Robocop Remake To Get Dr. House?

It seems that the upcoming remake of Robocop may soon have a cast member who'll be trading in his cane, Vicodin pills, and sarcastic scowl for a villainous grin. Hugh Laurie, fresh from completing his 8-year run on House is ready to tangle with Detroit's newest cyborg policeman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Laurie is currently in negotiations to play the film's villain, who is described as the "evil and ultra-rich CEO of Omnicorp, the company that makes Robocop."

From the sound of things, the character could be an update on the scheming corporate second-in-command, Dick Jones played by Ronny Cox in the original film.

Will America's favorite cyborg cop be able to stand against an unending barrage of witty, sarcastic one-liners?

While fans of Chuck Norris and old-school action films await the star-packed release of The Expendables 2 on August 17, it may be the case that such a thing is redundant, given the amount of pure Chuck that's already out there.

This montage/trailer cuts to the chase and gives the world a swift karate kick of explosive action to the face that will briefly take the planet off its axis due to the fact that the gravitational force generated by Chuck Norris IS that axis.

ThunderCat Stuck In A Tree

Posted June 13, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

You didn't need the Sword of Omens to tell what happens when a ThunderCat is "on the loose" near an extremely climbable tree in a park full of dogs.

Poor Lion-O is stuck and yet too proud to descend in the arms of firemen. So, what's his solution? Nothing.

Say what you will about He-Man's questionable fashion choices and friend-zone relationship with the gorgeous Teela, but at least he knows how to get down from a tree.

Batman Blows His Cover

Warning: Bad Language.

As we gear up for The Dark Knight Rises, it seems that Batman's most crucial secret may not have been much of a secret.

Set during Batman Begins, this video proves what we kind of suspected all along; that everyone knows Batman's secret identity as Bruce Wayne and that they've been simply humoring him so that his fragile ego remains intact enough to fight crime.

You see? The people of Gotham might not be stupid, after all.

Who knew that a loveable, family-friendly movie with Robin Williams could be re-edited into a sinister, dark thriller about a desperate and deranged father?

The Kessel Run: Star Wars Meets Cannonball Run

"You may not have heard of the Millennium Falcon, but you soon will.

Among a slew of professional smugglers, bounty hunters, and Imperials, emerged a new contender and a furry first mate in their modified freighter who are about to show the entire universe that this 18 parsec course can be done in less than 12!"

Some amazing behind-the-scenes footage from Return of the Jedi has made its way to the Internet after 30 years in hiding.

Taken at a 1982 shoot for the film, in which Buttercup Valley, CA served as the Pit of Carkoon, home of the mighty Sarlacc on Tatooine, you can experience this epic on-screen desert battle from an entirely different side of the Jabba's skiff.

Sit back, nerd-out, and watch things like Luke dispatching thugs, Leia in her iconic bikini aiming a gun at the deck, and **sob** the death of Boba Fett, all from a new angle.

Justice League Spinoff Blitz On Tap At Warner

It seems like Warner Bros is about to unleash a major barrage of DC Comic superheroes onto the big screen, most of which will be under the tent-pole of the proposed Justice League film that is once again apparently back on the table.

Projects like Justice League, to be penned by Castle and Gangster Squad writer, Will Beall and a Wonder Woman solo film penned by Green Lantern co-writer, Michael Goldenberg are the latest on tap. They now join titles previously known to be in development like The Flash, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Lobo, The Suicide Squad, and Shazam.

The studio has attempted numerous times to make a live-action Justice League film into a reality, but have always run into roadblocks such as the Writers Guild strike of 2007, or the underwhelming performance of last year's Green Lantern. However, the whole thing about Marvel's The Avengers raking-in what is at this point, nearly one and half BILLION dollars might have been the catalyst to get things moving when it comes to an array of superhero films with a connected universe.

Is this a smart move? Or is Warner about to spoil the party?
