Robocop makes a move to IMAX beginning in February

Sep. 19, 2013by:

Those willing to give the ROBOCOP remake a chance might want to see it in IMAX come the release on February 7, 2014.

Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President said, "Jose Padilha has re-imagined this story in an exciting new way and we're thrilled to partner with MGM and Sony to bring it to audiences worldwide in the most immersive format IMAX."

After seeing the trailer, several of you were still on the fence about the flick. The there's the other half that would not buy that for a dollar. Shouldn't you do it for Michael Keaton? Doesn't he deserve your money? I can't wait on BEETLEJUICE 2 forevernever mind I can. Or you could throw your money at him and Aaron Paul in the NEED FOR SPEED movie.

I think we can agree that it was cool seeing the silver suit though you aren't going to get a movie full of that.

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees its chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

I totally agree with GodMagnus.

The bombing aspect sucks, and the suit looks like a SUIT, he should be a robot, WTF.

I'm looking forward to seeing it, not gonna amp my expectations or anything but I will give it a fair chance. I do agree that the suit is too human body armour and the fact that he is a bomb explosion victim in a suit annoys me too. Still, will give it a chance.

The only thing I want to do more than waste money on this...

Is waste even more money, watching it on an even bigger screen.
Because I hate having money.

Robocop is a machine with the face and brain of a human.
This new piece of shit is just a burn victim in a suit.

Am I missing something?

The movie will be out in February but the headline states January. Are we having IMAX screenings in advance? Can someone update me here?

Ummm...

Feb. 7 is not January. You got me to click, though, by making me think the release date had moved up as an IMAX exclusive or something. How is this news? Trailer says "experience it in IMAX" as well. Release date has been known for a while now.

I'm honestly very surprised this wasn't post-converted into 3D. This is not to say I want to be converted into 3D, it just seems like a typical big studio decision that might befall this film.
