An all-new crop of unofficial images from the Toronto production of the RoboCop remake don't just show off Joel Kinnaman in his robo-costume again, they also reveal a novel form of transportation for Detroit's foremost robotic law enforcement official.
After years – years! – of breathless anticipation for the conclusion to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, it's possible that Batfans are suffering from withdrawals since The Dark Knight Rises arrived in theaters worldwide two months ago. With that in mind, we've been keeping on eye on the Blu-ray and DVD release of The Dark Knight Rises, which is lucky, because Warner Bros. has revealed a release date, as well as collector's edition packaging and a partial listing of special features.
When The Dark Knight Rises is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download, you have Warner Bros.' permission to watch it legally. Right now, Christopher Nolan's conclusion to the bat-trilogy kicked off with Batman Begins is still playing in more than 1,500 theaters, but we nonetheless know just when The Dark Knight Rises will arrive in a variety of home entertainment formats.
December 3rd of this year, meaning you'll have just about three weeks of shopping time to get it for the rabid Bat-fan in your family.
Principal photography on a remake of RoboCop began over the weekend, providing out very first look at Joel Kinnaman as the titular part man, part machine, all cop.

The remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1987 masterpiece that nobody was asking for commenced principal photography over the weekend, and that means our first look at the title character in the new RoboCop.
Here at IAR, we haven't said too much about the casting of the RoboCop remake, partially because there's been so much of it, but mostly because the notion of a RoboCop is something we're still having trouble getting out heads around. In this case, though, we're making an exception. Why? Because the newest addition to the cast is a proven source of onscreen excellence: Michael Keaton.
Opening in theaters on August 29th is the new film from Austrailian director John Hillcoat (The Road) and musician/screenwriter Nick Cave (The Proposition) called Lawless. The movie is adapted from the novel "The Wettest County in the World" by author Matt Bondurant and is based on a true story. Lawless features an incredible cast of actors that includes Shia LaBeouf (Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Jason Clarke (Texas Killing Fields), Jessica Chastain (The Help), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland), and Dane DeHann (Chronicle), with Guy Pearce (Lockout), and Gary Oldman (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had an opportunity to sit down with acclaimed director John Hillcoat to talk about Lawless. The talented director discussed his new film, actor Tom Hardy's unusual performance, the relationship between Jessica Chastain and Hardy's characters, casting underused actor Jason Clarke, reuniting with Guy Pearce after The Proposition, Gary Oldman's minor role, and working with Shia LaBeouf.
