REAL STEEL looks like a crazy live action version of MICKEY'S MECHANICAL MAN cartoon!

Published at: Dec. 10, 2010, 12:21 a.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here with a quick Trailer update for that Hugh Jackman science fiction film that is, essentially going to be called by just about everyone as a live-action ROCK'EM SOCK'EM ROBOTS - and there's nothing wrong with that, except there will be character development and a story in play here, that could be quite a bit of fun. I've been hearing amazing things about the visual effects and just how well they'll mesh with reality - and I have to say, I do like the Trailer quite a bit, it looks great, but I've also heard that this isn't even the finished effects for this film, so it's just gonna get better and better. But you know the best thing about this trailer? It means we're closer still to the Aronofsky WOLVERINE with Hugh. Which I am fairly positive about saying it will be amongst the best things ever. And if it isn't. Darren will need mutant healing abilities because he knows we expect greatness from him on this - and after the last WOLVERINE, we surely deserve it. In the meanwhile... Enjoy the trailer to REAL STEEL: Click Here for the Trailer

    This site sucks

    by DoctorStopMo

    Ugh the update made it worse.

    This looks silly enough to work.

    by JediRob

    Site Update...

    by HEADGEEK

    Is nowhere near complete. The Ruby On Rails version of AICN was at least a month and a half off from being where we wanted it to be, to debut it. However, due to some problems that developed with our Drupal version - we had to aggressively move forward with the new version and do live development, which I and every other web person loathes. But it was that, or shut AICN down for a month & a half.

    You can always leave and not come back. Oh wait you'd rather spend your pathetic life bitching about shit you really like but don't want to be honest enough to admit.

    I dont know

    by Rev. Artemis Prime

    It looks cool, but there better be a plot beyond guy tells robots to fight. BTW. New site sucks. You know this. We'll wait for goodness. Good luck with the new hotness

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 1:44 a.m. CST

    People are still reeling from the new facebook change

    by mothandrust

    About time AICN had a makeover. Looking forward to seeing how it rolls over...

    Hollywood done plum gone crazy

    by Phategod2

    I mean what the fuck seriously this looks like the dumbest shit ever. And just when you think Jackman couldn't sink any lower then Helsing.

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 4:13 a.m. CST

    this looks like it cant even hold

    by Phategod2

    Robot Jocks strap.

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 5:03 a.m. CST

    I doubt it will hold up to its premise.

    by RedEgiraahgnal

    The trailer looks cool, but something tells me it's gonna be your average cookie cutter sports drama, only with a tacked on SciFi gimmick.

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 6:12 a.m. CST

    Greatness from Jackman?

    by mojoman69

    Harry, you need to lay off the chronic. the guy just cannot act.

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 6:21 a.m. CST

    Harry, what happened to the old version of the site?

    by Inexplicable_Nuclear_Balls

    Did you use it past the expiration date, and it started to smell funny?

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 8:11 a.m. CST

    Looks decent enough..

    by epicac

    But the trailer seems to do away with the whole father / son aspect and the struggling fighter. Or did the script ditch those ideas? Also, it seems a lot of trailers these days are coming out almost a full year before the films release. Why? People seem to lose interest waiting that long.

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 9:12 a.m. CST

    Looks like

    by buggerbugger

    'Transformers', but with robots fighting each other.

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 11:28 a.m. CST

    I have to click on every individual comment to read them all?

    by slone13

    WHAT. THE. FUCK? How about a "Read all" option?

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 12:03 p.m. CST

    Robot fighting would be exciting for about 5 minutes.

    by jarjarmessiah

    People want blood. Robots do not have blood. It should have been about genetically engineered animals. Mike Vick could have a cameo.

    this new format sucks!

    by idrinkyourmilkshake

    Yes, I'm complaining. Fuck it...I hate clicking on every comment to read it....especially if I'm peeking on this site on my phone while at work. And yes, this movie looks like crap too! But, Im getting shitfaced at the DIESELBOY concert after work...so I guess Ill forget about this...till tomorrow.

    Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots: The Movie!

    by Grimcicle

    I wonder...

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 4:32 p.m. CST

    Its directed by Shawn Levy!

    by skimn

    I'd rather watch it if it was directed by Eugene Levy. I have a feeling it will feel like one of those okay directed "Amazing Stories" episodes blown up for the big screen.

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 4:36 p.m. CST

    Something i read

    by Wyrdy the Gerbil

    I remember reading a short story many years ago that had robots fighting each other in a boxing ring by Richard Matherson it was also used for a Twilight Zone episode,about a flesh and blood fighter who decides to take the place of one of the robots ..it was quite a sad story in many ways

    The guy has made some questionable choices but c'mon. He's a more-than-decent actor. "Terrible" is just stupid.

  • And I hate how trying to load this site has become such a hassle. I'm moving to Badass Digest. Ha. I jest. Sort of. :-|

    AICN Extra Stuff Updated!

    by kevinwillis.net

    Added Ignore and Hilite Buttons. Edit and Delete Buttons should (haven't tested this) show up in Chrome. Now you can ignore or hilite your favorite users (can't do both). Also, reoders the talkback, makes it look more like it used to, adds a running count to the messages, and more. Been working on it, don't have time to say everything. Check it out! Easy to disable if it doesn't work for you . . . <br><br> http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/92278

    AICN Extra Stuff: May Be Issue on Chrome

    by kevinwillis.net

    That suddenly cropped up. Stupid Chrome! Firefox seems to be working. Will be fixed, updated tonight (or should be).

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 5:33 p.m. CST

    That is terrible

    by chien_sale

    Really. fighting mecanical things. what's the appeal?

  • Dec. 10, 2010, 6:41 p.m. CST

    by redkamel

    I have scrolling issue and I dont see the edit button on the new site. Also, I dont how you could have made a more BORING trailer. Why would I care about this story characters? Is there any tension? Is there a particular robot as the main character, or is it just high jackman and some inanimate toys? why would people care about robot fighting in the future when watching people is infinitely more satisfying? The trailer addresses none of these. How about voiceover, black screen: "In the near future, human sport fighting is outlawed (cuts of crazy UFC people getting worked). Robotics and AI industries find a new venue to develop and advance their technology (clips of robots doing all sorts of nice things for people that require coordination, speed, and strength) ...REAL STEEL" (clips of robots fighting) voiceover, montage of jackamans shitty life: Now, a down and out fighter has one last chance to use what he knows...to save his family...and give a robot what it never had.. (clips of our main robot being built, consigned to the dump, then fighting and getting the shit kicked out of it...its down and out) "...the heart to fight back" (shot of the beat robots eyes lighting up, hand clenching into fist) REAL STEEL yes its simple and not creative, but that trailer was balls. All I gathered was that in the future robots fight and hugh jackman trains them. Id rather watch Robot Jox than this crap.

    The robot designs...

    by Baryonyx

    ...look pretty naff - and I'm sure repetitious shots of robots punching each will get tedious pretty fast.

    Woah, sorry to have offended your sensibilities, little guy. As others have stated, the new Talkback features - such as having to click on every topic to be able to read it - are annoying. The previous talkback system was pretty primitive (as has been stated many a time). The new update did nothing to improve the deficiencies of the previous talkbacks, and yet managed to make them more difficult to navigate. Sorry if that hurts your feelings. <p> Calm down a little. I generally read a few headlines here (though they've usually been reported elsewhere) and occasionally the talkbacks, but people like you are a damn compelling reason to "leave and not come back." You know nothing about my life, what I do, or my proclivities (for the record, I'm generally not a tenth as negative as the average talkbacker), yet you are just champing at the bit to get on a high horse and cast some aspersions, eh? What does that say about the state of *your* life?

    ANYBODY REMEMBER ROBOT JOX?

    The fliq doesn't hold up too well, but it was a decent idea that could be executed better now, even if it was just a syfy remake imo.
