As most know by this point a new RoboCop movie is soon to be released and so far we have seen two trailers that have resulted in mixed opinions throughout the Internet. Will this third trailer, that focuses a bit more on Murphy, sway more people to seeing it? Take the jump to watch and then give us your opinion.
With more and more material from next Spring’s remade/reworked Robocop film escaping into the wild, fans around the world are coming to the conclusion that those in charge of the remake didn’t necessarily get what was best about the original movie and, to a lesser degree, the sequel. (Although, now that I think of it, the same could be said about Robocop 3.) Officer Murphy’s journey from cop and father to implement of destruction back to a semblance of humanity was a disturbing tale, filled with violence, mutilation and entirely human monsters, and the tank-like armored form that Peter Weller inhabited wasn’t SUPPOSED to be a sleek, black superhero suit. But, as with anything, mileage may vary, and having not yet seen the movie, I can’t promise that it won’t be the best man-into-machine story of the modern age. Of course, since pop culture as we know it is roundabout a century old (depending who’s doing the measuring) that designation begs a query…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will always have a soft spot for ‘Tetsuo: The Iron Man,’ a film that I nonetheless have no desire to ever see again, asking: Who’s your favorite human/machine hybrid in all of pop culture?
If you aren’t familiar with Comicbookgirl19, you should know she’s pretty cool, and what she does with her online videos is pretty interesting as well. This year at Dragon-Con 2013, she decided to take a unique approach to creating a RoboCop costume.
A new RoboCop movie is coming out early next year. Of course, with a new RoboCop comes new OmniCorp technology, and we have a few pics and a video discussing the full product line available for you after the jump.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, RoboCop is getting a remake and the production doesn’t seem too concerned with pictures from set leaking at all. This new batch of set photos focuses on Robo’s new black motorcycle.
As RoboCop gets closer to release date, viral marketing campaigns have started to pop up. One of the first is an OmniCorp commercial spot for the entire line of products the keep the community safe.
As the RoboCop remake draws ever closer to production, word out of H’wood has another well known actor joining the cast.
Though Peter Weller isn’t involved in the RoboCop remake (that we know of), news that Gary Oldman has joined the cast, does make us giddy.
RoboCop is already appearing in comics with The Terminator, but Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new RoboCop series that arrives in stores in December.
The ultimate killing machine meets the future of law enforcement. In the Terminator’s future all humanity must be wiped out, so when Robocop is woken from an enforced hibernation, Alex Murphy finds himself amongst the final hunted. But will his body side with Skynet? Or can man finally overcome machines? Rising star Rob Williams (Ghost Rider, Punisher Max: Get Castle) and P.J. Holden (Battlefields, Judge Dredd for 2000 AD), create the ultimate tale of life and death for humanity in Terminator/Robocop: Kill Human #1 this July from Dynamite Entertainment!
According to Mike Fleming over at Deadline, MGM has tapped Josh Zetumer to write the reboot to the RoboCop franchise. While a lot of positive word has been passed around regarding Zetumer’s work, one can’t help but notice that he writes a lot of big project scripts that then get passed on to someone else. Will this happen again, or will he finally get a break and be credited as the writer for the final draft?
