Robocop went in front of the cameras a few weeks ago, and it’s safe to say the response was pretty negative. Everything from the suit to the script was bashed endlessly, and still is. A few months ago tons of script details for the reboot came online, which sucked. Like, a lot. Anyway, the movie was set to hit theaters August 9th next year, but news has now hit via The Hollywood Reporter that Sony have pushed back the release date several months to February 7th, 2014. Of course, we shouldn’t worry, as tons of good movies are released in February.
Like Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
Anyway, there’s already plenty of rumours surrounding the push-back. One is that the studio want to convert it to 3D (which is likely), but the other option, which is probably true, is that the rumours that there were lots of troubles with the script and production were in fact true. Additionally, Neil Blomkamp’s upcoming sci-fi movie Elysium (which was set to release March 1 2013) has taken Robocop‘s old release date, so you’ll now be able to catch that August 9th 2013.
What do you think of this news? I can’t wait for Elysium, but could care less about Robocop. Share your thoughts below.
