'RoboCop' Trailer: The Future of American Justice

The year 2028 doesn't sound that terribly far away, but a lot can happen in 15 years, people (just ask anyone who remembers the '98 film scene what they think about Hollywood's big re-make machine today).

In the case of "RoboCop," an arguably unnecessary re-tooling of the 1987 award-winning original, technology has advanced to the point that a half-dead police officer can be revived by way of machinery and computerized mind control to become an ass-kicking cyborg who/which does the bidding for this big, evil corporation OmniCorp ... that is, until his even more powerful sense of self-governance sets in and starts to glitch up the system.

Looks like Alexander Skarsgard won't be beating his bare, chiseled chest while romping through the jungle any time soon — unless, of course, "True Blood" takes an unexpected turn for its sixth season.

That sound you hear is women across the world groaning in collective dismay, by the way.

Per Deadline, Warner Bros. is — at least temporarily — pulling the plug on the David Yates-led reboot of "Tarzan," which was set to feature "Zero Dark Thirty" femme Jessica Chastain as the dame Jane. Reportedly, the production halt stems from the studio being uncomfortable with the budget on-hand, but there may be a second lurking matter at issue, too: casting. Get More »

'Pulp Fiction' Almost Starred Daniel Day-Lewis and Matt Dillon

Pulp Fiction Miramax

In the 19 years since "Pulp Fiction" hit theaters, the film that made Quentin Tarantino a superstar has become a bona fide cinematic classic. Hell, it was a classic from the moment it first screened at the Cannes Film Festival. But as a new oral history of the film in Vanity Fair shows, "Pulp Fiction" was almost a very different film.

Jackson, who played purple lightsaber-wielding Mace Windu in each installment of the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy, is totally excited about Disney's resurrection of the franchise — and gives a hearty "Hell yeah!" when asked if he'd be up for reprising his role in the new films, according to E!
