The Phillies may play like machines, but Citizens Bank Park will have two one-ton, 8-foot Hollywood robots on view today, starting at noon.
The appearance is to promote a new movie, Real Steel, starring Hugh Jackman, that's a cross - a right cross? - between Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots and Rocky.
Alternatively, it's a lightweight version of Transformers, which featured bots as big as buildings.
Jackman plays a down-on-his-luck boxer, whose career ends when mechanical maulers take over the ring. Soon Jackman, with the help of his young son, is developing his own robo-Joe Frazier to make a vicarious comeback.
