“Robocop” Remake Pushed Back

Confessions of a Nerf Herder

Joel Kinnaman Normally when a film’s pushed back, it’s not a good sign. So, with that in mind, Jose Padilha’s Robocop remake has had its release date pushed back. Instead of the planning 7th February, 2014 release, the film will now hits screens on 12th February, 2014. I really wouldn’t read too much into this, as it seems to be just a case of Sony moving the date to accommodate the 7th February release of George Clooney’s The Monuments Men, which is also a Sony production.

The official blurb for Robocop reads:

In the film, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front.

Shares of Google (GOOG) are up more than 25% so far this year and the stock hit a new all-time high above $888 Tuesday morning.

So naturally, many investors are not just wondering if Google will soon hit $900. They are fantasizing about a quadruple digit stock price. After all, Google would “only” have to climb another 13% or so to get to $1,000. (Google, you may recall, is planning to eventually split its stock.

Warby Parker’s Dave Gilboa On Selling Frames From His Apartment, Partnerships, And A Big “No Comment” On Those Google Glass Rumors

Love Warby Parker!


Dave Gilboa, co-founder at Warby Parker, one of the e-commerce startups that has “made it” so to speak, shared some stories from the startup’s early days on an afternoon panel at TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2013, where he was joined by Everlane’s Michael Preysman, Nasty Gal’s Deborah Benton, Wanelo’s Deena Varshavkaya and moderated by TechCrunch co-editor Alexia Tsotsis.
