Until now, I didn’t know anything about this movie so we’ll have to rely on USA Today’s info. According to the site, the movie….
Imagines a world in which human boxing is non-existent, replaced by leagues of mechanized pugilists. It’s expected to arrive in theaters in November 2011. Motion-capture animation is used in the film when the machines are brawling (with boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard working as an adviser on those), but 19 real-life animatronic giants were created for scenes with the human actors.
They go on to tell us that the movie is to be produced by Steven Spielberg (Dreamworks) and Touchstone, a wing of Walt Disney Pictures. According to IMDb, the movie also stars Lost actress, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie and Hope Davis.
