The Spielberg produced “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman and he took part in a discussion at the SDCC.
Hugh Jackman talks about his upcoming film “Real Steel” by director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, The Hardy Men) and starring Hugh Jackman (The Wolverine, Butter), Kevin Durand (I Am Number Four, Robin Hood), Evangeline Lilly (Lost, The Hurt Locker) and Hope Davis (The Weather Man, About Schmidt).
Jackman entertained audiences arriving with a couple of the robots to promote the Dreamworks Pictures’ upcoming action drama. REAL STEEL opens in theaters everywhere on October 7th!
A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, REAL STEEL stars Hugh 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 (Dakota 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.
