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 »
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 »

The Robocop reboot has had its share of skeptics since the moment it was announced, and last month’s scathing review of the script from Drew McWeeny (of HitFix, and formerly of AICN) only seemed to confirm doubters’ worst fears about the project. Now another film writer has weighed in, however, and while his response falls short of glowing, it is significantly more optimistic.
Latino Review‘s Da7e has posted a video recounting the plot details for José Padilha‘s remake as spelled out in the draft he read, as well as a writeup on his reactions. Hit the jump to watch the video and read his comments.
Also after the jump: Robocop adds Gary Oldman‘s manager in an on-camera role, DreamWorks sets out to remake the ’80s comedy All of Me, and Dredd uploads some behind-the-scenes footage.

Action films in the Eighties were extremely distinctive. The featured big muscle-bound men accomplishing insurmountable tasks, decorated with squirting blood, massive guns and fists to the face. The names are legend: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris. The films are revered: The Terminator, Bloodsport, Commando, Cobra, Rocky III, RoboCop, Rambo, Aliens. And now Spoke Art has teamed up with artist Jon Smith to create an art exhibit that’s all about the craziest era in action film history.
It’s called Mucho Machismo: First Blood Part One and features works by Godmachine, James Flames, Tim Doyle, Methane Studios, Gabz, Alan Hynes and many others. The show opens in Oakland, CA Friday September 7 and will remain on display through September 28. Check out an exclusive gallery of images featuring all those films above and others after the jump.

Spike Lee is turning to some familiar faces to help round out the cast of his Oldboy remake. After adding his Do the Right Thing star Samuel L. Jackson a few weeks back, Lee is turning to his Red Hook Summer actor Nate Parker for another supporting role. The up-and-comer’s other credits include Arbitrage, Red Tails and The Secret Life of Bees.
A remake of Chan-wook Park‘s hit South Korean thriller, Oldboy centers around a man (Josh Brolin) out to exact revenge on the person who kidnapped and imprisoned him for mysterious reasons. Sharlto Copley plays the villain, while Elizabeth Olsen co-stars as a woman who aids and romances Brolin’s character. Parker is in talks to play a doctor colleague of Olsen’s. Oldboy will shoot this fall, likely for a 2013 release. [Variety]
After the jump, Carrie and The Evil Dead get synopses, and José Padilha responds to talk of Robocop difficulties.
