Real Steel: 6 more clips...

Real Steel is loosely based on the Short story and Twilight Zone Episode (Season 5) 'Steel', written by Richard Matheson and starring Lee Marvin.   Matheson's most famous works include the novel I Am Legend (Which has been filmed 3 times), The story 'The Shrinking Man" (effectively filmed at least twice) and his various Twilight Zone Episodes, notoriously 'Nightmare at 20,000 feet; where William Shatner is terrorised by a gremlin on his airplane's wing). It may work better to think of this as a separate story that takes place in the same world as Steel; maybe even a few years later as there are major differences.

“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.”
