Max Steel

If The LEGO Movie, Transformers and G.I. Joe just isn't enough toy based movies for your kids to enjoy, then you're probably in the mood for Max Steel. The first photos from the film based on the toy and animated series of the same name have arrived showing off Ben Winchell as Max McGrath, a teenage boy who learns he has hidden powers that when combined with an extraterrestrial friend named Steel, (see, it's the title!) produce the universe's most powerful energy. Andy Garcia and Maria Bello also star in the film, because everyone needs a paycheck. This looks pretty cheesy, and likely just for kids, but they don't really make films like this just for the young ones anymore, so maybe it'll be fun for them. Photos below!

Here's the first set of photos for Stewart Hendler's Max Steel adaptation, originally from Moviefone:

Max Steel is directed by Stewart Hendler (Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn) and written by Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World). Based on a toy and animated series, the film chronicles the adventures of 16-year old Max McGrath (Ben Winchell) and alien companion Steel, who must harness and combine their tremendous new powers to evolve into the turbo-charged superhero Max Steel. As these two unlikely friends struggle to accept their oddly connected fates, they begin to uncover unimaginable secrets, working together to find the truth, and fighting the mysterious forces threatening their world. Ana Villafane, Andy Garcia and Maria Bello star in the film Open Roads Films releases in theaters everywhere sometime in 2015 next year.

    I didn't think Max Steel was still around... I remember having one of his toys as a kid but I never really liked him, and considering it's from the studio who borough Transformers and GI Joe I am not expecting much. Also I'm fairly sure he's supposed to be a little older than the every movie generic teen age range(15-18)
    • Phillip Gockel
      They rebooted the series a couple years back with a somewhat different storyline, so that could be your confusion.
      • Fidel Reyes
        I see, reboot looks cool. But they should have kept the angle of him being out of high school(older) would have(in my opinion) probably added good leverage to the movie but that's just me. Nevertheless I am partly interested since I had Max Steel action figures as a kid.
  • JBrotsis
    Never heard of Max Steel and yet was a kid during the cartoon transformers and GI Joe series. Suit looks cool though.

    You know what cartoon series they need to put to film is Street Sharks! Hell, I'd LOVE to see a team up movie of Street Sharks and TMNT!!! Their origin stories are practically the same

    First time seeing anything on this, but looks interesting. The pictures give off the same feeling as Forward Unto Dawn, which I loved, even though I'm a huge Halo fan. Another movie for me to look forward to.
  • John
    Yeah, they must of rebooted this series or something cause I don't remember ANYTHING about aliens or some silver Iron Man knockoff suit. If I recall correctly, the OG Max Steel was about some extreme sports dude that gets infected by some virus that gives him superpowers and does secret missions for the govt.
    • C.Alexander
      That sounds like Action Man. A show similar to that.
      • John Doe
        Yeah, pretty much. LOL
