Normally Movie Fanatic heads to Los Angeles International Airport to head to some sort of movie junket. Whether it’s the Toronto Film Festival or another destination, the LAX journey usually involves exiting our Hollywood home. As Hugh Jackman was anointed to appear at the Virgin America Real Steel plane unveiling, Movie Fanatic was all sorts of ready to check out the new Virgin America plane and chat a few moments with Jackman. Given the film’s boxing centrality, Jackman was in a fighting mood to wax poetic about Real Steel.
Jackman first descended the stairs out of the Real Steel jet with a flight attendant on each arm. He swaggered over to a giant DreamWorks banner covering the side of the plane. He would soon reveal the new Virgin America plane adorned with a Real Steel robot from a film where all the boxing robots are characters warranted of equal billing with Mr. Jackman.
Check out our video below of the unveiling including our chat with one of the world’s biggest movie stars.
And don't miss our interviews with Jackman and the cast and crew from Real Steel in the coming weeks.
