Real Steel is a sci-fi movie set in the near future where robots have replaced human fighters in the ring. Hugh Jackman stars as 'Charlie Kenton', a small-time promoter who thinks he can turn a discarded robot into a contender in the World Robot Boxing championships, with the help of his son 'Max'.

Hugh Jackman and sci-fi are two of my favourite things, so let's hope they make for a good film.
