This one is very vague because it's been at least 20+ years since I saw this movie, and I was very young. But it's a sci-fi movie that I believe starts with a mummified/dessicated/skeletal body floating in space, and a ship retrieves what I remember as a reddish, football shaped object from it that turns out to be a killer robot that starts murdering people once it forms itself. This sound at all familiar to anyone?

    @Machavity, it hasn't been confirmed and is therefore not a duplicate, per our duplicate story-id criteria

  • @Edlothiad Ah, didn't know the policy. I'll retract it if it's not confirmed

This is likely Moontrap.

The red "ball" is found on a spaceship in orbit, brought back to Earth, where it hatches and builds itself into a killer robot. The rest of the movie is mostly about Bruce Campbell flying to the moon to fight more of them.
