Real Steel

Real Steel is a 2011 American science fiction sports drama film starring Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo, coproduced and directed by Shawn Levy for DreamWorks Pictures. The film is based on the short story Steel, written by Richard Matheson, which was originally published in the May 1956 edition of The Magazine of Fantasy amp Science Fiction, and later adapted into a 1963 Twilight Zone episode, though screenwriter John Gatins placed the film in U.S. state fairs and other oldfashioned Americana settings. Real Steel was in development for several years before production began on June 24, 2010. Filming took place primarily in the U.S. state of Michigan. Animatronic robots were built for the film, and motion capture technology was used to depict the brawling of computergenerated robots and animatronics.

In 2020, human boxers are replaced by robots. Charlie Kenton Hugh Jackman, a former boxer, owns Ambush, but loses it in an arranged fight against a bull belonging to promoter and carnival owner, Ricky Kevin Durand, who sees Charlie as a joke, partially because he beat Charlie up the last time they competed in the ring. Having made a bet that Ambush would win, Charlie now has a debt to Rickywhich he runs out on.After the fight, Charlie learns that his exgirlfriend died and he must attend a hearing deciding the future of their son, Max Dakota Goyo. There, Maxs aunt, Debra Hope Davis, and her wealthy husband, Marvin James Rebhorn, request full custody, which Charlie concedes for 100,000 half in advance, on the condition that Charlie retains Max for three months. Thereupon, Charlie and Max, and Bailey Tallet Evangeline Lilly, the daughter of Charlies former boxing coach, acquire the oncefamous Noisy Boy and arrange a fight, where he is destroyed by Midas. Attempting to scavenge parts of a new robot from a junkyard, Max discovers Atom, an obsolete but intact sparring robot designed to withstand severe damage, and capable of mirroring its handlers movement due to its rare shadow function module. ........
