First Trailer for 'RoboDoc: The Creation of Robocop' Film History Doc
"Part legend, part icon, all hero." The first trailer it out for a cinema history documentary titled RoboDoc: The Creation of Robocop. As the title clearly states, the doc film is about Paul Verhoeven"s seminal sci-fi classic RoboCop from 1987, and how it was made, and the influence it had, and the sequels that followed, and everything else. This project was funded on Kickstarter a few years back, and they're still working on finishing it up, getting it ready for release. "RoboCop has since become one of the most iconic and successful movies of the 1980s, a movie that was well ahead of its time and has left a lasting impression on fans across the globe. RoboCop is a film many fans watched as children when they were too young to understand the social commentary of this R-Rated movie, yet they were instantly hooked on the future of law enforcement." Indeed. This is a very long trailer (over 5 minutes!) but it covers plenty of the film's history and much more.
Here's the first trailer for Chris Griffiths' doc RoboDoc: The Creation of Robocop, from Facebook:
Robocop is a movie that impacted a generation, particularly young boys who were too young to watch it in the first place. RoboDoc is a feature length fan-funded documentary exploring the making of the 1987 cult-classic, the sequels and its 30 year legacy. RoboDoc: The Creation of Robocop is directed by filmmaker Chris Griffiths, of other film history documentaries previously including You're So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night and Pennywise: The Story of IT. The project was successfully funded on Kickstarter back in 2016, and is still in development and post-production now. They're hoping it will be completed and ready for release sometime in 2019. Stay tuned. Visit the film's Facebook page. Who's excited to watch this?
Weird franchise, to be honest. However, after seeing this, I miss Nancy Allen a bit. She was hot at that time ...

I think films like that made P. Veerhoeven to flee back to Europe. Films like Black Book or Elle, made after that, pretty much say for themselves, what he wanted to do. As for Nancy Allen, yes, she always seemed to be an interesting lady. Loved her unusual and straightforward roles (mostly, I guess). So you meet her, huh? Give her my best regards if you get the chance and remember this only if you want to (which is of course weird and unusual request, something you shouldn't take seriously). Anyway, cheers Bo ...

Those older films from Veerhoeven are something like ancient history. I saw some of them, and I thing Spetters might be one of them. I'm not sure of the other one. Of course, there were also others. But never mind since they had charm and I might look again for some them. They might be better than some newer ones we see these days around. As for Nancy A. and being a fan (or admirer) I don't know really what to say. Of course, one could be called that too (and that's what I also am, willing that or not), but I think I feel more like a respect for some people, for their work. I never really thought of actresses (or actors) as stars (although, many of them consider to be just that which probably makes them less actresses or actors though) but as a creators of something on the screen and I had respect for that (ok, I also admire to their work). I liked her back in 1970s and in 1980s and noticed that she disappeared from films after that period and sometimes asked myself what happened to her. Good to know she's doing fine and I would be thrilled too to know she's got a good word about her work from me. Nice thing from you in that respect Bo, thanks. Enjoy yourself, man, for being a decent person ...

Definitely not surprised, yet you enjoyed Repo Man, which blew my mind. You're a complicated man Bo.

I haven't watched the trailer but I'll certainly look out for the documentary. There used to be a time where a making of feature on the DVD or Blu ray would do a good job of telling you about the making (the platoon, predator, jaws, kingsman ones to name a few) but now the making of's seem to be a collection of quick jump cuts, set to music and endlessly interspersed with clips from the film. I don't need to see need clips from the film as I've bought the film, just tell me about the making of the film please.

News clips were the best bits.
