Ryan Murphy to Helm HBO’s “Looking”

1 April 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

During a panel discussion following a press screening last night for HBO FilmsThe Normal Heart, HBO President Len Amato (pictured left) announced that Ryan Murphy, the film’s director, would be taking over as showrunner for the HBO original series Looking in its second season.

HBO had a great experience with Ryan on Heart,” Amato said. “We’re really thrilled about continuing that partnership and seeing what his unique vision will bring to Looking.”

Looking, which follows three gay men in present-day San Francisco, received mostly positive critical reviews but failed to pick up the kind of watercooler buzz surrounding HBO’s more popular series. Industry insiders view the decision to bring Murphy on board as a clear-cut strategy to bring in a wider audience.

During the panel discussion, Murphy elaborated on the exact changes he plans to make in Looking’s second season. “The biggest change — and the »

The Walking Dead, Ep. 4.10 “Inmates” – it’s not exactly Shakespeare

16 February 2014 9:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Walking Dead, Season 4, Episode 10: “Inmates”

Directed by Tricia Brock

Written by Matthew Negrete & Channing Powell

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on AMC

Ever since Scott M. Gimple took over as showrunner, it’s become clear that he and his team of writers have tried, as hard as they can, to put to rest any unfinished storylines and unanswered questions left over from season three. Yes it took some time to clean up after the mess, but to be fair, he did have to continue from where Glen Mazzara left off. This meant killing off busloads of extras who we never got to know – killing of The Governor once and for all– and blowing up an entire prison, forcing our survivors to move elsewhere. “Inmates” served to get things moving ahead even more. By structuring the episode as a series of vignettes, in a non-chronological order, we catch up »

10 Ingredients To Making A Perfect Modern Day RoboCop Film

16 February 2014 3:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

MGM

It was always going to be tricky and challenging to reboot RoboCop. Paul Verhoeven’s original 1987 masterpiece is revered for much more than surface level cyborg on crime action, but its poignant social commentary that fearlessly tore into the world around us.

Over time those themes have expanded in relevancy, and it shows in the reboot – most notably with Samuel L. Jackson playing a caricature of Rush Limbaugh and robots filling in for American armed forces. The majority of what was depicted and alluded to in the original also rings true today too – maybe Paul Verhoeven has a time machine - as the reboot still tackles corporate greed, man and machine, and more with a sense of relevancy.

Paul Verhoeven just executes this with class and brilliance compared to the somewhat miscalculated reboot; the original is the very definition of timeless. But the reboot isn’t a total disaster without redeeming qualities either. »

RoboCop review: I will notify a cinema crisis center

10 February 2014 11:46 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

No black humor. No satire. No point. But hey, check out the 1987 catchphrases dropped in at random! I’m “biast” (pro): love the original…

I’m “biast” (con): …but saw little point in remaking it

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I was not feeling optimistic about any reboot or remake of Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop, which is still brutally relevant 27 years on. Could anyone find a good reason to update this flick when the original still has the power to shock us today? And then this new RoboCop opens in “sunny Tehran,” where “random patrols” by Ed-209s, unmanned walking tactical tanks, and Em-208s, android soldiers, keep the peace as part of the U.S.’s “Operation Freedom Tehran,” which makes the good people of the city feel safe and secure, we’re informed by a blowhard conservative TV host gleefully sharing this »

What the RoboCop remake gets right

7 February 2014 5:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 10 Feb 2014 - 06:05

We delve into the RoboCop remake to provide a spoiler-filled look at how it compares to the original, and what it gets right...

Nb: this article contains spoilers.

The problem with most modern movie remakes, perhaps, is that they're a compromise where commerce frequently trounces art. With brand-aware studios keen to revive old names and properties for the sake of profit, it becomes the job of a new generation of filmmakers to rework an existing idea for a contemporary and often suspicious audience.

When it came to bringing back RoboCop, the level of internet cynicism was understandable: how could you possibly equal - let alone improve on - one of the most respected genre films of the 1980s?

Director Jose Padilha's RoboCop remake doesn't have the unfettered, angry edge of his Brazilian Elite Squad movies, but that's understandable given that he's made a $130m »

X-Men Director Bryan Singer Haunted By a Poltergeist

6 February 2014 1:56 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Well, no, not really, but that would make for a pretty interesting story too, no? In any event what we're talking about here is a new adaptation that's on its way for Scott Chitwood’s comic Haunted.

Haunted is a four-part horror action-adventure written by Scott Chitwood (Drone, Dead or Alive), illustrated by newcomer Danny Luckert, and colored by Ivan Plascencia. It is also featured in Red 5’s 2014 Free Comic Book Day issue. Bryan Singer’s Bad Hat Harry Productions is to produce the adaptation.

As Red 5 is an independent publisher, the best way to ensure your copy of Haunted this spring is to pre-order it by the end of February from your comic shop using order code FEB141420. Haunted #1 of the four-issue series is set for release on April 30, 2014. Check out a preview below.

Comic Synopsis:

In the story of Haunted, the barrier between our world and the spiritual realm was mysteriously torn apart, »

Exclusive: First Listen To 2 Tracks From 'RoboCop' Score By Pedro Bromfman

3 February 2014 8:30 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"RoboCop" is returning to the streets of Detroit, with a brand new suit of armor, but with the same directive: "Dead or alive, you're coming with me." And bringing this new version of "RoboCop" to the big screen is award-wnning Brazilian filmmaker José Padilha, making his Hollywood debut. It can be a challenge for many directors to make the leap into a blockbuster sized production, but to help get his vision of "RoboCop" across, Padilha called in the skills of a regular collaborator. Composer Pedro Bromfman is the man behind Padilha's critically acclaimed sensation "Elite Squad" and the smash hit followup, "Elite Squad: The Enemy Within," and he's reteamed with the filmmaker for "RoboCop." Below, we have two exclusive tracks from his work on the upcoming film, the propulsive "Mattox And Reporters" followed by the dynamic, "First Day."  Bromfman is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, recipient of »

9 Crushes We All (Stupidly) Had On Old-School Game Girls

Eidos Interactive

Give a man a fishing rod, and he’ll never go hungry again, yet give a man access to a collection of pixels in the vague shape of anything resembling the opposite sex, and he’ll dedicate endless fansites to it until the end of time.

Did you ever stop to think just ridiculous the depiction of women has been in the years gone by? Whilst I personally don’t agree with everything Anita Sarkeesian has been putting out in her videos analysing the tropes of sexuality within mass-produced games, you need only take a look at the likes of the Dead or Alive or Soul Calibur series to get an idea of how ridiculously-proportioned those characters are.

True, the men in the rosters of fighting games are just as bulked up and over-the-top, but it must be said the games of old focused somewhat too much on »

“American Idol” Recap: Detroit Rock Classy

23 January 2014 5:28 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I’d hate to disappoint everyone, but we’re at episode three of American Idol‘s thirteenth season and I’m still enjoying it. Scary. Duck under your desks and pray to St. DioGuardi, because this is an emergency, children.

What can I say? Our three barristers J-Lo, Hatchet Harry, and Comely Keith are a joy! Their shiny beige complexions are captivating! And we haven’t seen too many infuriating contestants, if that’s what we’re calling them at this stage. “Laryngeal larva,” perhaps? ”Pop pupas,” maybe? Maybe not, also. But the best thing about this season so far — and I didn’t realize this until I reflected on Wednesday’s episode of Detroit auditions — is we’ve heard plenty of great song choices. No montage yet of contestants who all picked “Fallin’” or “Because of You” or “My Neck, My Back” or whatever the year’s obvious big ballad is. »

Watch: First Full Clip, OmniCorp's CES 2027 Presentation, TV Spots & More For 'RoboCop'

15 January 2014 11:38 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Dead or alive, this remake is being made. Yep, "RoboCop" has been rebooted, bringing back everyone's favorite cyborg for more action and less satire. And if this first clip is anything to go by, you might want to stick with Paul Verhoeven's version for the time being. Employing a beyond-dorky rock 'n roll soundtrack, seemingly to dress up the otherwise dull video game action, we're not quite sure what the tone here is supposed to be. Cool? Earnest? Intentionally ironic? If the latter, it's not really that funny and has us worried that that "RoboCop" will be nothing more than another generic action flick, just with an unconventional hero. And that would be shame given the extensive promotional campaign this thing has been given, particularly when it comes to the fictional OmniCorp, with their 2027 CES Presentation (and audience reaction), attempting to add some depth to this redo. We'll leave it in your hands. »

Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate Will Get Marie Rose And More This Spring

13 January 2014 9:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dead or Alive has always been a bit controversial, and I truly wish it didn’t have to be that way. I mean, I can understand purist, function-over-form indie-obsessives crying foul over the series’ blatantly indulgent ways, but that doesn’t have to mean a healthy interest or even love for the series is invalid. Unfortunately, it seems that the upcoming patch and subsequent character addition for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate will do little to quell the cries of naysayers. The updates feature new outfits and the Lolita-inspired Marie Rose, respectively – Lolita, if you didn’t know, is a word defined as “a sexually precocious young girl.” Pretty much par for the course with DoA.

The announcement of Marie Rose’s upcoming console appearance came via Team Ninja leader Yosuke Hayashi at the recent Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate tournament, at which he also revealed that the 1.04 patch will be gracing »

Joel Kinnaman gives the 'RoboCop' remake a fresh new face -- Exclusive Photo

10 January 2014 4:12 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 RoboCop is widely hailed as a sci-fi-action classic, and if you’re the kind of hardcore fan who can spout quotes from memory (“I’d buy that for a dollar!” “Dead or alive, you’re coming with me”), you may be understandably a little wary about Sony’s upcoming remake, which hits theaters Feb. 12.

Actor Joel Kinnaman (AMC’s The Killing), who’s stepping into the role originally played by Peter Weller – a mortally wounded Detroit cop turned into a deadly law-enforcement machine by a sinister corporation — totally gets it. Kinnaman grew up loving Verhoeven’s film »

RoboCop TV Spots Prove America Needs A Robo-Hero

7 January 2014 1:24 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Dead or alive, you.re going to bear witness to quite a bit more marketing for José Padilha.s upcoming RoboCop reboot, which could potentially put an end to U.S. crime forever, or at least until the inevitable sequel. I think the film.s success next month is tied heavily into people reneging on their New Year.s resolution to "never watch another godawful Hollywood remake again," although even a cynic like me has downgraded RoboCop.s existence from awful to better than Total Recall.s remake. Have you been seeing the TV spots pop up? We.ve got three of them for you. The top clip, via ComingSoon, is a domestic one, while the other two, via Comic Book Movie, come from Sony.s Taiwanese YouTube page. For being such short clips, they.re all good at conveying the heart of the story, which is all about robots »
