I went to a screening of the newly rebooted “Godzilla” in 3D in Regal’s RPX theater yesterday. I saw Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” in the same souped-up setting and really enjoyed the technical enhancements. Ditto for Gareth Edward’s $160M remake. The 3D image is bright and clear.

Joel Kinnaman in "Robocop"
Robocop opened a couple weeks ago in Asia to take advantage of the Chinese New Year holidays and took in a solid $5.5M from three small territories. I can see why after a press screening.
