Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns

Around the time that the forthcoming The Dark Knight Rises went into pre-production, Warner Bros. and the newly rechristened DC Comics Premiere Movies (formerly DC Universe Animated Original Movies) announced that the next two direct-to-video animated features starring Batman would be based on two of the greatest stories of the Caped Crusader ever told. Late last year Batman: Year One made its debut and was greeted with warm praise from critics and fans who had been apprehensive about how the classic comic book miniseries would translate to animated movie form. The second of the two Batman animated projects is by far the most eagerly-anticipated of the DTV Bat-films, considering that it is an adaptation of what is routinely referred to as the greatest Batman tale of them all.

The Dark Knight Returns, the groundbreaking 1986 miniseries that took Batman in a bold and startling new direction and became one of the hallmarks of modern comic book storytelling, will provide the basis for the next animated Batman movie. The original series took place in the future where an aging Bruce Wayne, now 55 years old, emerges from retirement as Batman to rescue Gotham from the clutches of a rampaging street gang called the Mutants. Soon not only does he find himself battling crazed punks, but also the supposedly rehabilitated Harvey Dent, his oldest archenemy the Joker, and even his longtime ally Superman, now an agent for the U.S. government.

Ever since MGM announced several years back that they were putting a remake of the 1987 sci-fi action classic RoboCop into production not much progress has been made, which fans of the original film would see as a blessing. For a time Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain) was attached to direct the remake, but he moved on to other things. Most recently Brazilian filmmaker Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) was handed the reins of the RoboCop redux, and the director gave an interview to Comic Book Movie about his plans for the remake and what he hopes to accomplish by taking on a beloved genre film.

Robocop Trilogy Blu-ray

Fans of the 1987 science fiction classic RoboCop and its sequels will be excited to see that the entire RoboCop Trilogy will be released on Blu-ray this Fall.

It all started in 1987 with Paul Verhoeven‘s (Total Recall, Starship Troopers) classic tale of a good cop named Murphy who is gunned down by a gang of ruthless killers, and then transformed into a super part man/part robot cop who sets out to clean up the streets of Detroit by any means necessary.

He does his job effectively at first, but as he struggles with remnants of his past memories flashing before him and new technologies controlled by those greedy for power threatening his very existence, RoboCop’s mission will not be accomplished easily.
