Though there was little doubt about how this was going to go down, The LEGO Movie trounced everything else that hit theaters, then ate them up and spit them out. Which means that both Pompeii and 3 Days to Kill better hope for better international numbers. 

Box Office Roundup: 'The LEGO Movie' Trounces 'RoboCop'

No one really loved the new RoboCop. In fact, most of the pans and praise covered the same territory. Assembly line films get assembly line reviews. And audiences seemed to be able to tell that was the case. Which may be why The LEGO Movie stayed on top. But it may also be because it's really good and everyone loves it.

This week there are three remakes hitting theaters. You could have called this a remake weekend, except Winter's Tale came along and ruined everything. RoboCop, About Last Night and Endless Love are the aforementioned remakes, all taken from 1980's movies. And yet none of them have enough public awareness to rocket to the top past The...

'RoboCop' First Clip: Joel Kinnaman Fights Robots

Published by

Joel Kinnaman
We've never been all that positive on a remake of RoboCop, especially when it was apparent that the film would go for a PG-13 rating, but we're trying to keep an open mind about it now that we're so close to seeing it. The first clip inspires some confidence as it shows off a scene that isn't a beat for beat steal from the original, which is rare these days. Perhaps they've made it...

In a fairly clever marketing turn, the upcoming RoboCop remake is collaborating with the real police force out there to urge you to not drink and drive. Well, they don't want you to do that but they really want to remind you that the RoboCop movie is coming out early next year.

Joel Kinnaman
There's not a lot of people who are looking forward to the RoboCop remake, and for good reason. The 1987 film is a sci-fi classic in its own right, so to see this suddenly emerge out of nowhere doesn't make too many fans of the original happy. But maybe they'll be thinking a little differently once they check out the latest trailer for the flick.

'RoboCop' Remake Trailer Is Just As Awful As You Assumed It Would Be

Published by

Robocop
Look, not all remakes are terrible—we acknowledge that.  The Magnificent Seven, The Thing, The Fly, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Ocean’s 11, etc., are all remakes that we can enjoy.  I just want to establish that our reaction to the RoboCop remake trailer isn’t some kneejerk anti-remake reaction; rather, it’s simply the total revulsion that comes...

The remake of Robocop keeps rolling forward, despite casting changes, rampant rumors of a director in over his head, and an utterly underwhelming robotic body that basically looks like Christian Bale’s batsuit with Judge Dredd’s helmet attached.  But hey, now he has a motorcycle!  You’ve just gotta see it!

Things just seem to be getting worse and worse with the upcoming RoboCop reboot.  After news broke of a hilariously bad script, casting negotiation breakdowns, and a production out of the director’s control, pictures have leaked of the new RoboCop suit.  And, instead of actually looking like a robot’s body with a face attached to it (like in the excellent original), now it just...
