Robocop prequel

RoboCop Returns

District 9 director Neill Blomkamp was previously working on a new RoboCop project that would act as a direct sequel to the original 1987 movie, following in the footsteps of recent retcon sequels like Halloween in 2018 and this year’s Terminator: Dark Fate.

Remember that new RoboCop movie that Neil “Chappie” Blomkamp was going to direct? Well, it’s still happening. Blomkamp took to social media to give some updates on the film, called RoboCop Returns.

RoboCop Poster Print

Part man, part machine, all cop. That’s the tagline you’ll find on the original teaser poster for the 1980s favorite RoboCop. The poster is a classic, and any fan can immediately picture RoboCop stepping out of the Detroit Police car, the lights flashing bright red as your imagination runs wild with the prospect of having a robot police officer taking care of justice on the streets.

You might not have realized this, but that theatrical poster  for the Paul Verhoeven movie wasn’t simply a touched up photograph. The original RoboCop poster was actually a painting done by artist Mike Bryan. Thanks to Justin Ishmael (the former head of Mondo who made the collectible art and pop culture shop the hotspot it is today) and the folks at Bottleneck Gallery, you can own a perfect recreation of the poster that takes the incredible image of RoboCop and gives it a nice shine with metallic inks. You can even get a RoboCop poster print that looks more like the original painting rather than the final poster. Read More »

Now Weller is back as RoboCop – not in the new movie (yet), but in a series of bizarre commercials for KFC. If you’ve always wanted to see RoboCop interrupt a random family’s movie night and threaten their lives if they don’t try his chicken, today’s your lucky day.
