New movies: 'The Ides of March' and 'Real Steel'

The Takeaway
The World
This weekend, two of the season's biggest star vehicles are opening in  theaters. "The Ides of March," with George Clooney as a distinctly pre-2008 Obama-like candidate, and Ryan Gosling as an idealistic campaign staffer. "Real Steel" stars Hugh Jackman as a boxer eight years in the future, when robot boxing has replaced actual human boxing as America's favorite bloodsport. Rafer Guzman, co-host of The Takeaway's Movie Date podcast and is a film critic for Newsday, previews this weekend's new releases.
