Meet the robots of Real Steel in new character posters

Sep. 12, 2011by:

It's a strange metric to use, but if we were ranking upcoming movies by skepticism, REAL STEEL would be near the top of my list next to BATTLESHIP and ASTEROIDS.

The robot punch-a-thon has just debuted four character posters (via ComingSoon) which are all the rage right now. They give us a look at some of the robotic personalities we'll find in the film. I don't think we're supposed to know details about most of them, but I know Atom is the one Hugh Jackman and his kid build and train.

As for the others? After seeing the intricate work that went into the design of each Transformer in those films, it's a bit off-putting to see robots that look far more simplistic, like art drawn by a five year old brought to life.

I do like Noisy Boy.

I don't care how touching any aspect of the story is, this is ridiculous. Maybe if they would have taken a different tone with it, but poor hugh jackman pooring his heart into this piece of junk

Call me crazy, but I'm curious/interested to check this out. I don't see how boxing robots in the future is any more silly or ridiculous than other future games portrayed in the future like Death Race, Gamer, or Hunger Games.

Spielberg and Zemekis produced this also. Surprising.

To all th negative comments:

I felt the exact same way as you guys did. I thought this movie looked stupid.
But, i got to see it at a free screening with my friend so I said the hell, I'll check it out. It's free.
And it was surprisingly really good.
The relationship and chemistry between Hugh Jackmans character and his son is very well done and touching. The story is kind of typical underdog story, but it works.
Plus if you like robots fighting robots, tthen you'll like this.

It reminded me of that old tv

It reminded me of that old tv show "Battlebots" or whatever it was called.

This movie looks terrible. Hugh Jackman why? Quit making shitty movies and get to working on 'The Wolverine' and other Wolverine like films.

I hope they do a game out of this. It sounds like it would be interesting. Make a bot and then send him into a ring to duke it out with other bots. It will be interesting to see if this is in fact any good.

Ambush looks like a Rock'em Sock'em.
Agreed with the greens - it looks like silly father/son fun a la "Over the Top". Also, to make another Stallone connection, anyone notice that Atom's (I also thought it was "Adam") strategy is exactly like Rocky's?

I honestly thought the main robot's name was "Adam" and o thought "what a retarded name for a robot." Now that I see his name is "Atom" that's even worse, somehow.
I'm with soloist though. I think it looks like stupid fun. It's like goddamn Over the fucking Top but with goddamn boxing robots instead of arm wrestling.

I don't know how to break this to you, but these robots look WAY better then anything in that childhood-raping abomination of a Transformers series.

Are you serious? Hate on Transformers all you want, but bashing on anything even remotely close to the visuals and intricate details of the bots themselves just makes you sound whiny. I'm not saying the films were good. I'm just saying their visuals are up there, waaaaay up there.

Polarboy- visually, sure they looked fine. They were well-animated giant silver robots... that all looked the same and absolutely nothing like the characters they were supposed to be.

These robots above, well not as visually impressive, might actually be able to be distinguished from one another... they are much closer to the Transformers "look", was my point.

Where's the emotion for a boxing movie when the boxers are mindless robots? They're being controlled by people... I just.. ugh... this movie. They just don't get it.

The emotion is from Hugh Jackman's character getting one last big shot to be somebody doing the thing the loves most in life, boxing. Also I heard another emotional aspect of the film is his relationship with his son.

...But he's not boxing. The robot is boxing, while he 'VR-boxes' in the corner? That's not emotional. That's unintentionally hilarious.
