Two very different films, both released by Sony, now have release dates. The long awaited MGM financed RoboCop reboot, directed by Jose Padilha and starring Joel Kinnanman, will be hitting theaters on August 9th, 2013. That’s still a ways off, so don’t be surprised if Sony shuffles the film around some more.
Lastly, the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs sequel, titled Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, will be storming into theaters on December 20th, 2013. Again, that’s still a long time until release, so Sony may or may not move the films around.
I’m actually looking forward to the Cloudy sequel. The first film was a blast in theaters and even better at home. It’s creative, visually impressive and just an all-around fun movie.
I don’t think I can say the same for the RoboCop reboot. I haven’t been all that excited ever since director Darren Aronofsky left the project. It’s never a good sign when he walks away from material. Hearing this news does make me want to pop in the original film though.
