The trailer for “Real Steel” debuted yesterday and after we got past our thoughts of it being a twisted cross between Transformers and Raging Bull, we got to thinking, it’s totally Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots come to life! Hugh Jackman stars in the futuristic film that imagines a world where human boxers no longer satisfy the carnage cravings of the public so they’re replaced by robots. A futuristic concept, but no doubt first introduced in 1964 when the Marx toy company released Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots to huge demand from angsty teenage boys.
