June 3 was declared RoboCop Day in Detroit, with the half-man, half-bot making appearances all throughout the city in honor of the movie remake's DVD and Blu-ray release. There was even supposed to be an unveiling of a giant, commemorative statue in the character's honor, but that hit a bit of a snag. Instead, we have footage of RoboCop throwing the first pitch at a Tigers vs. Blue Jays game.

Battle of the RoboCops: Is the Remake Better Than the Original?

After years of moaning and teeth-grinding from fans, the instantly-controversial remake of 'RoboCop' has arrived in theaters. Like so many fans of Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original, we were dreading this day like no other. Even if the remake was a good movie, it would still be a remake

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘RoboCop’ Gets Taken Down by ‘The LEGO Movie’ and ‘About Last Night’

When 'RoboCop' got pushed from an August 2013 release date to February 2014, everyone assumed it would open stronger when far away from the busy summer months. If this is the better of the two options, then we can't even imagine how poorly it would have opened in the warmer months. The remake of the 1987 classic is definitely not a disaster, but it most certainly underperformed.

‘RoboCop’ Review

A few weeks back I was watching TV with friends who don't follow movies that closely. On came the ad for 'RoboCop.' They were baffled. “Who needs this?” they asked.

Forget that we were all old enough to remember the first one. This wasn't just defending our childhoods. If you want to step on a classic – and 'RoboCop' is something of a classic – you better come correct. What's this new one going to offer? The original's action and sly satire aren't dated. Who needs this?

I am afraid I must report that nobody needs this.

“You’re Busted”: Samuel L. Jackson Goes Off on News Anchor Who Mistook Him for Laurence Fishburne

There are good days, there are bad days, and then there are days when you confuse Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne and find yourself at the mercy of an actor whose voice can make even the strongest man whimper in terror. This sounds like a joke, but it actually happened on live television, and since this is the internet, it will never go away and the news anchor who made the tragic error will never live it down.

‘RoboCop’ Photos Show Off Star Joel Kinnaman, New Robot Costumes

If you think the 'RoboCop' marketing machine has spent the past few weeks in high gear, you're right. After all, no 2014 film has to win over movie fans quite like this one, but that's the baggage you take on when you decide to remake one of the most beloved films of the '80s. Will a new batch of photos from the film change any minds? Probably not, but the more we see from 'RoboCop' '14, the more adjusted (and the less annoyed) we get by its mere existence.

New ‘RoboCop’ Clips: “I’d Put Those Guns Down If I Were You” [UPDATE]

If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that the upcoming remake of 'RoboCop' will be, by default, bigger, louder and faster than the original. A new clip from the film only confirms this, making it very clear that this particular iteration of the cyborg police officer was created in the age of CGI.

‘RoboCop’ Clip: “Whatever You Do, Don’t Get Shot in the Face”

From the moment it was announced, the remake of 'RoboCop' has courted controversy and fan outcries. The first trailer did little to assuage people. Neither did the second. But, will a full clip from the finished film actually change their mind?
