If you were wondering what was going on with the Hugh Jackman rock’em sock’em robot movie, Real Steal, cast your gaze on the first official trailer for the movie.

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.

Real Steal arrives in theaters on October 7, 2011.

    I agree with the Rock em, Sock em movie claim, but when I first saw it I was thinking of an episode of Astro Boy where they had Robot Wrestlers.
