‘Robocop’ International Trailer: The Man in the Machine

Joel Kinnaman

Most of the Robocop marketing so far has focused on, well, Robocop (Joel Kinnaman). But before he was Robocop, he was a plain old human known as Alex Murphy — and as the latest international trailer reminds us, Alex is lurking inside of him still.

While there’s more than enough action to go around in this new promo, the real focus is on the very human cost of Omnicorp’s new robot police force. It seems that being brought to the brink of death and then revived as a freakish android-man hybrid tends to take an emotional toll on a guy. Watch the video after the jump.

Samuel L Jackson as Mace Windu

If Samuel L. Jackson can tell the world Elizabeth Olsen is in Avengers: Age of Ultron, maybe he can also tell us Mark Hamill isn’t in Star Wars Episode VII. Though the actor who portrayed Luke Skywalker has reportedly been working out for a likely return to the series, Jackson spoke to him recently and Hamill told him director J.J. Abrams has not been in touch. Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels, said the same thing to Jackson. Neither has had a phone call from the film’s writer, director and producer.

Does that mean there’s a chance Luke Skywalker isn’t in Star Wars Episode VII? Read More »

oldboy-aug-2

As fascinating as Josh Brolin‘s fierce Joe Doucett is, a story as dark and twisted as Oldboy needs a good villain to really tie everything together. So far, FilmDistrict has been playing coy with Joe’s demented tormenter, but that changes today with our first peek at Sharlto Copley as Adrian Pryce.

In addition, the marketing team has also revealed twenty more posters, one for each year of Joe’s captivity. They’re a great way to drive home just how long twenty years is — and a good reminder of how quickly we’re growing old. Has it really been two decades since Lorena Bobbitt chopped off her husband’s dick? Check ‘em all out after the jump.

Olsen Giamatti

Two big superhero assumptions were confirmed by actors today. First up, Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson, confirmed Elizabeth Olsen is joining him in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Second, Paul Giamatti, who makes a brief appearance as the Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, said he’s expected to come back for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 (which just got a trio of writers) but probably not The Amazing Spider-Man 4.
