Hugh: Real Steel about self belief

Hugh Jackman has described his latest film as a "robot movie with a heart".

The actor plays a washed-up boxer who lost his livelihood when robots replaced human fighters in the ring in Real Steel.

Speaking at the film's world premiere in Los Angeles, he said fans would feel "good about life" after seeing the film.

"I know they're going to leave up, they're going to cheer, they're going to be moved and they're going to feel good about life and about themselves," he said.

"The movie's about believing in yourself, ultimately. We can all do with that reminder."

He added: "If it's a robot movie, it's a robot movie with a heart."

Real Steel also stars Evangeline Lilly, while young actor Dakota Goyo plays Jackman's son Max.
