ComingSoon.net has learned that Real Steel star Hugh Jackman will be making an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con tomorrow morning, Thursday, 7/21 at 10:30am in the Petco Park parking lot (100 Park Blvd.) along with the Real Steel truck that will be driving around San Diego throughout the long weekend. Hugh will be passing out Real Steel toys and swag, signing autographs for fans and 2 lucky winners will receive an HP touchpad.
A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech, Real Steel stars 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.
The movie hits conventional and IMAX theaters on October 7.
