<strong><em>RoboCop</em></strong> set for August 9, 2013 release date
Sony Pictures has handed out release dates for two very different movies, with RoboCop set for August 9, 2013, and the animated sequel Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers debuting December 20, 2013.

As of now, RoboCop has the August 9, 2013 weekend to itself, with Red 2 and The Smurfs 2 set for release a weekend earlier, on August 2. Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers also doesn't have any direct competition on December 20, 2013, although it opens a week after The Hobbit: There and Back Again debuts.

RoboCop recently confirmed that The Killing star Joel Kinnaman will portray the title character. José Padilha will direct from a screenplay by Joshua Zetumer.

Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn are directing Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, although no cast members have been announced yet.
