Though RoboCop was being compared to a "John Carter" by some, it turns out the box office returns for the movie might actually warrant a sequel.

RoboCop is closing in on $200 million worldwide from a $100 million budget.

To date, RoboCop has netted close to $51 million in the U.S. and a $136 million international gross with the movie released Valentine's Day weekend.

José Padilha directed the remake which stars Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy aka RoboCop.

Padilha previously made comments that the movie was "hell to make," but it looks as if all the hard work has paid off as certainly Sony can't ignore the fact that the movie has made almost double its budget.

Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley and Samuel L. Jackson also star in RoboCop.
