A first look at the new Robocop – I wouldn't buy that for a dollar!

So, the time has come, my friends. The mayans predicted it after all! The end is nigh…at least for our childhoods, as they have just released a few images of the new Robocop, as per Comingsoon. Be prepared folks, its a doozy…

I might as well say it…that doesn’t really look anything like our favourite cyborg cop, now does it? It looks a little bit more like Batman and Judge Dredd had a baby and I can honestly say I am disappointed…but I’m not wholly surprised. After an initial casting that sounded great, more and more news stories were released that left most of us fans less than hopeful and I think this might just be the nail and the coffin and proof that this might just be a Robocop film in name and general premise.

What do you guys think, am I being to negative? As usual with reboots of beloved franchises, I will pay attention to the next few stories and hope for a miracle. It looks like we are going to need one.

  • It’s The Dark Knight Rises Rises!

    I kinda like it, but then again, I wear Batman underwear. Still, seeing as how there are multiple suits in the film, I’d love to know if this is the final one, or one of the prototypes.

    that looks super kak. (for Robocop) it does look like a heavy armour batman suit.
    Not robocop at all. vok. Can you fly Jimmy?

    I really hope that is a prototype. But if not… This is going to go the way of the Total Recall remake. I really believe this reboot is uncalled for. The original Robocop aged pretty well for a movie that came out in the 80’s.

      Agreed.

  • I’ll wait for some footage. Peter Weller spent months with a mime coach to get the movement for the original suit right. That suit was also quite controversial, at least among the film’s makers – some saw it as too cheap looking. At the end it was the mix of Weller and the way the lighting was done that made it work. As Verhoeven put it, they had one chance and if that chance failed, the audience would always see a guy in a suit.

    That said, what I don’t like here is how it feels like an exo-suit and not a machine.

    Body Armour cop? It doesn’t look very robotic now does it. From what I have heard about this I don’t think I’ll waste the 90 minutes to see this.
