ROBOCOP Set for IMAX Release on February 7, 2014

     September 19, 2013


Director Jose Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop will grace the ginormous IMAX screens when it hits theaters next year.  Sony and MGM announced today that the film will be digitally re-mastered into the IMAX format, giving fans the opportunity to check it out on the big, big screen.  Joel Kinnaman leads the redo, which takes place in 2028 and finds the sleazy OminiCorp putting its drone technology to use on domestic grounds by way of a part-man, part-robot police officer.  The experiment on Kinnaman is meant to be the first of many RoboCops that the company hopes to put in every city around the country, but obviously things don’t go as planned.  Watch the trailer here.

The film also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.  If you missed Steve’s recent interview with Baruchel about the film, click hereRoboCop opens in traditional theaters and IMAX on February 7, 2014.

    Since its coming out in the film dumping ground that is February, it probably won’t be that good.

      Or it’s so good that will face no competition and become a February blockbuster.

        That would be awesome, but history is against it.
