We just ran a report on TGD about the reboot of RoboCop, which is coming on February 12. A friend of ours who runs the Movie Zombie blog saw it early, and he wasn’t terribly impressed. Now the first official reviews are in. The verdict?
As long time TGD readers know, we’ve been reporting on the importance of overseas box office for movies. Without the big bucks coming in from China especially, a lot of movies can’t earn their money back, let alone make a profit.
When RoboCop first hit theaters in 1987, the ad campaign and coming attractions gave you the impression this was just a typical action/sci-fi flick.
The RoboCop reboot is moving forward with Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) in the lead role with Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) directing.
Chalk up another victory for Team Abrams, because veteran actor Peter Weller is joining the cast of Star Trek 2!
Director José Padilha isn't interested in simply rebooting the classic movie RoboCop for modern audiences.
Released in 1984, and starring a pre-Robocop Peter Weller, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension didn't catch on during its initial release, but currently enjoys a devoted following.
