This has to be a remake of that Teilight Zone ep Steel right? Where Lee Marvin owns a piece of shit boxing robot that craps out so he has to get in the ring and fight a real Robot or someone he loves dies? Something like that. It might be good? Is Jackman as cool as Marvin?


that's not a real question by the way, Jackman is NOT cooler the Lee Marvin.

Allegedly yes. Which means this is superficially the third Twilight Zone movie.

With likely a bit of The Champ / Iron Giant thrown in as well.

Presuming that the actual Twilight Zone movie is one, what is the second?

'The Box' was based on a Twilight Zone episode.

During the 1980's series. Sorry, the OCD fan in me is showing. :)

I love the Lee Marvin episode.  I think based on the trailer he's not climbing into a robot here.   But I love that storyline.

Then actually you almost might consider this the 4th one.  The Adjustment Bureau seemed somewhat similar to the new series' episode with the Blue Guys that were responsible for constructing each minute of time behind the scenes (and why you find your keys in a place you already looked, they forgot to put them there in a previous minute).
