Fans of celeb Dad, Hugh Jackman, will be excited to see him tackle a new role in Real Steel which opens in theaters everywhere on October 7th. Here’s the official movie poster below. My sources working on this movie, tell me this film will appeal to the entire family so I’ll be excited to see what Parents & their tweens or teens think of it once it releases.
The combination of steamy Hugh on screen for the ladies and the fighting & robot action for the guys sounds like a hit to me.
Here’s the official scoop from DreamWorks Pictures:
A action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-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 no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
“Real Steel” is directed by Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum” franchise and “Date Night”).
