Robocop 20th Anniversary, Red Dawn, I Think I Love My Wife, Land of the Giants, Pathfinder, Charlie Chan, Simpsons and more

     June 3, 2007

Is this two DVD cover art articles in the same day? Yes, I’m finally getting caught up with the DVD announcements from the past few weeks and after this gets posted I’m going to try and finally get up a Warner Bros. update. Although with the amount of times I’ve claimed that I’m going to post it… you’d better not hold your breath.



Posted below are all the new announcements from 20th Century Fox since the last update. As you may notice from the first image, Fox acquired the MGM catalogue and they’re slowly working it into their arsenal, so can get ready for new versions of other MGM classic titles. Some of the images can be clicked on for high resolution versions.






Robocop 20th Anniversary Collector’s Edition DVD


DVD Release Date: 08/21/2007



When a good cop (Peter Weller) gets blown away by some ruthless criminals, innovative scientists and doctors are able to piece him back together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called “RoboCop.” Impervious to bullets and bombs, and equipped with high-tech weaponry, RoboCop quickly makes a name for himself by cleaning up the crime-ridden streets of violence-ravaged Detroit. But despite his new, hardened exterior, RoboCop is tormented by scraps of memory of his former life, and relives vivid nightmares of his own death at the hands of the vicious killers. Now he is out to seek more than justice… he wants revenge!
