Max Steel international trailer

A handful of years ago the world fell head over heels in love with Taylor Lautner's abs, which lead to those abdominals attaching themselves a variety of projects such as STRETCH ARMSTRONG and MAX STEEL. After only a few short months, Taylor Lautner's abs dropped out of MAX STEEL and that was literally the last time I remember hearing about about the feature-film based on the action figure toy line and animated series. Miraculously the project somehow moved forward despite my continued ignorance and now our first look at the film has finally arrived in a new international trailer.

"Protect him, he's the only thing that matters!"

An official synopsis for MAX STEEL:

The plot chronicles the adventures of Max McGrath and his mother have just moved back to Copper Canyon, the town in which Max’s scientist father died in a mysterious accident shortly after Max was born. As Max adjusts to his new school, things get complicated when his body starts to generate strange energy flare-ups that he can’t control.

At first a confusing mix of inconvenient and exhilarating, this unpredictable power eventually grows too intense for Max to handle, causing him to distance himself from those around him including the girl he likes, Sofia. Eventually the energy pushes him to the verge of fatal combustion. In the nick of time, a techno-organic extraterrestrial named Steel, who has been secretly monitoring Max’s progress, saves him just before he loses consciousness. The two discover that when joined together they can control the energy and harness it into superhuman strength – and that when apart, neither can survive for long.

As these two unlikely friends learn to accept their connected fates, they begin to uncover secrets surrounding the death of Max’s father. As they dig deeper, they soon find themselves hunted by an unforeseen enemy bent on capturing Max and Steel for a sinister agenda of destruction. Uncertain who to trust, they will have to work together to find the truth, and fight the mysterious forces threatening our world.

MAX STEEL is currently set for an October 21, 2016 release.
