Who says robot boxing won’t happen in 2020?! Real Steel plays out this fantasy as robots have replaced humans in boxing in this Shawn Levy film (Night at the Museum franchise and Date Night).
Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) loses a chance to become a boxing champion when robots take over, and he becomes a small-time promoter. When he has difficulty making a living, he reluctantly teams up with his son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build a robot that can contend for the championship.
The stunning visual effects behind the robots can only be brought to live by believable sound. The team responsible for this difficult task include Craig Henighan (sound designer, sound re-recording mixer, supervising sound editor), Skip Longfellow (first assistant sound editor), Warren Hendriks (sound designer), Rob Nokes (sound effects field recordist) and Dan O’Connell (foley artist).
