RoboCop, the remake of the 1980s film of the same name is in theatres now, and is the most recent victim of Hollywood’s bloodlust for rehashing every movie that did even mediocrely well in the 80’s. But how is it? Is it worthy of the RoboCop name, or should it have died on the table?
Everyone was shitting over the upcoming Robocop remake in 2013 about how the leaked pictures were of him in an all black suit. I found this picture of him all chromed out and I thought it looks pretty badass. It’s very possible this could be the final look of Robocop and the black suit is just a pre-CGI stand-in.
All three (yes, there were three) Robocop movies in one Blu Ray set for only $16. SO MUCH ROBOCOP.
With the Robocop remake underway, the world finally gets its first look at the new Robocop suit. And it’s… not quite what anyone was hoping. Sure, it’s supposed to look more like a modern cybersuit/exoskeleton thing as opposed to a Tin Man suit in the original, but it’s kind of boring. The original might not have been the most optimal suit for a robot cop of the future, but it was awesome looking and instantly iconic.
Actor Hugh Laurie has apparently changed his mind about being in the Robocop remake, so the production has instead turned to Michael Keaton. House is out, Batman is in.
