We’ve got a few new posters to present today, and the one that might be of the most interest is a high-quality teaser banner for Jose Padilha‘s RoboCop. We saw a much less detailed version of the same image over the summer, but with this one you can combine some of the detail seen here with the suit shots that appeared online over the weekend to get a better idea of how the new RoboCop will really look.
Then there is a stylish new poster for Skyfall, and finally, just because it’s fun, we have a new one-sheet for the Jackie Chan film Chinese Zodiac. Read More »
At Comic Con this year, Jackie Chan showed up to talk about his lastest film, Chinese Zodiac. (Aka CZ12 in some places.)

Based on the Hall H presentation, we know that some of the wide shots of the suit in action are the stuntman, rather than Jackie, but this is still a solid action sequence.

Jackie Chan brought his 100th film, Chinese Zodiac, to the Cannes Film Festival this year, but he also arrived with some news that has been a few years coming: he’s done with bit death-defying action movie setpieces.

Today, the multi-hyphenate clarified that while he’s too old to do some of the action he’s known for, he isn’t done by a long shot. Read More »
