Full Japanese Trailer for Shawn Levy's 'Real Steel' Robot Boxing Flick
"Our main event features pain!!" Another new full-length Japanese trailer (in English) has popped up online for Shawn Levy's Real Steel, the big boxing robot spectacular hitting theaters this fall. We get to spend a lot more time with the 'bot they're training in the second half with this, and it still looks great, like an inspirational underdog story but with some badass fight sequences and Hugh Jackman in it! We've already seen the first full US trailer, but I'm already at the point where I don't need to see anymore, I'm curious enough to want to go see this anyway. Evangeline Lilly and Dakota Goyo also star in this. Enjoy!
Watch the new Japanese trailer for Shawn Levy's Real Steel:
"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.

Had absolutely no interest after watching the generic US trailer(s) but this one makes it look like it might actually be worthwhile. Also seeing how different Japanese subtitles are from the actual dialogue is always entertaining.

I think I've watched a Twilight Zone episode that was similer? Looks so so
