    Anybody notice the resemblances between the robots in the two movies?
    In particular the sparing bot "Adam" to "Bee" ? The structure, build, face and the boxing moves. Very similar to Bee first introducing himself to Sam and Mikila while doing the boxing moves. And the Mohamed Allah voice over Bee's radio.

    Real Steel is very obviously modelled after Transformers on Robot's design [actually, 90% of the robots appearing today in movies have designs CLEARLY on the style of the Transformers franchise].

    Just take a look at any of the fighting robots scenes on trailer and tell me those designs are not on the style of the TFmovies.

    But Real Steel looks pretty cool, you know, GIANT FREAKING ROBOTS [WRESTLERING giant freaking robots, no less], Hugh "Badass" Jackman and stuff.

    Just put AC/DC on the Robot Fightining scenes and we will have a new cinema classic.

    It definitely has some artistic inspiration from the transformers. And yes, I am definitely going to see it. It looks totally freaking realistic.

    Real Steel looks fucking awesome. It's a glorified Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots movie.

    That is FUCKING AWESOME.

    I'm going to watch both but I know what to expect from Real Steel.

    Wolverine, young Thor, Kate, Gabriel and that guy from "The Hurt Locker" in a movie about boxing robots.

    How can this NOT be awesome?

    Well, yeah, BB likes boxing, and this movie is about boxing robots.

    Also there's already a thread in the movie forum.

    Well its kind not a coincidence that there are similarities between these bots and the Transformers since the CGI work is predominately being done by ILM.

    It looks interesting but still on the fence about whether i'll go see it. Might make it a 'tigh-a$$' tuesday movie (tuesdays are cheap ticket days at cinemas here in Melbourne)

    Been interested since it was first revealed like a year ago. There was a short teaser trailer and a small blurb about the story. I was hooked immediately.

    Now? Definitely must go.

    1.) Well, DotM is being split ~75:25 between ILM and Digital Domain. Digital Domain is the primary vendor for Real Steel, with no word (as of yet) to any involvement with ILM.

    2.) Giant robots are always awesome, as displayed in the movieverse, and most recently, Thor. :D 

    3.) Yeah! Cheap Tuesdays FTW! ;) 

    I'll definitely be checking it out. It looks cool. :bay 

    And I wouldn't really call "October 7th" a "summer movie", OP. :p

    I remember reading about a year ago that Hugh was making a movie based on a short story about boxing robots, at the time I thought the premise sounded pretty stupid.... And I kinda still do but it does look like a nice feel good movie with Transformers crossed with Rocky.
