New 'RoboCop' Trailer: Droning On

Not as rated R as I'd like, but not all bad either. A new trailer for Jose Padilha's RoboCop remake is online offering a better look at the film's plot. This time, it's not just Detroit that sucks so bad that robotic sentries are needed. It's the entire world that needs to be policed by hyper-violent killing machines. However, liberals don't cotton to the idea of a robot with a gun on American soil so Michael Keaton comes up with the PR-friendly notion of shoving a corpse into a robot. Problem solved!

'RoboCop' Remake Trailer!!!

They might have not screwed this up. The first trailer for Sony/MGM's Robocop reboot is here and, forgive me for saying, looks really good. Yes I know that 1987 original is a classic and there's some things that should not be messed with, but in the studio's defense, Samuel L. Jackson wasn't around back then. I don't want to live in a world where Samuel L. Jackson isn't in a movie about a robot cop. Elite Squad's José Padilha directs this update that sees OmniCorp looking to bring their success with drone warfare onto American soil by putting a RoboCop in every city. But they didn't count on the man inside the machine exerting his own sense of right and wrong. Get mad if you need to but I like what I see. At least he doesn't transform into a motorcycle.


This Giant Walking Robot Might Be The Coolest Thing At Comic-Con

Comic-Con used to be about the comics. Then it became about the movies. Now it's just a glorified parade of 400-lb. walking robots. Buncha sell outs these days. Wired magazine asked the Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects, the braintrusts behind Pacific Rim and Iron Man, to build them a damn robot. A huge one. And those tasked with the effort did a pretty damn good job, creating this ED-209 (Robocop) lookalike that was able to mirror the smallest of movements performed by whoever was manning the controls.


Tricky 'Jeopardy' Questions Forestall Inevitable Robot Apocalypse

IBM's artificial intelligence software will continue to compete on "Jeopardy" this week, in the form of a creepy computer named Watson. Remember Deep Blue, the computer that whooped some serious human ass in chess? After that, it seemed like our Matrix future was a foregone conclusion. Then The Matrix sequels sucked and years later, a computer is only doing okay at "Jeopardy." IBM's artificial intelligence software Watson will continue to compete on "Jeopardy" this week, in the form of a creepy computer. Walking computer encyclopedias Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings, two "Jeopardy" legends in the mighty Battlefield of Trivaland, are so far holding strong against the knowbot. Watson answered one question with "What is leg?," which made it look like a total asshole. So far, at the end of day one of three, Watson is tied for the lead with Rutter with $5000. I say, if it looks like it's gonna win, unplug him. With the economy as bad as it is still, we can't take any chances that some trivia bot with a desktop pattern that looks like sperm inseminating an egg is gonna take-our-jobs. (TV Squad)


Super Bowl Movie Ad Bonanza: Robots And Superheroes

Super Bowl ads, BYOG (Bring Your Own Guacamole) If you're watching tonight's Super Bowl, you may have noticed a few "commercial breaks," which are interruptions in the football game designed to sell products, which in turn pays for the game's being broadcast on television. This system of "TV advertising" has long gone both unnoticed and unremarked upon by Super Bowl viewers. During these breaks, there were several commercials advertising some big movies, including one for Cowboys & Aliens. Anyway, here are some Super Bowl ads for Thor, Captain America, and Transformers 3. Be sure to buy lots of concessions when you go see these movies in the theater as a result of seeing them here - the studios spent a lot of money on these: Transformers 'Dark of The Moon' Super Bowl Trailer (720p) from Michael Bay Dot Com on Vimeo.


This 'RoboCop' Theme Song Was Somehow Rejected

No justice. We've made no bones about our dislike of the RoboCop reboot around here (although we hear it's actually pretty good and you should go see it). But we're stubborn and the movie theater is several long blocks away so eff that movie. Here's another reason for our unreasonable hatred: this awesome theme song somehow did not make it on to the soundtrack. I can only chalk this oversight up to the fact that there is no justice. If only there were some kind of perfect hyper-violent lawman who didn't emote or sleep and only eats baby food to set this wrong right.


Flying Robots Perform The 'James Bond' Theme Song, For Realz

I don't say "for realz" often, so you know this is legit. Normally when you hear the words "flying" and "robots" you immediately think of some crappy Michael Bay movie. But today, when I mention flying robots, I'm not talking about some CGI bullshit. I'm talking about honest-to-goodness flying robots. And rather than causing death from above, as flying robots are wont to do, these little animatronic bastards are performing the theme song from the James Bond movies. What an age we live in. For this years TED 2012 conference, Engineers at the University of Pennsylvania pre-programmed the quadrotors to play the iconic song using instruments such as a a keyboard, cymbals, and a giant guitar custom made out of a couch frame. After all, its hard to play a regular guitar while you're flying through the air. Just as John Denver. Zing! What, too soon? (EW)
