Lost in Previews: Real Steel Trailer 2

The second trailer for Real Steel is out, and it gives us a little more of the background of the story.  It is not just about boxing robots, but a kind of heart to the story, both about Hugh Jackman’s character and the robot itself.  Of course, this is all spawned by Jackman’s son in the movie.  Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie, and Shawn Levy also star.  Official Synopsis:

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. 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 in theatres October 7, 2011.
