Hugh Jackman stars as a former boxer who now manages robot fighters in DreamWorks Pictures’ Real Steel. And although the premise sounds like Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots (remember that game?), this behind the scenes video featuring Jackman and director Shawn Levy shows there’s more to the movie than just robots hitting each other in an arena.
Watch the featurette:

The Real Steel Plot:
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.
