Geostorm

We’ve already seen most weather and natural disasters covered in one of Hollywood’s big disaster movies. So it was only a matter of time before someone made a disaster movie with ALL the disasters.

Warner Brothers has released a teaser trailer for Geostorm, which is the feature directorial debut of Independence Day writer and producer Dean Devlin. The movie takes place in a time when natural disasters have gotten out of hand, causing the world’s leaders to create a technology that can control the weather. This, as you’ve probably figured out, goes horribly wrong. Starring is Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Alexandra Maria Lara, Daniel Wu, Andy Garcia and Ed Harris.

You can read much more about the movie and check out the first trailer below.

RoboCop Remake Theatrical PosterRoboCop

Columbia Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 118 Minutes

“I’d buy that for a dollar!”

Directed by Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven, 1987’s RoboCop is a sci-fi satire that explores themes of greed, privatization, capitalism, dystopia, and identity. The film spawned two theatrical sequels, two animated series, and two live-action television series – not to mention comic books, video games, toys, and theme park rides.

Because the RoboCop franchise was popular and profitable in the ’80s, it was only a matter of time until Hollywood resurrected it. For an industry that rides a fine line between creativity and commerce, movie studios see remakes as a way to mitigate financial risk. Why take a chance on new ideas and original scripts when they can dust off a recognizable brand and put a “new spin” on it, appealing to the audience’s collective nostalgia for said brand? For studios, remakes operate on the simple principle that, even if it sucks, it will still make money.

And so here we are, in the year 2014, with a RoboCop remake by Brazilian director José Padilha, best known for the 2007 crime film Elite Squad and its sequel, 2010’s Elite Squad: The Enemy Within (the highest-grossing film in Brazilian history). The Elite Squad films are action-packed; filled with intense violence, police corruption, and political commentary, which is probably why MGM and Sony chose Padilha to direct in the first place.

RoboCop (2014) Header Image

This isn’t the RoboCop you remember. Paul Verhoeven’s film was a mix of over-the-top violence and a satire of the American culture, and while some may be hesitant about José Padilha‘s vision of the film, a new trailer for the remake could change your mind.

The new trailer for the film has premiered online, and it looks to smooth over some of the lingering rough edges that were left behind by the first trailer, which was more concerned about the violence than paying homage to the original.

Watch the new trailer here below.

SDCC 2013: RoboCop panel banner

Anticipation for the RoboCop remake has been hit or miss since the project was announced, which made the Sony/Screen Gems panel at San Diego Comic-Con today the first big chance the filmmakers had to get everyone on their side. On hand to talk about the film were director Jose Padilha, and actors Joel Kinnaman (The Killing), Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch), Michael Keaton, and fan favorite Samuel L. Jackson.

The panel started with a solid 5-minute clip showing Samuel L. Jackson as a TV host, sending out a broadcast showing some ED-209’s in action in the Middle East, while Michael Keaton’s character tries to convince members of the government that robots can be used as police instead of humans.

Director Jose Padilha explained that he wasn’t going to attempt to do the same movie that came out in 1987, but wanted to take elements and put them in a modern context where combat drones are a very real thing.

Seven Psychopaths Header

There has just been a slew of red band trailers being released this week, and now you can add Seven Psychopaths to that list. As you may have seen from the first trailer, the film centers on a down-and-out screenwriter and his two friends (Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken) who partake in the dog kidnapping business. When one of them accidentally kidnaps the dog belonging to a emotionally unstable gangster (Woody Harrelson), the three are on the run for their lives.

Take a look at the f-bomb filled red band trailer (because that’s the only reason why it is red banded) here below.

Those who had been slightly turned around on the decision to remake the sci-fi classic RoboCop thanks to the very impressive cast that had been assembled were again disappointed when it was announced that Hugh Laurie, who was once in talks to play one of the film’s villains, had departed the project. But now it looks like an equally appealing name will be stepping into Laurie’s villainous role.

It’s being reported that the great Michael Keaton has joined the cast, where he’ll play the not-so-friendly CEO of the company that builds RoboCop.

Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths is the follow-up to Martin McDonagh’s Academy Award winning film In Bruges (please watch the film if you haven’t yet). The first trailer for the film has appeared online and it looks nothing short of hilarious. Check it out below.

The premise is pretty simple: three people working in the dog kidnapping business (Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken) unwittingly take a dog that belongs to an emotionally unstable mob boss (Woody Harrelson). From there it is escaping the mob, trying to survive, and figuring out how to make a profit from all of this.
