The intriguing Robocop remake has a new poster (above) and trailer (following the jump). It should be killer in IMAX!

The first trailer for MGM’s Robocop reboot makes it clear that there is one big change at the most basic level of the story – from the moment he wakes up in his new form, Detective Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) knows exactly who he is. So the movie isn’t just a gussied up retread, it’s exploring some serious metaphysical ideas – under the cool new Robocop armor and explosions and stuff. I guess we won’t know if it’s as much a lacerating satire as the original until it opens. Robocop also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Abbie Cornish.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Robocop opens February 7, 2014.
Greetings once again from the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International!
For Part Two of our series of special 2013 SDCC episodes, the GeekScholars report on:
- The Amazing Spider-Man 2 first footage! (INCLUDING ELECTRO’S ORIGINS!)
- Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
- The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
Just in case anyone thought that the Robocop remake might not be as satirical as the original…
On this episode of GeekScholars Movie News, we begin by taking a look two very different trailers, as we review the first previews for the 5th installment in the franchise that literally will not die, Resident Evil: Retribution, and a new Glee-like comedy about a collegiate a cappella group, Pitch Perfect.
If you were going to remake any movie musical, which one would you pick, and who would you cast? That’s the question posed to the GeekScholars in this week’s topical discussion. We would love to hear what you think of our picks, as well as what your choices might be!
After that, GeekScholars Fox and Jill took to the theaters to partake in the adaptation of the 80s-styled musical, Rock of Ages, so listen in to hear their thoughts on a film that received rather mixed reviews from their fellow critics.
Finally, the GeekScholars quickly tackle some of the news stories of the past week, including: even more Robocop casting, a Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel, and new information about the Henry Cavill-led movie, The Great Wall.
