Narcos co-creator and executive producer José Padilha (Elite Squad) is extending his stay at Netflix, with the streaming service releasing the first official trailer for his upcoming thriller series The Mechanism. Working from a script by Elena Soarez (Filhos do Carnaval), the eight-episode season is inspired by one of the biggest corruption scandals in Brazil’s history; focusing […]
Not only is José Padilha‘s reboot of Robocop (and I feel that reboot is more applicable than ever) on UK shelves today, it was also in the Bleeding Cool letterbox. Along with this t-shirt and Bluetooth headset. A far preferable option to having cybernetic functions actually drilled into the skull. We rather liked this movie, not […]
So, now we know: Cyborgs dream of electric Sinatras.
I'm looking forward to Robocop a great deal for two major reasons: Elite Squad and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within.
For most of its running time, this new trailer for the Robocop do-over shows us that there’s a man at the centre of this machine. I’m glad they’ve made space for this message in the marketing – not least because it bodes well for the tragic story of Alex Murphy’s exploitation being a well-explored part […]
Lula Carvalho's cinematography looks great and it does seem like the same mix of serious intentions and genre movie action.
Have a look at the EM-208, the ED-209 and more from José Padilha's upcoming Robocop film.
Doesn't pack the same perceived prestige as Kevin Spacey and David Fincher, but it does have the Escobar touch.
Man in suit. Robot suit.
The filmmakers show off some of their Robocop prep work and designs.

The new Robocop is playing mix and match with elements of the first. Makes sense.
He's looking pretty human.

Hugh Laurie was going to play the villain of the new Robocop, but then he wasn’t. Now Michael Keaton is, and that’s great because it means more Michael Keaton. Hurrah. Most interesting about Deadline‘s report, however, is that it includes a quote from director Jose Padilha: Michael is the final addition to the amazing cast […]
I should imagine it could go without saying that an early look at a film’s screenplay can’t be taken as a clear indication of what a finished film is going to be like. Not with a high degree of definite certainty, anyway. A script is a step in the process and the film has yet […]
She used to be a lady but now he's a man.
The film is yet to start production, but let's get a preview, shall we?
Hugh Laurie is the latest to join Jose Padilha’s Robocop, playing the cold and sarcastic “bad guy” CEO of OmniCorp. Or at least that’s how Variety put it. We know very well indeed that Laurie can do cold and sarcastic. I suppose he never quite did a villainous version of cold and sarcastic on House, but […]
There’s already a poster for Iron Man 3? Sure there is. There are merchandising licenses to be set up, so small wonder Marvel are giving the film some presence at the ongoing Las Vegas licensing expo. Looks like the Iron Man we know and love, just blurrier. High five, Iron Man. And here’s our first […]
