New trailer for Real Steel is nothing you haven't seen before

May. 10, 2011by:

The new trailer for REAL STEEL, the robot boxing movie starring Hugh Jackman, is now online in preparation of a big theater debut next week with PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. While it's a new trailer and it's just debuted online, it has a distinctly familiar feel. That's because it's ripping off about 100 other movies.

While it may have giant robots in it, REAL STEEL is essentially just that age-old sports redemption movie. In fact, watching this trailer I was surprised to see how closely it hews to Stallone's OVER THE TOP. There's the precocious, estranged son who's trying to connect with his father. The father was almost a champ ("you coulda been the best!"), but hit hard times and is now a truck driver. The son inspires him to reenter the game and together, as true underdogs, they take on the competition to rekindle their relationship win a title. And Hugh Jackman even wears Stallone's Ray-Bans from COBRA!

Maybe I'm being hard on this movie (it looks like it's made for kids) but I was hoping this would be a little more than it is. Then again it was directed by Shawn Levy, so I'm not entirely surprised. Check out the new trailer below or head to Yahoo! Movies to see it in HD.

Can't believe it, but I just got strangely excited watching the trailer; made me feel like a kid again. We know what we're going to get, and there is nothing wrong with that.

looks good

people are being too harsh on this. It looks like pure popcorn fluff. Like somebody said below, this movie would be freakin incredible for a young, open mind.

Thor? Captain America? Fast Five? Green Lantern? Super 8? Cowboys and Aliens? Harry Potter? meh. Transformers? Alright sure it's similar, but the new one looks too dark (note: I'm saying this in the shoes of a young kid)... but this - hell THIS would be THE movie of the year if I was a young chap

It's not on the top of my list, but

It's not on the top of my list, but I'll see it, could be a fun time.

I'd probably catch this on VOD around Christmas break with a living room full of kids. I'm more careful about how I spend my money on movies these days.

I'd be upset if they compared it to Rocky and etc, but they're marketing it as just plain fun - and it does look fun.

I knew it...

I knew this was gonna be one of those movies, but the teaser had promise. Idea of a fighter-turned promoter just looking to make some money. Throw in a little kid, I'm already tuned out. No offense, Little Kid.

If Transformers had sex with Rocky and they had a late abortion, this would be the fetus.

I was going to try and post something witty, but after reading your comment, I realize it would have been pointless. Well done, sir.

I don't see how this movie can be successful, it's pretty ridiculous, especially with it's 90 million $ budget

By the looks of this trailer, this could be the most unintentionally hilarious movie of all time.
