‘Real Steel’ — Trailer

Here’s the first trailer for DreamWorks SKG’s film for Disney’s Touchstone Pictures, REAL STEEL.

Directed by Shawn Levy (NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM), REAL STEEL takes place in the near-future, a time when robot boxers have replaced humans in the ring.

Hugh Jackman (X-MEN) plays one of these replaced fighters, now out of work and trying to bond with the son (Dakota Goyo) he barely knows. (Though you’d never guess it from THIS trailer.) Kevin Durand and Evangeline Lilly also star.

 Seem familiar? It’s based on Richard Matheson’s short story Steel, which was adapted into a harrowing episode of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, starring Lee Marvin as the desperate former pugilist.

Screenplay by Leslie Bohem (TAKEN) and John Gatins, after a long history of revisions. 

Due out October 7th, 2011.
