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.

With Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop, not only is the title character getting a new suit, apparently he’s getting a new mode of transportation too. While the RoboCop of 1987 was happy piloting a standard police cruiser, the RoboCop of 2014 (the film was just pushed back) will rock a sleek new motorcycle. After the jump, check out a ton of photos of Robo’s new ride as well as a video of the bike in action. Plus, get a glimpse of his gun, a fan-favorite feature of RoboCop. Read More »
Briefly: It always seemed weird that Neill Blomkamp‘s second film, Elysium, would be a March 2013 release. Granted, from what we’ve seen of the movie it looks like smarter, tougher sci-fi than most summer fare. But as the movie features Matt Damon escaping from the polluted surface of Earth to make use of medical technology on an elite space colony called, it also appears to have high entertainment value. I’d hope that a film like that could be marketed into summer success.
Evidently Sony feels the same, as the film is now scheduled for August 9, 2013. That’s a good late-summer berth for a smart sci-fi film, and roughly the same spot in which Blomkamp’s District 9 became a solid hit in 2009. So, all’s good, right? Well, part of the move is based on the fact that the Aug 9 date became vacant when MGM, Sony and Columbia realized that the Jose Padilha reboot of RoboCop is going to need more time in the oven. So that has been pushed to February 7, 2014.
Sony made a couple other small date changes, too, as Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Lefotovers will now open onSeptember 27, 2013, and the feature version of Pixels has been pushed back from a May 23, 2014 date to an unspecified time slot. [Variety]

Whatever the box office numbers indicate, I’m inclined to believe there are plenty of original ideas left in Hollywood… but you won’t find them here, because this post is all about the remakes. After the jump:
- More Robocop pics; Aimee Garcia joins cast
- Get first looks at Carrie and Evil Dead at NYCC
- Allen Hughes is remaking A Bittersweet Life
- Game of Thrones director will remake Jar City
- Brett Ratner is producing Disney’s Flamingo Kid

Much like the old school VH1 TV show, Gallery 1988 is having the best week ever. Their Melrose location currently has the amazing Return of the Great Showdowns exhibit on the walls and this coming Friday, September 28, their Venice location opens an insanely clever and cool exhibit by popular pop artists Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo.
The show is called Around the World In An ’80s Daze and is comprised of travel posters for locations from famous ’80s films and TV shows. Stuff like The Terminator, Caddyshack, Vacation, A Nightmare on Elm Street or Thundercats. Opening 7 p.m. September 28 at Gallery 1988 Venice, Around the World In An ’80s Daze remains on display through October 20.
While each artist has already revealed a few posters to tease the fans, /Film is proud to debut three new posters each for this super exciting show. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
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 »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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 »
