It’s been all quiet on the rebooted Robocop front for some time now. Last we heard from it, the script was bad, Robocop was dressed in Tony Stark’s hand-me-downs, director Jose Padilha hated making it and then somebody gave Robocop a hand.
And now, showing up out of nowhere, we have a new series of set pics showing off Joel Kinnaman in action in the new suit, as well as a set video showing the cyborg cop going for a little ride on his robo-bike.
Now, a year ago I would never have thought I’d be saying this, and I’d probably still deny it if you bring it up in public, but the new Robocop suit is kind of growing on me. Maybe it’s just that my fanboy ire has now subsided since its original unveiling, or it could just be due to the fact that with the lighting in these pics (courtesy of CBM and Daily Mail) it actually looks like bulky, metallic body armour and not just a rubber suit they’ve slapped on some guy.
Whatever the reason, I am definitely looking forward to this movie just a sliver of a tad bit more than I used to be.
Dead or alive, Robocop will be entering cinemas on February 7, 2014.
