A new four-minute video meant to sell Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop to licensing and promotions companies might just end up selling you on the film, too. It features a ton of concept art from the film, including huge battles with multiple OmniCorp products and explains how the suit will evolve from the silver one similar to the original film to the black one that’s been a hot topic since images of it leaked online some weeks ago.

Check out the video after the jump.

[EDIT: The video has been removed, but we still have a rundown of what it entails below]

Did ‘RoboCop’ Get a New Suit?

There was no small amount of derision fired towards the RoboCop remake directed by Jose Padilha for the suit design sported by the main character, played by Joel Kinnaman. The assumption was that he was going to wear that suit throughout most of the film — after all, in Paul Verhoeven’s original movie, the character didn’t get new armor every ten minutes, so we’ve assumed a similar approach this time.

That might be wrong.

An image posted to Instagram today shows a suit that the photographer says is the suit the character will wear through “the whole film.” It’s better than the last, if a bit Ultron-like. Check out the image and some possibly spoilerish info below. Read More »

Julian Assange is Australian, and his former right-hand man Daniel Domscheit-Berg is German, but it seems both will be portrayed by UK citizens in the movies. Bill Condon‘s developing WikiLeaks movie cast white-hot Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch as WikiLeaks founder Assange last month, and now James McAvoy looks likely to take the role of disillusioned WikiLeaks spokesperson Domscheit-Berg.

The film is based on two books, Domscheit-Berg’s tell-all Inside WikiLeaks: My Time With Julian Assange At The World’s Most Dangerous Website and journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding‘s WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War On Secrecy. More after the jump.

Having weathered MGM’s financial woes and some last-minute digital revamping to avoid pissing off the Chinese, the Red Dawn remake is finally ready to hit theaters next month. A first trailer hit a couple of months ago, and now the first TV spot has arrived to remind us of the absurdity we can expect. Watch the video after the jump, then stick around for more photos from RoboCop and a casting update on a new Little Rascals.

Two of the biggest rising stars in Hollywood might team up to tell a still-unfolding story filled with secrets, leaks and infamy. DreamWorks has been developing a biopic of Julian Assange, the controversial face behind WikiLeaks, with Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) likely to direct. Over the summer rumors circulated that Jeremy Renner was in talks for the lead but Deadline now reports Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness) could possibly play Assange with Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, RoboCop) as his right hand man, Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The script, based on two books on Assange, was written by Josh Singer.

First Look at a Suit From the New ‘RoboCop’

I’m reluctant to say that this is absolutely 100% the design for the new RoboCop, despite the fact that these pictures were snapped on the Toronto set of Jose Padilha‘s new version of the story. I say that because I’m not certain that we’re seeing Joel Kinnaman in the suit there, though it could be a stuntman in a version of the suit that Kinnaman wears.

Still, these are pics of a suit from the set of the new RoboCop, and so, combined with what we’ve seen of the new ED209, they give us some idea of what this movie is going to look like. Check out full-size shots below. Read More »
