New posters have gone online for Real Steel, The Ides of March, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.  The Real Steel poster finally uses Hugh Jackman’s mug instead of his silhouette or the boxing robot’s camel-fist.  Speaking of handsome faces, Ryan Gosling is a good-looking dude looking at fellow attractive gent George Clooney in the poster for the political thriller The Ides of March.  I’ll let folks in the comments section debate who’s hotter (answer: Clooney).  Finally, there’s a UK quad poster for Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy that’s packed with blurbs from British publications raving about the movie.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  Real Steel and The Ides of March open October 7th.  Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy opens in the UK on September 16th and in the US on December 9th.

Here’s the 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 synopsis for The Ides of March:

The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency.

Here’s the synopsis for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy:

Based on the classic novel of the same name, the international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War years of the mid-20th Century.

MI-6, has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets.
