Extended RoboCop TV Spot Asks 'Who Is In Control?'
As February inches closer, we continue to get new looks at Robocop, including the above international TV spot, which emphasizes control. Is Alex Murphy's free will just an illusion? It sounds like OmniCorp has it set up that way, but then we hear the words, "He's undoing what we did to him," which suggests that control is shifting.

Robocop Clip Puts Alex Murphy Through A Field Test
How do you put RoboCop through a field test? Drop him in a warehouse, tell him not to get shot in the face and then start firing, not necessarily in that order. This, according to the new clip from the upcoming Robocop remake. That description is probably a bit too vague to be accurate, technically.

RoboCop TV Spots Prove America Needs A Robo-Hero
Dead or alive, you’re going to bear witness to quite a bit more marketing for José Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop reboot, which could potentially put an end to U.S. crime forever, or at least until the inevitable sequel.

10 Movies For 2014 We Secretly Think Will Be Terrible
We’re going to go ahead and assume these ten aren’t going to be the films that surprise us all that much. The writing seems to be on the wall as far as talent involved, quality of promotional material, and behind-the-scenes gossip.

RoboCop Reboot Crams New Footage Into Drunk Driving PSA
Don't let this soiree-filled season go to your head and make you forget the importance of driving sober. Who better to get that message across than RoboCop, the part man part machine at the center of the rebooted RoboCop.

New Robocop Trailer Demands That You Stop Being So Robophobic
You're gonna cringe within the first few seconds of this new Robocop trailer, which proves at the very least that there are some lines that even Samuel L. Jackson can't sell. In the near future, America is producing peacekeeping robots that are protecting people all over the world… except in their home country. And in a nation dependent on Siri and Roombas, the only way to achieve robot acceptance is, of course, to kill a cop and put him inside a robo-suit and make him into a machine

RoboCop Reboot Teases Its Upcoming Second Trailer
Honestly, the teaser doesn’t look terrible. I didn’t even cringe too badly when they changed “good cop/bad cop” to “good cop/RoboCop.” At least it’s Michael K. Williams delivering the line.

Robocop Is Coming To IMAX Theaters
Here’s the thing: I don’t actually have a problem with tons of movies making the move to IMAX theaters, as I one day hope that IMAX is the most common way to watch a movie. But after having watched the trailer for Robocop several times, I just can’t figure out what this movie will do visually that absolutely needs to be seen in IMAX theaters.

New RoboCop Poster Arrives With A Threat
Based on a script by Nick Schenk, James Vanderbilt, and Joshua Zetumer, RoboCop is set in the year 2028 in a crime ridden Detroit, where Officer Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) works as a police officer. When Murphy is nearly killed during a car explosion, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp swoops in and makes an offer to turn him into something more

RoboCop Director Jose Padilha Will Keep The Original's Irony But Not The R-Rating
Jose Padilha is not remaking your father’s RoboCop. “That would be silly,” the director told us during a recent conversation. “I love the first movie. It’s amazing. It’s iconic.” But times have changed – locally and internationally – and Padhila’s vision of a new RoboCop should transition along with them. (Ironically, the actual hometown in the bloody, blue-collar original film – Detroit – recently filed for bankruptcy and likely could use a legitimate hero, but that’s another story.)

RoboCop Trailer Merges Man And Machine
Back in July, Comic-Con attendees got a look at the upcoming RoboCop remake, which is due to hit theaters next February. Today, the film's first official trailer has landed online, giving us a look at Jose Padilha's film, which stars Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy, the policeman who - due to what appears to be a car bomb explosion, is left paralyzed until the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp uses their technology to get him back on his feet, turning him into the titular Robocop in the process.

Robocop Gets PG-13 Rating And Viral Website Update
While I’m all about films’ viral sites, this one is lacking due to a complete absence from the film’s stars. If this site is for Sellars’ company, then I want to see Michael Keaton’s face plastered all over it. Maybe have Samuel Jackson giving somebody an interview.

Detroit's Robocop Statue Is Almost Finished
Walley expects the statue will be completed by the end of summer 2014, though notes it's more important to get it just right than hit some deadline. As for RoboCop's final destination within Detroit, that is yet to be determined.

RoboCop, Elysium, And Cloudy 2: Revenge Of The Leftovers Shift Around The Release Schedule
Two of the biggest sci-fi movies of 2013 are having their release schedules messed with. Sony has decided to make a few adjustments to their calendar next year and have even gone as far as to boot one of their biggest films off of it. The trade has learned that Elysium, the new movie from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, has shifted from March 1, 2013 to August 9, 2013 and have taken RoboCop and moved it to February 7, 2014.

Robocop Sales Poster Confirms New Costume Design
When photos emerged the other day from the Toronto set of Sony's RoboCop remake, a lot of fans were disappointed to see the all-black, somewhat generic look of Joel Kinnaman's costume. It was an update form the 1987 original, sure, but also way too similar to typical superhero costumes

First Look At The New RoboCop Armor Has Arrived
Production on the remake of Paul Verhoven's RoboCop has officially begun up in Toronto, Canada and it took no time at all for the first photos of Joel Kinnaman in costume to arrive online. And while the new armor does certainly look different than what we saw in the 1987 original - the most notable change being that his armor is black now instead of gun-metal gray - it's actually surprising just how conservative the changes are. Check out the first on-set looks at the new RoboCop costume below.

Michael Keaton To Replace Hugh Laurie As The Villain In RoboCop
He's been Batman, he's been Beetlejuice, and now he's set to be Robocop's number one target. Reports have surfaced saying that Michael Keaton has been selected as the actor to replace Hugh Laurie as the villain in director Jose Padilha's upcoming remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1987 sci-fi/action classic.

Robocop Remake Director Says It's Hell
You probably wouldn't even have to ask director Jose Padilha to find out it's a pain in the ass to be the director of the Robocop remake. He's facing an uphill battle essentially from the word "go," retelling a story that most people thought was perfectly fine the first time around, and making it for a studio that's seen so many financial troubles in recent years

Hugh Laurie Drops Out Of The RoboCop Remake, Could Clive Owen Replace Him?
Even without Laurie, the RoboCop remake has an impressive cast, including The Killing star Joel Kinnaman in the lead role, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earl Haley, Jennifer Ehle and Michael K. Williams. But being able to add an actor, of the caliber of Owen would be a blessing. From what we are hearing about the script, it’s going to need a lot of help from its cast to keep things grounded.
