Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See ROBOCOP

     February 10, 2014

Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 action film RoboCop is a classic, and it’s very difficult to remake classics.  I have mixed feelings about trying to redo this film, but I was somewhat encouraged last year at Comic-Con when director Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) noted that there will be social commentary in his version just as Verhoeven has satire in his.  While I highly doubt Padilha’s film will have a toxic-waste-degenerated henchman getting destroyed by a car, the remake could still be entertaining in its own way.

I’m please to announce that we’re giving away 30 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of RoboCop.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Gary OldmanMichael KeatonJackie Earle HaleyMichael K. WilliamsJennifer EhleJay BaruchelMarianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. JacksonRoboCop opens February 12th.

You’re going to have to be quick on the draw for this one.  If you want to be among the thirty people who get admit-two passes, visit http://www.sonyscreenings.com/ROBOCOLLIDER or go to www.SonyScreenings.com/Redeem and enter the code: ROBOCOLLIDER [Please note that it may take a little bit for the page to load].  The screening is Tonight at 7PM at AMC Parkway Pointe, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable.  Please note that a pass is not a ticket.  To guarantee a seat, please arrive at the theater early since seating is first come, first serve.

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:

And here’s the official synopsis for RoboCop:

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 their chance for 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.
