Yesterday was officially declared RoboCop Day in Detroit to honor the remake of the 1987 cult classic ‘RoboCop’ (duh) which was released on Blu-ray & DVD. There was supposed to be a RoboCop statue and a police meet-n-greet event but it was cancelled. The statue will still be made and is supposed to be unveiled by the end of 2014.
RoboCop did show up at the Tigers’ Comerica Park to throw out the first pitch but not with Joel Kinnaman the actor who portrayed him in the 2014 remake. The whole thing went down without a hitch and even in the bulky costume he still did a better job than 50 Cent did at the Mets v. Pirates game recently which he now claims is from ‘excessive masturbation’. No joke. Check out his excuse here.
I still would have liked to see Peter Weller in the original Robocop suit there too.
