BOOK TRAILER
ROBOPOCALYPSE - 2011
By Daniel H. Wilson
Book Trailer created by Epipheo Studios

A cartoon about how to avoid a robot attack?

You are probably thinking of the book trailer for Daniel H. Wilson's ROBOPOCALYPSE.

This novel hit the ground running in 2010 with a great blurb by Stephen King and everything fell into place after that. It went on to become a New York Times best seller and quickly optioned into a movie. Not just any movie. Stephen Speilberg is not only producing it, he's directing it! Plus the screenplay adaptation is by Drew Goddard (CLOVERFIELD, CABIN IN THE WOODS)! All of which is a whirlwind of damn good fortune that has left Daniel Wilson gasping for breath.

The expected release date for ROBOPOCALYPSE is July 3, 2013.

But it never happened.

Then it was supposed to be 2014.

But it never happened.

MICHAEL BAY IS UNFORTUNATELY TAKING OVER STEVEN SPIELBERG'S 'ROBOPOCALYPSE'
by Sheryl Oh
We'll always remember Michael Bay as the requisite robot guy. He may have left the gig of directing the whole Transformers series behind him, but his perennial iron grip on noisy action fare will continue on through his next couple projects. One of these taps into blossoming writing talent that we've been seeing around a lot lately, and another happens to be a long-gestating project that was supposed to be directed by Steven Spielberg.

'Robopocalypse' Update: Steven Spielberg's Adaptation Doesn't Sound Dead Yet
By Jack Giroux
Back in 2013, Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's "Robopocalypse" was indefinitely postponed by DreamWorks and the director. Due to script and budget issues, Spielberg didn't feel the project was ready to go. We haven't heard much about the project's status since then, but now screenwriter Drew Goddard looks back on the experience, and offers up a small glimmer of hope that it could still happen.

Steven Spielberg Offers 'Robopocalypse' Story Details

Steven Spielberg still has his war drama War Horse in theaters, and next holiday season he'll put out another piece of potential historical drama Oscar-bait with Lincoln - but after that, the acclaimed director is returning to that other genre he seems to do so well in, with the sci-fi flick Robopocalypse, which was written by Cloverfield scribe Drew Goddard, and is based on a book by Daniel H. Wilson.
