Still from Real Steel
As if September weren't already crazy enough for Toronto in terms of Star Power, something huge is coming for those of us suffering from post-TIFF Celeb Withdrawal! Disney's Real Steel set in 2020, is a battle of Humankind vs. Technology with Charlie (Hugh Jackman) losing his chance to become a Champion Boxer when Robots are decidedly designed for the Sport. Charlie then teams with his Son Max (Dakota Goyo) to design a Robot which gives them a real fighting chance at Victory.

Not only will Director Shawn Levy be in Toronto for the Canadian Premiere of Real Steel on September 20, 2011 - two days after TIFF ends - but Stars Hugh Jackman, Dakota Goyo and Kevin Durand all will be in-town!

Jackman and Durand as you know were both recently in Toronto, with the former here for Mirvish Productions' Hugh Jackman in Concert at Princess of Wales Theatre in July, while the latter around that time wrapped Production on David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis. Durand also will be here for the Premere of Canadian Crime Drama Edwin Boyd at TIFF.

Real Steel opens in Wide Release nationally on October 7, 2011.
