More from the Asylum

While we're on Asylum and robots, here is the trailer for the exploitation company's "shadow version" of The Day the Earth Stood Still -- which seems to go with the blockbuster film's basic premise but adds lots of giant robots. And let's face it, giant robots are what we really wanted anyway -- not Keanu Reeves.

The Day the Earth Stopped (US-2008; dir. C. Thomas Howell)

Hundreds of massive intergalactic robots appear in all of the major world capitals with an ultimatum: Prove the value of human civilization or be destroyed.

Nice big robots!

And as if that isn't enough, here's one that's coming up which doesn't "shadow" a current blockbuster so much as exploit certain individuals' obsessive fascination for sharks and giant octopi:

Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus (US-2009; dir. Ace Hannah)

The California coast is terrorized by two enormous prehistoric sea creatures as they battle each other for supremacy of the sea.
