It has just been announced that a 11 foot tall, 3,500 pound bronze statue of the sci-fi cyborg hero RoboCop will be placed within the City of Detroit in 2018.  After years of discussion and work by fans of the 1987 ROBOCOP movie that was set in a futuristic Detroit will see their vision become a reality.  2018 will be a great time for a visit to the Motor City to do some sight seeing including getting a photo op with RoboCop.

As you are planning your trip to Detroit to see this awesome statue, tune in this month to COMET TV to see the ROBOCOP movie trilogy.  COMET TV will be having ROBOCOP movie marathons throughout the month where you can watch all three films in a row.  Tune in on Friday, October 6 beginning at 8pm ET/PT, Sunday, October 8 at 2pm, Saturday October 21 at 10 pm and Thursday October 26 at 4pm.

ROBOCOP (1987)

In a violent, near-apocalyptic Detroit, evil corporation Omni Consumer Products wins a contract from the city government to privatize the police force. To test their crime-eradicating cyborgs, the company leads street cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) into an armed confrontation with crime lord Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) so they can use his body to support their untested RoboCop prototype. But when RoboCop learns of the company's nefarious plans, he turns on his masters.

ROBOCOP 2 (1990)

Cyborg Detroit policeman Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) is the sole officer on duty after the police force goes on strike against evil conglomerate Omni Consumer Products and its push to foreclose on the city of Detroit. Aside from dealing with the normal level of crime, Murphy must take on crime boss Cain (Tom Noonan), the spread of a dangerous new drug called "Nuke" and the attempt by psychologist Dr. Juliette Faxx (Belinda Bauer) to create another Robocop using a hardened criminal.

ROBOCOP 3 (1993)

Greedy corporation Omni Consumer Products is determined to begin development on its dream project, Delta City, which will replace the derelict Detroit. To achieve this end, O.C.P. is employing armed forces to bully residents out of the city, under the guise that they are just doing their part to reduce crime and root out thugs. After RoboCop (Robert John Burke) joins the civilian resistance, he sustains severe injuries but recovers to battle advanced ninja robots developed by O.C.P.
