'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...

First Look: 'RoboCop' Remake Gets A Motorcycle

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!

Seven Psychopaths Movie Review
Who knew dognapping could be so deadly? In Seven Psychopaths, writer-director Martin McDonagh tells a twisted tale of murder, revenge and eventual redemption. On paper, it sounds like a hardcore crime drama. But it's actually a hilarious commentary on violence and a push for pacifism.

If you've been wondering why Hollywood showed a renewed interest in Colin Farrell recently, it's all because of his turn in Martin McDonagh’s 2008 film In Bruges. And if Fright Night and Total Recall disappointed, the good news is that Farrell is playing the lead in McDonagh's...

'RoboCop' Remake Script Leaks, Apparently Stinks

Published by

robocop
The modern remake or reboot: typically, it’s a film with rather low expectations attached.  Most (but not all) modern remakes are of the clunker variety—lifting the basic plot points of the original, but often with little to no translation of the subtext, chemistry, or intelligence that made the original film so popular in the first place.  And while no one seems to be expecting the...

Hugh-Laurie-on-House-550x333
After eight seasons of playing the stubborn, mean and selfish (yet utterly brilliant) genius that is Dr Gregory House, one might wonder what’s next on the cards for star Hugh Laurie. Well, now we’ve got the answer – he’ll be making a turn as an evil villain in José Padilha‘s upcoming remake for MGM of Paul Verhoeven‘s 1987 sci-fi...

Sucker Punch: Emily Brown as Baby Doll

This week in theater, the two gorgeous, bad-ass, blondies, Emily Browning and Abbie Cornish will be leading the way and battling their demons (literally) in Zack Snyder's (read interview) latest action-adventure, Sucker Punch. In a film filled with women, you'd expect there to be some cattiness, but not with these fine ladies, there was more likely to be group wolf...
