The people behind Dolphin Films’ live-action adaptation of the Mattel property have released latest photos from the production as the stars and director prepare to descend on Comic-Con

Earlier this year IM Global partnered with Dolphin Films International on pre-sales to the project and US distributor Open Road plans to release in 2015 as part of a global launch.

Ben Winchell and Ana Villafañe star in the origins tale of a youngster called Max who returns with his mother to the town where his scientist father died many years ago.

Beset by strange energy flare-ups, Max joins forces with Steel, a benign alien. When combined, the friends create a superhuman entity as they set out to uncover the truth behind the death of Max’s father.

Winchell, Villafañe and director Stewart Hendler and screenwriter Christopher Yost attend Comic-Con in San Diego for an autograph session at the Mattel booth on July 25.
