"Champions aren't born. They're made." Holy crap is that super Shredder back from the dead?! No wait, it's just some gigantic robot fist punching through a boxing ring, hanging onto some heavy cable. The first teaser poster for Shawn Levy's robot fightin' movie Real Steel has debuted on ComingSoon. Everyone loves a good look at a poster, so here's one for ya. It's pretty basic and I prefer the viral Japanese poster more, but this still elicits some heavy metal promises. The first full trailer for Real Steel was debuted a couple of weeks ago, so check that out of if you haven't seen it yet. And let us know what you think of this new teaser poster!
Click on the poster below to see the full-size version on ComingSoon, if you want to see all the gritty details.
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.

This movie seems like a ripoff in general..

they ripped off all of Rockem Sockem Robots, i don't think one iron man tag line will make a difference........

I like it. Every film nowadays is using a medium for the story...originality is kinda hard to come by these days.

This is basically the same as the the Twilight Zone episode called 'steel'. It was set in the future where humans were banned from fighting so they built robots for boxing.

And THAT was based off a Richard Matheson short story.

This film will be a goddamn hurricane of shit. For a start, what a staggeringly lazy premise. Combine that with a director who is just awful (Just Married Cheaper by the Dozen! The Pink Panther!) and one of the worst posters this side of a Conan the Barbarian reboot, and we should have an excellent contender for worst movie of the year. Seriously though, go read Shaun Levy's filmography on IMDB, I'm pretty sure the guy has no soul.
