You can tell RoboCop made by someone who understands how to make an action movie – the editing is superb and the camerawork both muscular and dextrous. Outside of Samuel L. Jackson’s tabloid television host, Pat Novak, there’s almost none of the demented genius of the original – though there are more than a few homages to it.

Lots of great material to cover on this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News including our winners of the Best Films of 2013, February 2013 predictions, casting news for the Man of Steel sequel, and much, much more. Hit the jump for details or click play above!
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.
