On Thursday, October 6th I attended an exclusive event and discussion with HUGH JACKMAN hosted by Moms & the City ladies at the Walt Disney Studios at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Press and fellow bloggers were invited to talk to Mr Jackman about his latest movie Real Steel, opening today in movie theatres nationwide.
A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, 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 (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. (Fandango)
