become the WRB champion. Real Steel hits theaters everywhere starting October 7th.

I fail to see how "kick ass" can be used to describe ANYTHING about this film.

Totally agree... The poster looks ok, the movie looks laughable.. I fail to see anything kick ass related to this movie. Ive said it before and will say it again major flop !!!

its the fun factor, i really believe it will be a "fun" movie to just enjoy. not poke and prod, but have fun. laught at the jokes, relish in the action and be taken in by the one-liners and honest story motive. nothing more, nothing less.

This is pretty ace. I think Jackman has another hit on his hands outside of the, "X-Men..." franchise!

A boxing movie with robots sounds as successful as combining cowboys with aliens.
