We have the new poster for Hugh Jackman boxing drama Real Steel below, check it out!
Did I forget to mention there are giant freaking robots in the movie? There are giant freaking robots in the movie. Real Steel follows the story of a washed up human boxer, made obsolete by the newfound popularity of ROBOT boxing, strengthening his relationship with his son as they both train a crappy robot to fight real good. It's an underdog story, people love underdog stories. Much has been made of the lack of peril involved when two robots box, but there's a chance it could work - people liked Robot Wars, didn't they? There's an audience. And it could well end up being a fun little movie. This poster isn't up to much, though. It does what it's supposed to do, I guess, which is let you know that a movie exists where Hugh Jackman and a robot box, but it's not imaginative in any way whatsoever, or particularly striking...'Courage Is Stronger Than Steel' doesn't seem like a very strong tagline either. Just an obligatory bunch of words beneath the title. Meh.
