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.
