‘RoboCop’ Exclusive Interviews with Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Abbie Cornish

Part man. Part machine. All cop. The future of law enforcement is finally here, as Sony releases the long anticipated RoboCop reboot in theaters this week. Joel Kinnaman stars as a resurrected street cop who is saved by advances in technology. Turned into a cyborg by OmniCorp, he is let loose on the mean streets of Detroit to clean up crime. But soon, he is questioning his prime directives, and on a mission to solve his own attempted murder. It's a controversial move to return to such a classic, but director José Padilha (Elite Squad franchise) has turned in a movie that is completely his own, and removed from the sequels that have come before it. We go in-depth into the making of the movie, as Todd Gilchrist meets with the cast for a series of exclusive interviews. Watch as he goes one-on-one with Alex Murphy himself, Joel Kinnaman, his wife, played by Abbie Cornish, and the mad scientist behind it all, Gary Oldman.

RoboCop was released February 12th, 2014.

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’: Gary Oldman Reveals Story Details

20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set 15 years after the events of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, where the apes have now taken over the San Francisco area and humans are struggling to survive. While doing press for his upcoming reboot RoboCop, Gary Oldman offered new details on his character Dreyfus, while revealing that director Matt Reeves wanted to tell a more human-centric story, as opposed to Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

It isn't quite clear yet if Dreyfus will return for Planet of the Apes 3, but 20th Century Fox is clearly confident enough in the sequel to green light a third movie, which Matt Reeves is returning to direct. The studio announced last month that Planet of the Apes 3 will be released on July 29, 2016.

Near the end of the interview, when the reporter lists off the actor's many accomplishments in the biggest genre films of our generation, which include appearances in the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sequel alongside substantial roles in Harry Potter and Batman, the subject of Star Wars: Episode VII was thrown into the mix. And it seems that J.J. Abrams assertion that LucasFilm has reached out to every actor in Hollywood is somewhat true.

Gary Oldman to Direct ‘Flying Horse’

Actor Gary Oldman is readying his next directorial project, a biopic on film pioneer Eadweard Muybridge entitled Flying Horse. Ralph Fiennes and Benedict Cumberbatch are being eyed to star, although no deals have been confirmed yet.

Eadweard Muybridge was a photographer who helped settle a bet for California governor Leland Stanford in the late 1800s, who believed that a horse had all four hooves off the ground while running in full stride, although this could not be detected by the human eye. Using an array of 12 cameras he helped prove Stanford right, paving the way for the motion picture projector and the film industry as we know it. However, Eadweard Muybridge is also famous for murdering reputed theater critic Major Henry Larkyns, who was having an affair with his wife, Fiona. This biopic will focus on this love triangle, with Ralph Fiennes being eyed to star as Eadweard Muybridge and Benedict Cumberbatch circling the Major Henry Larkyns role.
