If 2001: A Space Odyssey were made today, would it be marketed as a…

Real Steel featurette explains just why you should give a crap about…

Still not convinced that you want to watch Hugh Jackman training a robot to beat another robot into spare parts in Real Steel? This featurette may go a long way towards winning you over.
