Mondo Trailers: Real Steel

For those of you who don't frequent IMDB, here is a scoop for you.  Unless, of course, they played with some actual movies.  In that case it's less of a scoop.  Even so...

Hugh Jackman managing a robot boxer.  Seriously.

I've seen movies with poison grapes that turn people into zombies, where putting a key-shaped piece of flesh allows you to morph your body into weapons and even ones where Sinbad fights a swamp monster that fires lasers.

I still can't believe that this is real...
Think that I'm making too much out of this.  If so, comment and explain to me why.


  1. On the face of it, it sounds like an old Twilight Zone episode which featured the same idea.

  2. I neglected to mention in it the story, but this is apparently what it actually is. It's a Spielberg film made in the last few years, so who's expecting something new and innovative?

    As an aside, is doing an updated Twilight Zone tale a good idea? It didn't work out too well for the makers of 'The Box' you know...

  3. You know how much I love robot boxers, so I will probably have to see this
