According to studio estimates, Hugh Jackman’s “Real Steel,” set in a near-future when robot fighters have replaced humans in the ring, debuted at No. 1 with $27.3 million. “Ides of March” opened at No. 2.
Real Steel is the 2011 version of “Rocky.” It’s a movie that’s designed to have audiences cheering for the underdog, and, that’s exactly what happens.
Authorities say a helicopter used in the filming of the Hugh Jackman movie “Real Steel” snagged a power line in Michigan, causing a brief power outage and closing a roadway.
