“Real Steel” Factoids

Here are some interesting behind the scenes facts about the movie that you can share with your friends to show you are really in the know:

  • Sugar Ray Leonard was the film’s boxing consultant and trained Hugh Jackman for his appearance in the ring
  • Costume designer Marlene Stewart created a retro wardrobe for Hugh Jackman’s character Charlie inspired by looks the rugged Americana looks from the 1960s
  • Dreamworks used motion-capture technology and practical-built, full-scale robots to film the robot boxing scenes. The motion-capture elements were performed and shot on a stage in Los Angeles ahead of time and the fighters were put in the ring wearing data-capturing jumpsuits and then their motions were converted into robot avatars on the computer and then instantaneously appeared on the monitors on set. Then, later during principal photography, the filmmakers lined up their cameras on an empty ring and the motion-capture data streamed through their cameras, allowing them to watch and frame the robot fighting in the ring in real time
  • Each of the robots each have a distinctive look, personality and color scheme and range in size from 7’6” to 8’5” in height
