Sony Pictures has released a new viral video for the remake of RoboCop via a CES Keynote Presentation from OmniCorp sent from the year 2027. This acts as a nice “prequel” to the film which takes place in 2028 and although it’s ambitious it simply feels as if they saw the Ted Talk viral for Prometheus and replaced Guy Pearce. Check it out below...

Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front.

You might recall that one of the highlights of the vast and varied promotion for Prometheus was the faux Ted talk given by Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland talking up his plans for the future. Sony and the RoboCop remake marketing team have torn a leaf from that book with this new viral vid, a mock Consumer Entertainment Show keynote address by OmniCorp in 2027 about the company’s new technological breakthrough. Sadly this one doesn’t boast a performer of Pearce’s calibre and it appears they couldn’t get Michael Keaton to do it in character as OmniCorp figurehead Raymond Sellars. The result, then, is a little mixed. While it definitely has the flavour of a big tech announcement from a company such as Apple, it feels more than a little forced and unnatural.As for the film itself, Jose Padilha’s team keep promising a different model of »
Damon Lindelof returns to the world of television this summer with a novel concept — literally and figuratively. The Lost co-creator is adapting Tom Perrotta’s 2011 bestseller The Leftovers into an HBO drama series (starring Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, and Amy Brenneman, among others) that follows the residents of New York town three years after a rapture-like event whisked away 140 million people across the globe. Pick up a copy of EW’s 2014 Preview Issue to steal a glance at a script page from the first episode, which is directed by Peter Berg (who is also an executive producer on the show). Below, »

Sony Pictures has released a new viral video for director Jose Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop remake by way of a CES Keynote Presentation from OminCorp in the year 2027. The film takes place in 2028 and finds the sleazy OminiCorp putting its drone technology to use on domestic grounds by way of taking blown-apart cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) and turning him into a cyborg police officer. The experiment on Murphy is meant to be the first of many RoboCops the company hopes to put in every U.S. city, but things don’t go as planned. This viral video teases OmniCorp’s development of the RoboCop, but it’s done in a haphazard manner that just feels like a cheap ripoff of the excellent Prometheus Ted Talk viral that featured Guy Pearce. Hit the jump to watch the new viral video as well as a batch of new high-resolution images. The film also stars Gary Oldman, »

Jose Padilha’s Robocop reboot arrives next month with more than a touch of trepidation. After all, Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 futuristic actioner is a masterpiece in violent satire and one of the finest film’s of our generation. Given the footage we’ve previously seen in trailers and television spots, The Elite Squad director’s new vision looks to be offering a genuinely unique and refreshing interpretation on the unfortunate circumstances for Officer Alex Murphy as his injured man merges with machine. We just live in hope it’s going to be a blast!
A brand new viral video has been released. Something similar to those of 20th Century Fox’s Prometheus’, which saw Guy Pearce’s Peter Weyland give a presentation on his controversial project in search of man’s origin. OmniCorp’s 2027 keynote presentation looks at the upgrade known a RC2000. I wonder what that could be?

When Prometheus hit theaters last year, many looking for a true follow-up to Alien were disappointed with a very different type of sci-fi movie from Ridley Scott. While I really enjoyed Prometheus, I too have been holding out hope for a direct Alien sequel that would capture the same horror that the 1979 film engineered. A movie like that may not be coming soon but it appears the new Alien video game may just do the trick. The newly announced Alien: Isolation from Sega appears to be the »

Long before his death behind the wheel of what is said to be a cursed Porsche 550 Spyder in 1955, cultural icon James Dean appeared as Frankenstein's monster in the Fairmount High School play "Goon with the Wind."
William Forsche recently uploaded a very rare image of Dean in full make-up as one of cinema's greatest creations to his Facebook page. Take a look at the goods below.
2014 is looking to be the biggest year for the Frankenstein monster yet with several films being released based on Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's titular literary character. Shelley crafted her tale, Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus, way back in 1818. How's that for staying power?
Unless you're either really young, really stupid, or have been living under a rock, you should know the story of Victor Frankenstein's monstrous creation and the havoc it caused, which has enthralled generations of readers and inspired countless writers of horror and suspense. »
