Including the TV stuff (animated and live action)? Here I only see the trilogy plus the reboot. I doubt PD would be included here, since it was never released in this country. And who knows the legal stuff about The Series or the cartoons to put them in there...

All 3 original movies are there, as is the 2014 reboot. Not off to a great start though as they have put all three original movies details into a blender and assigned them randomly amongst the titles.

Interestingly, Prime Directives is listed, but only 2 of the 4 movies are included with Prime, the other 2 must be purchased to watch. The are separate entries for all 4 movies but are "unavailable in this region". They also have an entry for The Series but again it is unavailable here. No entries for any animated shows are there.

It also bugs me when they don't capitalise the C in RoboCop. They have done it for the reboot, the Series and Prime Directives, but not for the original 3 movies.

Rights for The Series are tricky...so many hands in that pie and everyone wants a slice...

Looks like MGM is sticking around, at least as a brand owned by Amazon. Just saw this news that they are even launching a new MGM+ streaming service: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/epix-mgm-plus-2023-1235228732/

There is no news about RoboCop, but seems very likely that all the RoboCop movies will be included as part of this streaming service. More importantly, if there was ever a home for a new RoboCop movie or show to pop up, this would be the place. Some new content has already been announced for MGM+. Seems like another cheap and irrelevant streaming service, and I can't imagine any RoboCop content they make would be very good. On the other hand, Hulu made a pretty good Predator movie recently that was a lot better than their average fare. So maybe this MGM+ thing could lead to something new for RoboCop, though I certainly won't be holding my breath.

Saw that posted on Facebook yesterday. Man, I´m getting tired of all that streaming services. You´ll need to have 3000 of them to watch 2 things you find interesting.

Anyway, I hope RoboCop has something new. Or maybe not. Don´t know. If they´re going to release just a cashgrab I´d prefer to leave the corpse alone.

You what's really funny is that the so-called "cable-cutting" has become more expensive than the cable service was in the first place... Talk about shooting ourselves in the foot...

Cable Cutting? Why are you mentioning the slaughter of John T. Cable from Prime Directives? Oh you mean doing away with Cable TV, my bad tongue I was thinking about the WRONG Cable-Cutting tongue Seriously tho, I'm not very keen on Jeff Bezos owning MGM either Confused

Amazon have announced a Stargate TV series and movie. So seems like they are now starting to utilise the rights they have acquired. Wonder if this will eventually lead to something new RoboCop related, as I assume RoboCop Returns and the Dick Jones TV series are not happening...

I think it´s the best. I can´t see how the "Dick Jones" series could work (unless they put a ton of money and have a TON of robots/cyborgs on it, which would contradict the first movie, where they had ED-209 and Robo as the machines).

I´ve read on Facebook Amazon is trying to revive RoboCop as well as a TV show (and maybe a flick). I think TV would fit RoboCop better at this point. They´d have time to develop a story, and I´m sure they´d have more freedom working on a streaming series instead of working on a very expensive flick. Remember, RebootCop was supposed to be "R-Rated" until the crew spent way too much bucks on it.

A season of RoboCop cases to solve sounds more appealing to me. And I could image using the original design for TV, but I´m not sure of picturing the original RoboSuit on a film.

A dick Jones TV show was never going to happen. It felt more like a off beat comment by Ed Neumeier that was never anything solid or backed up.

It always felt like a ridiculous idea.
