Robocop Will Throw the First Pitch at a Baseball Game Tonight, but the Robocop Statue Will Have to Wait
Unless it breaks the law, then Robocop will escort the baseball to jail.
Tonight at a Detroit Tigers (they are not real tigers, but humans) basesball match against the Toronto Blue Jays (we've yet to confirm whether they are birds or humans) Robocop will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, possibly at a criminal.Read More
There And Back Again
This charming series is the work of Jeff Victor, whose art we've featured previously. If you have young ones this might benefit -- or an empty spot on your grown-up wall -- he's got a poster print available for sale. The V, W, and X panel makes for an interesting discussion piece on the signature outfits of female characters, wouldn't you say?Read More
Things We Saw Today
Part remake. Part spoof. All hilarious.
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.Read More
Here’s a Hilarious Homemade Shot-for-Shot Remake of the RoboCop Trailer to Get Your Day Going [Video]
Serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law, and make sound effects with your mouth.
We've got mixed feelings on the RoboCop remake. The first trailer got us really excited, but now we've seen some more action movie-style trailers that haven't left us feeling so hopeful. Maybe that's why we enjoy this homemade recreation of one of the trailers so much. Or, it could be that it reminds us of Home Movies. Whichever.Read More
Get In Loser We're Going Shopping
'Spolions! Boom boom!
We were excited for the first Robocop trailer, but it was a cautious optimism. We've been burned too many times by great trailers that resulted in terrible movies. (Spider-Man 3 *cough cough*) This new trailer for the film sure has a lot more action, but it also has a lot less of what we loved about the first trailer -- character.Read More
"I got to work on the remake of 'Robocop' with Michael Keaton and Gary Oldman. And pretty much all my scenes were with Keaton. Oldman was in most of 'em and Jennifer Ehle and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. And so here I am with Commissioner Gordon and Batman from two different generations together and I was there privy to the moment where that penny dropped and they realized that. It was like, 'Wait a second, you're in the new one? Who you playing, Gordon?' 'Yeah, Batman.' It was like, 'Oh my God!' But then to hear production stories about 'The Dream Team,' about 'Johnny Dangerously' and fucking 'Batman,' 'Beetlejuice,' I mean -- and then from Oldman I got to pick his brain about 'State of Grace,' about 'The Professional,' the Nolan Batmans. And that's the thing, it's like it's like a bit of an agreement. I think they're fine talking about it if I'm actually interested. And they saw that I am [really] a movie nerd. That's the one thing I'll be super fucking arrogant about and say I know my shit. And so when they talk to me they can see that. And it was just like it's a movie nerd's dream to get to be with fucking Keaton and Oldman every day." - RoboCop reboot actor Jay Baruchel speaking with HitFix.com.Read More
They even explain why the Robocop suit looked like Batman armor for a while!
I think it's fair to call most people's feelings about the Robocop reboot "hesitant optimism," but ermagherd the trailer is incredible. I know an excellent trailer doen't mean an excellent film (see: Man of Steel), but this fills us with hope. Even if the movie is terrible, at least we have two incredible minutes of hope.Read More
I'm not the biggest fan of reboots (not a fan at all, actually) so I guess that's why I hadn't been paying too much attention to the progress of the RoboCop reboot. Suddenly, we have our first trailer and I realize it stars amazing folks like Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson. Not only that but, I have to admit it doesn't look half bad. Admittedly, many films with great trailers turn out to stink so I'll wait and see, but at least they've got me excited for something I didn't want in the first place.

Kickstarter has given the world a lot of interesting things. Soon it will bring a larger-than-life statue of Robocop to Detroit. The project raised more than its $50,000 goal back in March of 2011, and the statue is finally ready to be cast in bronze. If you've ever wanted to see a pre-bronze Robocop statue, we have pictures after the jump.Read More
