RoboCop Returns Has a New Director Who Knows a Thing or Two About Bringing People Back From the Dead

Terminator: Dark Fate didn’t exactly set the box office on fire, but its tactic of ignoring certain franchise entries and calling itself a direct sequel (see also: 2018's Halloween) still holds tons of promise.
