“Real Steel,” which is in post-production and will be released sometime in 2011, is about robots who fight each other in the boxing ring. It doesn’t look like my cup of tea, even though it has several things going for it: it stars Hugh Jackman and features Evangeline Lilly (Kate) in an as-yet unnamed role; it has Steven Spielberg as a producer; and it is based on a story which was originally adapted to be a Twilight Zone episode.

According to Wikipedia’s synopsis, “Hugh Jackman plays 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.” Charlie ekes out a living making low-end robots from scrap metal, but when he “hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender… Against all odds, [they] get one last shot at a comeback” in the “brutal, no-holds-barred arena.”

You can see a couple of very quick glimpses of Evangeline in the trailer:
