Four Robot Boxing Contenders Appear in New Posters for 'Real Steel'
Between the teaser trailer, a more impressive full-length theatrical trailer, cool behind-the-scenes featurette, and my visit to the set, the robot boxing flick Real Steel has become one of my more anticipated films of the fall, even if it's not part of the standard push of awards contenders that comes around this season. Now a new batch of posters have surfaced highlighting the metal-smashing fighters of the film including the beefy bot Ambush, the Roman-warrior looking Midas, the Shogun-helmeted Noisy Boy and our hero bot Atom controlled by Hugh Jackman and his son in the film. Check out the robot posters below!

A boxing drama set in the future where 2000 lbs robots controlled by humans do battle. Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who makes a comeback with a scrapmetal bot named Atom.
Real Steel is directed by Canadian family filmmaker Shawn Levy, of Just Married, Cheaper by the Dozen, The Pink Panther, Night at the Museum, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and Date Night most recently. The screenplay was written by John Gatins (Hard Ball, Coach Carter, Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story) from a story created by Dan Gilroy & Jeremy Leven (My Sister's Keeper, The Notebook). DreamWorks/Disney are bringing Real Steel to theaters everywhere starting October 7th later this fall.
