CommingSoon - has your first look at Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing") in the new RoboCop suit! Filming started today in Toronto and you can see the updated design below.
I feel the need to be punched in the Jaw right now.
Im the same, it doesnt look to.....robotic does it? I was hoping for a more bulky looking Robo like the original, the couldnt even get the paint job right Ill hold on till I hate on it too much, I at-least want to see a trailer
CGI will fix that probably lol
Looks like Batman...
We posted art design in Aug, people flamed us, said it was just bad fan art etc. Some defended us. It was dead on, the only thing was that our art was more of a gun metal blue hue.
Don't care. Robocop was a great film. Why remake it? Sorry you can't come up with visual effects on the same level as the 1970's Star Wars. Don't whine to us about it.
How can you disagree? Proof is on here we posted the look of the suit on Aug 02? http://filmwatch.com/news/1...
I guess I'm the only one who digs it. Obviously they're going for a much more modern take, since technology has come so far since the first film. I'm sure he'll be much faster, etc, than in the first film.
Not the best, but not the worst it could be. Having said that, ff the rest of the production is up (or rather 'down') to this standard it could signal bad news. Did they have to rip off Batman's and Iron Man's suits and mush them together??
Why does he look like a soldier from Mass effect?
I think thats the problem with this is that the costume looks too generic. Rather than looking like a cyborg, it just looks like a man in a suit. Maybe they will put on a few after effects to make it look that way...but I'm not holding my breath!
Generic....exactly. The original design was iconic, this thing just looks kind of thrown together and slightly lame. It just looks like some dude in body armour, whereas the original looked like a damn robot.
Dear Hollywood, Robocop was one of my favourite movie series when i was a kid. Now, please don't fuck it up. Sincerely Yours. Nostalgic Fan.
Dear Nostalgic Fan, LMFAO, good one. Excuse us, there is $$$$ to be made. Sincerely Yours, Hollywood.
The Accelerator Suits from G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra look more like a new Robocop I'd want to see than this one.
WTF? It looks like the Batsuit with a visor.
Batman wearing Iron Man's helmet... how... original.
Rubber suit really?!
Looks like crap >.<
it doesn't look so bad and when they add the special sound effects and stuff I think they can achieve that scary feel the first movie had. But I heard this reboot will be very campy and it's gonna be PG-13 so goodbye to the violence, gore and all that stuff that made it special. new robo: http://metalarcade.net/wp-c... the old one: http://oilersnation.com/upl... old one with no helmet: http://content.epixhd.com/w... Scene they need to top: http://youtu.be/Hzlt7IbTp6M
Looks like Batman mixed with Judge Dredd.
Hollywood strikes again, what cant come up with anything new?
EPIC FAIL. Another Hollywood remake butchering a classic with over the top costumes and lack of following the same formula that made the first one so great.
It's such a fallacy when people say they are butchering a classic. They're not butchering a classic. The classic still exists and is available for all to see. They're making a new movie with a different look and style. They're not going to make a carbon copy of the same movie.
No they are just riding off the coatheirs of the name from a well established franchise to give that new movie with a different look and style. They may as well just have created a new name for the movie if it's to be different and have style. Robodetective I am sure is an available name. Roborookie-cop Roboswat Roboenforcer Etc..... But no, they name it robocop.....
It is the same thing with what I call "cover movies". You know them, and have seen them around. The worst one is "Paranormal Entity" Even the cover of the DVD looks like "Paranormal Activity" Riding on a movies fame, and cult following is just pure crap!
Didn't even occur to me that they would significantly change the old suit's design.
I didn't think it had aged that badly.
Someone on Reddit posted this pic today where they photoshopped the suit to look more like the old one. If they did it like this it would look A LOT better.
I was actually just about to load up photoshop and do the exact same thing. Personally I'd bulk up the chrome pieces a little, and add more to the shoulders, but otherwise that's exactly how I'd want it to look with that suit design.
