This Full-Length, Crowdsourced RoboCop Remake Is as Weird and Funny as It Sounds [Video]
Part remake. Part spoof. All hilarious.
Like most of us, the guys behind Our RoboCop Remake are sick of the Hollywood remake machine, so they decided to do something about it. They broke the original RoboCop down into separate segments and let a whole lot of filmmakers each remake a piece so they can ruin RoboCop before Hollywood does, and the result is pretty fun to watch.
The list of different people involved in making it is huge, and here’s what they have to say about the movie on its website:
Our RoboCop Remake is a crowd-sourced film project based on the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic. Connected through various filmmaking channels (including Channel 101) we’re 50 filmmakers (amateur and professional) from Los Angeles and New York who have split the original RoboCop into individual pieces and have remade the movie ourselves. Not necessarily a shot-for-shot remake, but a scene-for-scene retelling. As big fans of the original RoboCop, and as filmmakers and film fans admittedly rolling our eyes at the Hollywood remake machine, we’ve elected to do this remake thing our own way.
Our RoboCop Remake premiered in Los Angeles on January 26th and New York on February 5th. On February 6th, it was released online.
Because if anyone is going to ruin RoboCop, it’s us.
