Robocop, 2014
While we didn't necessarily want this remake, it has been made, and we have to admit, we're intrigued by "RoboCop." The talent for this is certainly undeniable with "Elite Squad" helmer Jose Padilha guiding a helluva cast—Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel and Samuel L. Jackson—through futuristic Detroit. But can it even begin to come close to Paul Verhoeven's twisted perfection? Well, this new trailer is going to make a case for it.

Star Trek Into Darkness, Cumberbatch
In a lengthy profile in The Hollywood Reporter, Benedict Cumberbatch, the man of the hour following his deliciously villainous turn in this summer's blockbuster "Star Trek Into Darkness" and in anticipation of a streak of hotly anticipated fall movies in the form of "The Fifth Estate," "12 Years a Slave," "August: Osage County" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," the British thespian clarified some points regarding his involvement in "Star Wars: Episode VII," including his reasons for leaving Gothic horror movie "Crimson Peak." He also expressed interest in being in the next film directed by Gary Oldman. Weird British character actors have to stick together!

Robocop
Well, here it is… After endless speculation and just as many snarky, internet-based remarks, the trailer for the remake of Paul Verhoeven's satirical masterpiece "RoboCop" is here. And it's… something alright.

Happy Friday, streamers! Or, at least, it's a happy Friday for the Internet. As for those multiplexes... well, it's too soon to tell. But since we like to tie our streaming suggestions to the latest releases, here's a quick rundown. We're not sure what to make of "Kick-Ass 2" or "Jobs," and we're definitely not too excited about the star-studded (sigh) Liam Hemsworth vehicle "Paranoia." On the other hand, we are thrilled to suggest an alternate film—little known and highly underrated—starring Gary Oldman. Also a number of older picks, including a music documentary, a cheapo '80s fantasy flick, a major hit from last year, and a Criterion Collection gem from Indian auteur Satyajit Ray. The highly anticipated "Ain't Them Bodies Saints," while opening in theaters, isn't available on VOD yet (tune in next week!), but another indie slated for September is, and we've got the details here. So here we go!

Review: 'Paranoia' Starring Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, Amber Heard and Harrison Ford

We don’t envy makers of techno thrillers. Go too tech-savvy and you lose most people who don’t know anything about technology except that the best way to fix their gadgets is to turn them off and then back on again (guilty). Go too simplistic and there’s no real hook to your story beyond the pretty people and a heart-pounding score. Either extreme also carries the pitfall of being laughed at in a decade or even just a few years. Remember “The Net”? All that said, the bland, boring “Paranoia” does little to distinguish itself and isn’t good (or even enjoyably bad enough) to be passable even as Saturday afternoon cable fodder. And we say this as people who will sit through “Deep Blue Sea” every time it's on.

Gary Oldman Eyeing Ralph Fiennes & Benedict Cumberbatch For His Sophomore Directorial Effort 'Flying Horse'

It has been seventeen years since Gary Oldman dropped his feature length directorial debut and cult fave "Nil By Mouth," but he hasn't yet followed it up with anything. Not that he's been short of ideas. Back in 2011, he said he wanted to team up Colin Firth for an unnamed remake, while in early 2012 he said he had a project about a sex addict he wanted to direct. Well, the good news is that Oldman does have a new directorial effort cooking, and the surprising part is that it's none of those.

On the one hand, the chance to watch Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford chew scenery and growl at each other is one that shouldn't be passed up. But man, is sitting through "Paranoia" going to be worth it?

At 66 years old, David Bowie is showing the kids how it's done. With a new album on store shelves (where stores still exist), is Bowie going on a wild world tour, talking to every press outlet possible and making appearances wherever he can? Nope. Instead, he's making the kind of ambitious music videos we used to get two decades ago. Earlier this year he delivered the great spot that featured him and Tilda Swinton playing husband and wife in "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)," and now he's reteamed with director Floria Sigismondi for another equally memorable promo.

Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman are beginning to be old pals. The actors have teamed together on a string of strong films, with "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Lawless" under their under their belt, and it's probably safe to say they're getting along quite well. Because again they're going to be paired up in a film with a cast that just keeps getting strong and stronger.

With shooting just a few weeks away, casting for Matt Reeves' "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" is ramping up quickly. So far, apart from the motion capture actor extraordinaire Andy Serkis, the film features "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee, the boy from Reeves' previous feature, "Let Me In." And yet another big name has joined the cast, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "The Dark Knight Trilogy" star Gary Oldman.
