The first trailer for the Shawn Levy-directed sci-fi flick Real Steel has just been released. The movie stars Hugh Jackman as a man who, along with his son, helps a robot win a championship after the man has ended his own boxing career.

The movie shot entirely in Detroit, and spent much of the shoot at the Detroit Fire Department Headquarters, which was transformed into a boxing ring, the COBO Center and the Joe Louis Arena.

Real Steel opens October 7, 2011.

Authorities in Huron County’s Sheridan Township, about 90 miles north of Detroit, MI, confirmed that a helicopter currently being used in Dreamworks’ Real Steel accidentally clipped a wire during filming.

According to Huron County Sheriff Kelly J. Hanson, “No one was injured in the accident.”  He added, “the helicopter hooked the electrical wire, then seemed to have directional control issues before safely flying away”.

The planned filming using the helicopter was canceled after the incident and was rescheduled for tomorrow (9.23). Real Steel, which has wrapped aside from the helicopter re-shoot,  is a futuristic drama about robot boxing. The film is scheduled for a 2011 release.

Below is a list of movies filming in Michigan on Wednesday, July 14, 2010.

Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly, is filming at the Detroit Fire Department Headquarters on the corner of Washington Blvd and Larned St. (Thanks Jessica)
Here are some more details about the Real Steel set:

The movie will be there through July 27th, according to a letter to local businesses from the film company. The “gym” set (boxing ring and several large dented steel punching bags) was built on the main floor garage of the Fire Department building, $180,000 was spent installing a hardwood floor over the concrete (per one of the firemen), which will be torn up and disposed of once the filming is complete. Yesterday, a truck was spraying down the entire sidewalk and front steps of the COBO conference center which is located directly across the street from the fire department for a scene they were shooting. They have, so far, filmed scenes on the roof of the building, in the alley next to the building (next to a large army green painted work truck), and scenes in the street on Larned, outside of the Fire Dept building. (Thanks Dave)
