New posters have been released for Real Steel, Friends with Benefits, and Life in a DayReal Steel stars Hugh Jackman but there’s a cardinal rule of teaser posters that you don’t just come out and show the star’s face.  But Real Steel, for as bad as the plot looks, does have some interesting robot designs.  The robot DreamWorks has chosen to showcase is apparently Camel-Toe Fist.  I fierce competitor, I’m sure. (Note: For clarity reasons, I have to say I don’t think there’s actually a robot called “Camel-Toe Fist” in the movie)  The posters for Friends with Benefits are bland, and the film has to overcome the stigma of following up No Strings Attached even though Friends with Benefits looks like the better film.  Finally, the poster for Life in a Day has a fun design and I can’t wait to see the part of the movie where a guy eats a watermelon.  We can all relate to that.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  Real Steel opens October 7th, Friends with Benefits opens July 22nd, and Life in a Day opens July 24th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Real Steel:

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

Here’s the official synopsis for Friends with Benefits:

Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) think it’s going to be easy to add the simple act of sex to their friendship, despite what Hollywood romantic comedies would have them believe. They soon discover however that getting physical really does always lead to complications.


Here’s the synopsis for Life in a Day:

Life in a Day is a historic global event to create the first user generated feature film documenting a single day on Earth.  It’s a unique time capsule that will tell future generations what it was like to be alive on the 24th of July 2010.  On that day, people around the world captured a moment of their lives on camera and over 80,000 videos were uploaded to YouTube.

Academy Award winning director Kevin Macdonald and producer Ridley Scott have teamed up to tell a highly emotional story from the submitted footage.
