I can’t remember if I knew they were remaking Robocop, or if I’ve just forgotten but the trailer looks really good.
I very much enjoyed the original one, except for the rather ridiculous blood-letting at the beginning. Most remakes are a letdown, and this will probably be the same, but it certainly looks okay from the short clips in the trailer.
Other bits and pieces about the film world that I have opinions on but aren’t necessarily at the trailer stage yet.
- I tweeted about this when I first spotted it, but I really loved Matt Damon’s response when asked about the casting of his friend Ben Affleck as Batman. “I know there are a lot of people grousing on the internet. I just think it’s kind of funny. You know, he’s not playing King Lear. It’s Batman! Certainly within his skill set.” He’s praising him, but it just makes me laugh.
- This film looks difficult and serious but I do so like Steve Carell. Even when he doesn’t look himself.
- Details have been released on the new sequel for Jurassic Park and it’s called… drum roll, please: Jurassic World.
