Not to be confused with Robopocalypse, the upcoming Steven Spielberg and Drew Goddard movie, James Cameron’s Robogoeddon probably is to be confused, and easily, with Battlebots and Robot Wars.
I mean, on current information, it’s exactly the same show. Whatever twist there is, we don’t know about it yet.
According to The Wrap, Discovery revealed Robogeddon at their up-fronts this week. It’s not on the press release from the network, so I guess a big announcement is set for somewhere further down the line.
The show, co-produced by Cameron and Survivor creator Mark Burnett, is apparently set to feature robots fighting one another, in a style similar to those other shows. It even features contributions from Donald Hudson, a BattleBots champ. Here he is, at the Discovery up-fronts, with some sort of robot… erm… warrior?
I think you’ll agree, we’re a long way away from Skynet here.
