Japanese Real Steel trailer shows the human side of robot fighting

Jun. 22, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Out of all the movies coming out, it's hard to find one with a stranger concept than REAL STEEL. A world where human boxing is outlawed, so people build giant, punching robots to slug it out? Uhh alright.

There's a new Japanese trailer out for it which you can see below. It focuses on Hugh Jackman trying to develop his relationship with his son via violent robots. It has such memorable lines as:

"What are we looking for?"

"Anything I can use to put a fighting robot together."

I don't think I could say that with a straight face, so props to Jackman.

But who knows, REAL STEEL could surprise us all and do something interesting with an exceedingly lame concept. Until then, we'll just have to judge it by the trailers.

Extra Tidbit: Yes, there is a SEPARATE Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots movie in the works.

I think this movie just out-dumbed Cowboys and Aliens for worst-looking summer movie, although I'm gonna see C+A

I'm a fan of Hugh Jackman, and of boxing movies, and even of robot movies generally speaking, but I just can't help but think this looks absolutely terrible.

I hope it's not, cause as I said I like Jackman (and Mackie, Lilly and Durand for that matter), but the potential for not just bad, but REALLY bad is definitely there imo.

Agree with slimbo. If I were a kid, I'd probably be excited as hell for this movie, and the PG-13 rating will probably work against it.

Anyone over the age of 12 should have no desire to see this movie. Surprised it's PG13 and not PG or even G.

Huh. If this movie is even remotely cool, you can color me the most shocked motherfucker on the planet. Because it looks, honestly, retarded.
