Well, it looks like I can finally retire that old Twilight Zone image from my articles about Shawn Levy's upcoming robot boxing motion picture extravaganza, Real Steel. Dreamworks has sent Coming Soon the first real images from the film.

Of course, by "first real images," I mean "one very stylish production photo of Hugh Jackman posing next to a robot and one boring shot of Jackman conversing with his director," but we'll take what we can get. In addition to the pics, Coming Soon has also posted the official synopsis for the film, which will see release November 18, 2011:

"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."
