Release Date: February 7 2014
The first big studio release (at least for the geek community) in 2014 is an early Valentine’s Day present. Enter the touching love story of a man and machine who have an ass-kicking, killing cyborg baby named RoboCop in this remake. Directed by José Padilha, the reboot will attempt to win over even the most ardent skeptic with a slew of fan favorite castings, including Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman, Jennifer Ehle, Jackie Earl Haley, Michael K. Williams, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson. Of course, the real star will be The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman stepping into the titular big metallic boots. The remake clearly wants to make the brand its own by taking a page from the Rolling Stones and painting it black.
