    This Full-Length, Crowdsourced RoboCop Remake Is as Weird and Funny as It Sounds [Video]

    The guys behind Our RoboCop Remake are sick of the Hollywood remake machine, so they decided to do something about it. They broke the original RoboCop down into separate segments and let a whole lot of filmmakers each remake a piece so they can ruin RoboCop before Hollywood does, and the result is pretty fun to watch.

    Here’s a Hilarious Homemade Shot-for-Shot Remake of the RoboCop Trailer to Get Your Day Going [Video]

    We've got mixed feelings on the RoboCop remake. The first trailer got us really excited, but now we've seen some more action movie-style trailers that haven't left us feeling so hopeful. Maybe that's why we enjoy this homemade recreation of one of the trailers so much. Or, it could be that it reminds us of Home Movies. Whichever.

    New Robocop Reminds Us It’s an Action Movie, Not Just an Existential Examination of Free Will

    We were excited for the first Robocop trailer, but it was a cautious optimism. We've been burned too many times by great trailers that resulted in terrible movies. (Spider-Man 3 *cough cough*) This new trailer for the film sure has a lot more action, but it also has a lot less of what we loved about the first trailer -- character.

    In No Uncertain Terms, The Robocop Trailer Looks Amazing

    I think it's fair to call most people's feelings about the Robocop reboot "hesitant optimism," but ermagherd the trailer is incredible. I know an excellent trailer doen't mean an excellent film (see: Man of Steel), but this fills us with hope. Even if the movie is terrible, at least we have two incredible minutes of hope.

    Robocop’s New Suit Doesn’t Look Like Batman Anymore

    A couple of months ago, we were shocked and disturbed when images leaked from the set of the upcoming Robocop remake revealed that the cyborg hero's iconic look had been replaced by a black-plated suit strongly resembling Batman's costume in the Christopher Nolan trilogy. We're now happy to find that new concept art has surfaced, indicating that Robocop will, somewhere down the line, get some silver armor that looks more like the original than a generic "super-suit."

    The New RoboCop Looks Like Batman Without the Cape and Pointy Ears

    Everybody loves Christopher Nolan's Batman movies, right? Ok, maybe not; but can we at least agree that everybody's seen them? Of course we can. It's with that idea in mind that we present you with photos of the armor from the upcoming reboot of RoboCop, which is currently filming in Toronto, and on track to hit theaters next summer. Supposedly the first shots of the new suit, the new movie trades in the rounded chrome plates of 80's RoboCop for a sleeker, black suit that... Wait a second: Didn't that suit come with a cape?

    Mini ED-209 Robocop Made From Recycled Metal is Cute Welded to Fearsome

    I am nothing if not a fan of mechs, and I am stoked to say that it is a very, very good year for mechs. As if it wasn't good enough already (it is), this mini ED-209 Robocop junkbot is just gravy. A miniscule version of its sophisticated namesake, the mini ED-209 was constructed by TGNsmith out of recycled materials like  an old computer case and some spent propane tanks welded together with some love and ingenuity. The mini ED-209 junkbot actually has a big brother junkbot that weighs over 300 pounds, but this little guy has his own distinct characteristic: He's for sale.

    In his aptly titled work "Mt. BadA$$," DeviantARTist Fooray reimagines Mt. Rushmore as a monument not to great U.S. presidents, but to pillars of sci-fi and geekdom, with Iron Man, RoboCop, Boba Fett, and the Predator taking the places of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln, respectively.
