Bet You Can't Say "Robopocalypse" Five Times Fast

"This will be good news for anyone who has wanted to see a big, explosive sci-fi film directed by Mr. Spielberg, as the project has a pretty simple logline: it is about 'the human race’s attempt to survive an apocalyptic robot uprising.'"
Steven Spielberg to direct Robopocalypse.

I don't want anyone touching robocop – but if they must, I still want Darren Aronofsky to do it.

Is it better or worse when Hollywood admits a movie's a remake?

I got to talk to Daniel Wilson for about five minutes when he was filming some stuff in Boston (around 2007-ish?). He has some pretty original ideas, is a quirky guy. First movie about the Machines that I'm looking forward to. Can't wait for his book to come out!

So it's War of the Worlds?

Those were alien robots. These will be robots of our own making. There will be irony. And somewhere, deep inside its Heideggerian questioning of technology, a man will learn what it truly is to be a father. So it's Jurassic Park, with runaway kitchen appliances.

So it's Terminator?

I did say it five times fast, but I think I just summoned Voltron. What do I do now?

Tired and Weary Robosoldier (above) is tired and weary.

And this differs from Transformers how?

AI2: The Reckoning. Or as I like to call it, AIII

AIII is also the noise I make any time someone suggests we watch "AI" again.

It's going to be pretty hard for Spielberg to top Maximum Overdrive.

So who is going to go over to Spielberg's house with the TERMINATOR movies on DVD?
I would, but I don't want to hear him talk about how it's different because the friendly robot who helps the humans in his movie will be really, really cute and have a sweet little electronic baby voice.
