Dreamworks Studios presents REAL STEEL, 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.
REAL STEEL begins 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 an action drama about a former boxer (Hugh Jackman) who, against all odds, gets one last shot at a comeback when he teams up with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train the perfect contender for the new high-tech sport of robot boxing.
REAL STEEL is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum franchise and Date Night). Based on the short story ‘Steel’ by Richard Matheson (TWILIGHT ZONE series, I AM LEGEND and STIR OF ECHOES novels).
