Deadline‘s Michael Fleming is reporting that Steven Spielberg is delaying the start of Robopocalypse, the science-fiction action spectacular that was going to roll in March-April. Spielberg “isn’t dropping out of the movie” Fleming explains, “[but] he didn’t want to rush an expensive film.” I for one am glad the the Academy is liberal-minded enough not to regard Robopocalypse as Spielberg’s Norbit. The narrow view would be “what Best Picture winner goes out the morning after the Oscars and digs into a big effing robot movie?” But the Academy is better than that.
