Disney sent over a new poster for the upcoming Hugh Jackman movie, Real Steel from DreamWorks Pictures.

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 Steel” is directed by Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum” franchise and “Date Night”).

Real Steel opens October 07, 2011.

      They’re not. This looks like an update of the Twilight Zone episode “Steel”. Not sure why everyone keeps saying rockem-sockem.

    If I want to see robots hitting each other I’ll rent out the 80’s double bill of Crash & Burn and Robot Jox.
