REAL STEEL looks like the reel deal! I never thought I'd say that about a film from the director who brought us CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, THE PINK PANTHER, and JUST MARRIED, but here we are.

The film from DreamWorks stars Hugh Jackman as a washed up boxer who, along with his son (Dakota Goyo), returns to the ring with a bit more power to his punch. Set in the near future, the sport of boxing has replaced humans with 2,000 pound robots who duke it out as they are controlled by their human counterparts. It has been said other places but I can't help but agree - it's THE IRON GIANT meets ROCKY meets TRANSFORMERS. But hey, what's wrong with that? Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Hope Davis, James Rebhorn, and Olga Fonda and costar.

REAL STEEL hits theaters November 18th. But you can check out the trailer now after the break.
