Hugh Jackman is set to slug it out in the boxing ring -- with a futuristic twist -- in 'Real Steal,' and ET's got the details.

The action drama from DreamWorks Studios stars Jackman as a former boxer who, against all odds, gets one last shot at a comeback when he teams up with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train the perfect contender for the now high-tech sport of robot boxing.

'Real Steel' opens nationwide on November 18, 2011.
