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.

There should be a little something for everyone in the coming year. And to help you plan out your movie-watching year, we singled out 14 titles we’re looking forward to in 2014, as well as a list of additional can’t-miss movies.
RoboCop Back In Action In Six Hard-Hitting Images
Yes, it’s a reboot, but every time we get a fresh look at Jose Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop, we’re allowing ourselves to get a little more excited. Could it actually be good?
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.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit And RoboCop Get Pushed Back
December marks a crowded theatrical release line-up with studios vying for family outing dollars and the attention of award season voters. But Christmas Day just got a little less packed as Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has been bumped to a release in the new year.
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.
RoboCop Comic-Con Panel Live Blog
Sony and Screen Gems have blocked off a little over two hours to show us what they have in store. This panel will feature Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, RoboCop and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With so much to sort through, we're dividing this live blog up into parts.
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.
