We've seen two trailers for Dreamworks' REAL STEEL so far (check out the latest HERE), and now we're getting a look at the official teaser poster, courtesy of ComingSoon.net. Obviously, if you don't know what the movie is about (robot boxing!) this makes it vaguely clear, although I'm surprised the marketing department didn't come up with something a bit more spectacular for their first poster. That said, it's still just a tease; a more detailed one should be available this summer.
A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech, Real Steel stars 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 (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.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo, Anthony Mackie and Kevin Durand, REAL STEEL opens on OCTOBER 7th.
