DreamWorks Pictures has unveiled both the international and domestic posters for Shawn Levy's futuristic boxing tale, Real Steel. Check out both of them below and sound off with your thoughts. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo, Anthony Mackie and Kevin Durand. Helmer Levy led the production, based on a screenplay by John Gatins.

Plot Concept: A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-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 will strike theaters October 7, 2011.

Anyone else beside me think that the ABC robot from Judge Dredd could kick the crap out of these robots?

is this a kids movie?  pass.

I'm very confused by who this movie is for, as well Muddseye.  The first trailer showed no sing of a child and now one is helping him make the robot.  I wasn't quite sold on the premise yet, and that twist of fate lessens the thrill.  But, Hugh Jackman is a performer and he might be able to pull out the right emotion to make me care.  We shall see.

It's based on a Short story by Richard Mathes from the 1950's called 'Steel' where robots have replaced boxers.  The guy's absolutely prolific.

I still think Rock 'em Sock 'em robots everytime I see this

 Pendragon - wasn't that the same story that was used for the "Steel" episode of the original Twilight Zone?  That was by Richard Matheson, who also wrote the original story for The Box ("Button, Button").

The first trailer had my interest. I thought it looked like something I'd pay to see. But when they released the trailer with the kid, I lost any interest I had in it. Just looks plain hokey now with the whole father-son bonding as we build a robot plot.

Aegrant:

Which is really gonna be funny the 1st time during a fight scene and a robot head pops off the body and goes straight up in the air and we find out it's attached with a spring (or something like it).  Right in the middle of the theater I'm just gonna laugh and laugh and laugh.  Too make matters worse ... some kid won't have the slightest idea why I think it's funny.
