The first and only trailer for the upcoming Max Steel live-action movie has finally landed.


The film was actually shot in 2014 and was originally scheduled to be released in 2015. Now, with the debut date set for October 21 of this year, we finally get the first trailer for the film, starring Ben Winchell as the title character and Ana Villafane as love interest Sofia Martinez.

The film comes from a lesser-known comic series of the same name, which then became a popular Mattel toy in the 90s. According to the story, the 16-year-old titular Max McGrath must team up and literally join forces with the titular alien Steel to defeat a common enemy.

The fact that the trailer was only released this week, only two months before the film hits theaters, does not bode well for this superhero movie. That plus the delay in release and the international trailer not directly intended for an American audience, could have bad implications for the reception of the film upon its release.
