Fifteen years ago (and not to sound too receptive) A Bugs Life took over at the top on it's debut week knocking Shakespeare In Love into the runner up spot.
Finally twenty years ago Mrs Doubtfire was still the big film of February with Free Willy proving to be the big new film of the month.
It's got Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson so it should be fantastic right? Alarmbells ring when you realise it's the trailer for the Robocop remake due in 2014.
Why the skepticism? Fresh in our minds still is the Total recall remake which despite it modern gritty look and feel seemed to ignore the essence of the Verhoven original and left a bad taste in the mouth.
The trailer for this remake seems to do nothing to suggest it will do anything different for the other Verhoven classic. It looks grittier and more “real World” but from what I can tell seems to ignore the essence of the original, the fear that machine is taking over from man.
Maybe the human race has come a long way since the ‘90's and we no longer fear The Machine, it that's the case then maybe we should get a simple action based remake?
