RoboCop Returns - New sequel by Neill Blomkamp

    So it seems we're getting a new RoboCop film.

    What's known:

    It's being directed by Neill Blomkamp.

    It'll be a sequel to RoboCop 2, and will thus retcon RoboCop 3 out of existence (I usually hate this trend towards retconning unpopular sequels but RC3 had all the entertainment value of a pimple on my asscrack)

    Peter Weller probably won't be back in the armour (too old and has said in no uncertain terms that he's done with Robo)

    I'm excited. I liked the remake and was hoping for a sequel to that but this beats those dreams by some distance.

    Sharlto Copley playing RoboCop or the villain. Calling it now.

    I even think Robosop 2 was a bit shit, to be honest. Only part I genuinely liked was the failed experiments.

    But the original is my favourite film of all time. I didn't mind the sequel, though it felt like a shadow of the original.

    Blomkamp is a good fit for director. Given how much of a none-starter that sequel to Aliens he was attached was, I'll want to wait and see something a bit more concrete first. This does feel a bit more likely though.

    The greatest attribute of Robocop 2 is that it’s not Robocop 3.

    On one hand this is :
    “A true sequel to Paul Verhoeven 80’s bloodsplatter masterpiece, from the director of District 9!”

    On another hand this is :
    “A remake of RoboCop 3 from the director of Chappie”

    Chappie was not that bad. It had a lot of charm and those 2 musicians did a pretty damn good job I think, considering they're not actors. I'm totally hyped, Blomkamp is the fucking perfect choice. I'd buy that for a dollar!!

    Robo 2 is underrated. Cain getting unleashed in the warehouse was awesome and brutal.

    The remake is dogshit imo, as was robo 3.

    If it has the sequence with the stop motion robocop 2 prototypes screwing up and murdering people, I'm in.

    Robocop 2 was a piece of shit, adapted from the script of a massively racist comic writer who is now a laughing stock for views that make Trump look like a liberal.

    This guys needs to fuck off. He doesn't get Aliens or Robocop.

    He's the melt that the Last Jedi Remake dicks want making films, neither understanding nuance, satire or parody.

    TBF, Robocop 2 is fantastic, Kershiner never gave a fuck and it's almost a piss take of the ridiculous idea of franchising Robocop.

    Or crazy English director, who managed to make a zero budget grabfest into a reasonable fun cash cow

    RoboCop 2 was shit, "brutal" maybe but the black violent humour of the first just tipped over into sadistic violence.

    The malfunctioning robocop models were fairly amusing though.

    I wonder if this will be as good as his Aliens sequel.

    Didn't mind the reboot a few years back so kind of wish they just carried on with that.
