Joel Kinnaman gives the 'RoboCop' remake a fresh new face -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 RoboCop is widely hailed as a sci-fi-action classic, and if you’re the kind of hardcore fan who can spout quotes from memory (“I’d buy that for a dollar!” “Dead or alive, you’re coming with me”), you may be understandably a little wary about Sony’s upcoming remake, which hits theaters Feb. 12.

Actor Joel Kinnaman (AMC’s The Killing), who’s stepping into the role originally played by Peter Weller — a mortally wounded Detroit cop turned into a deadly law-enforcement machine by a sinister corporation — totally gets it. Kinnaman grew up loving Verhoeven’s film and admits he wasn’t initially all that interested in signing on to the remake. In the end, he says, he was won over by the prospect of working with filmmaker José Padilha, the Brazilian director of Bus 174 and Elite Squad, who promised a fresh take on the RoboCop story, one that would let Kinnaman delve a little deeper into the character of Alex Murphy, the man inside the metal suit.

“It was important to me that the visor not be covering my face all the time,” says Kinnaman (pictured above with Marianne Jean-Baptiste, who plays the Detroit Chief of Police). He laughs. “It’s hard to act with just your jaw.”

Zachary Quinto talks about the new horror movie, 'Banshee Chapter' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The new horror movie Banshee Chapter is full of familiar faces, including Katia Winter (Sleepy Hollow), Michael McMillian (True Blood), and the great Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs, Monk).

'The World's End': Check out behind-the-scenes footage from the sci-fi comedy -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you like Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, comedies set in British pubs, loosely connected film triptychs, and killer robots, then you probably saw Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End when it was released earlier this year. If you didn’t? Well, that would be rather peculiar, given your interests. Regardless, November 19 sees the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film, which will be available for purchase both on its lonesome and as part of a Cornetto Trilogy pack, alongside Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

To suitably lubricate your laughing gear in preparation for next Tuesday, you can check out an exclusive clip from the World’s End bonus features below. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?

Contracted-movie-poster.jpg

Did the condom-industrial complex (or “Big Propha,” as we conspiracy theorists like to call it) secretly finance Contracted? Probably not. But this new horror film from writer-director Eric England (Madison County) does sound like the ultimate in safe-sex commercials. Najarra Townsend (Me
 and
 You
 and
 Everyone
 We
 Know) plays a young woman named Samantha who contracts a gruesome disease after spending the night with a mysterious man (You’re Next screenwriter Simon Barrett) in what is being hyped as “a zombie film like you’ve never imagined.”

Contracted — which co-stars Texas Chainsaw Massacre II actress Caroline Williams and Charley Koontz from Community — is released theatrically Nov. 22 and will also be available on VOD from that date. But you can check out both the film’s new poster above and trailer below.

Phasers weren’t the only things set to stun when it was announced that Star Trek director J.J. Abrams would also be directing Episode VII in the Star Wars franchise. Fans of the two properties — who have long feuded over which franchise enjoyed true sci-fi superiority — did not quite know what to make of the same man now commanding both ships, so to speak. But what does the most famous face from Star Trek think about Abrams defecting over to the dark side…so to speak? READ FULL STORY

'Big Ass Spider!' director Mike Mendez talks about his big ass creature feature

Big-Ass-Spider.jpg

Is there a better name for a film about a big ass spider than Big Ass Spider!? We think not! But director Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers) says his self-explanatory creature feature, which hits select cinemas on Oct. 18 and will also be available on VOD, was almost released under a far-less-memorable moniker.

“The producers did not want to call it Big Ass Spider!,” recalls the filmmaker. “But I was very fearful that if we called it Mega Spider or something people would just think, ‘Oh, this is just another monster b-movie.’”

'Escape from Tomorrow' director Randy Moore talks about his Disney-parodying horror film

A few years ago, Randy Moore embarked on a family holiday to Disney World in Orlando. Moore had visited the theme park as a child and had warm memories of the place. Moore’s nurse wife, however, had never been to a Disney theme park before and found the experience an unsettling one. “She couldn’t take it,” recalls Moore. “We were at some princess fair and it was a really muggy day and all the kids were screaming and demanding their parents buy them ridiculously expensive plastic wands. It was bonkers. At one point, my wife looked at me and she said, ‘This is worse than working on the psych floor at the hospital.'”
