Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman. Man needs no introduction. What he does need is a good slap on the back for remaining one of the kindest, most down-to-earth gents in the business. Umpteen years after we first talked to him for “Swordfish”, Jackman proves he’s completely unaffected by the Hollywood machine as he speaks candidly and warmly about his current hit “Real Steel”.

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near future [the year 2020], 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 (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.
