For the next few weeks we’ll be taking you through the gritty underground fighting world and into the sparkling, brightly lit arenas where the premiere robots brawl it out for fame and fortune. Diary from my top secret time traveling experiment into a Dystopian future or my Real Steel set visit? We’ll let you be the judge.

My absolute favorite thing about these ads is that they all make it look like Hugh Jackman is a killer robot with its arms outstretched.

Do these make you want to go see it?
