ED-209 "Robocop"
Robocop might have disappointed at the domestic box office, but it’s making up for the difference overseas. With $52M after six weeks in the U.S., the remake looks like it’ll max out at $60M at the end of its run. That’s only slightly better than the original’s $53M, but with nearly ten times the cost.

Donnie Yen fights Any On in "Special ID"
Action-wise, Special ID is Donnie Yen's best since Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster.

(Movie-wise, it’s probably the lesser of the bunch.

Donnie Yen vs. Ken Lo in "Special ID"
Apparently, Donnie Yen’s no match for “The Wolverine.” The latter debuted last week against the former’s “Special ID.” I’m kinda surprised that China didn’t clear the slate for Yen’s latest actioner to protect local productions, but instead gave it direct competition for action fans from Hugh Jackman’s latest.

Andy On and Donnie Yen in "Special Identity"
News has been kinda scant on Donnie Yen’s crime thriller “Special Identity” since Vincent Zhao’s controversial departure. Shortly afterwards, Yen called upon three martial arts veterans to replace him: Andy On (“True Legend”), Collin Chou (“The Matrix Reloaded”), and Ken Lo (“Drunken Master II”). That’s more than enough to make up for Zhao’s presence. Since then, a few stills have surfaced online, but not much else.
