Watch: Trailer For 'Real Steel' Is The Transformers Boxing Movie You've Been Waiting For

Updated: New Photos Released

So, not going to get enough of robots beating the ever-loving shit out of each other in next summer’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon“? If the answer is no, then get ready to cream your pants because the first trailer for the Hugh Jackman-led “Real Steel” arrived and it provides lots of CGI metallic objects going smashy-smashy everywhere.

The film is a boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000-pound robots that look like humans do battle. But more specifically, the film is also about a father-son (Dakota Goyo playing the kid) team training an unusual robot to win a boxing championship after Jackman’s fall from glory as an actual human boxer. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Hope Davis, James Rebhorn and our new collective crush, Olga Fonda.

Directed by Shawn Levy (who we assume is making some kind of quantum leap having previously helmed “Date Night” and “Pink Panther“) the $80 million pic will hit theaters on October 7, 2011. Check it out after the jump.

New photos just arrived via Dreamworks.
