About Real Steel
A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near future, where the
sport of boxing has gone hi-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his
chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over
the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just
enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from
one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock
bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota
Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the
brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all
odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
DreamWorks Pictures presents Real Steel, directed by Shawn Levy, produced by Don Murphy, Susan Montford and
Shawn Levy, with a screenplay by John Gatins, story by Dan Gilroy and
Jeremy Leven, and based in part on the short story "Steel" by Richard
Matheson. Real Steel releases in theaters on October 7, 2011.
