What's going on in these set photos from Robocop?

Nov. 16, 2012by: Niki Stephens

I know you guys aren't exactly in love with the look for the new ROBOCOP. So these set photos that were sent over to us by a longtime reader probably won't change your mind.

We were told that these photos are part of the finale of the film. Here you get to see more of the suit, Robocop pointing a gun, and some police vehicles. I don't exactly love the look myself, however, I do love Michael Keaton so I must give it a chance.

RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alexís life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

ROBOCOP, directed by Jose Padilha and starring Joel Kinneman, Michael Keaton, Samual L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Gary Oldman, and Jay Baruchel is slated for release on August 9, 2013.

meh

I was watching them shoot second unit stunts last week. It's going to be awful. Pretty un-inspired. Boring shots.

I dunno, man, I think his RoboTrolley could do with a few more go-faster red lights on the sides...

If the fact that everyone in this site was in love with DREDD says something, one thing is sure... ROBOCOB is going to be a hit! Anyway I still have no problem with the look...

Awful

I cant believe they are touching this, Because we all know how the remake of total recall went. This is probably going to be another cgi driven movie with no substance. The original Robocop still holds up well today and even though most people will probably watch the movie as an action flick, It is probably one of the most intelligent movies ever made with so many elements and layers to it. I think it gives Shakespeare a run for his money. I am very passionate about this because of the talent

I think it gives Shakespeare a run for his money. I am very passionate about this because of the talent and the shear genius in the movie making process that went into the original and then for some suits to decide that they are going to milk the idea and try to open it up to a wider audience so they can make more money. And its due to these factors that the art of filmmaking is dying because directors are having to sacrifice artistic input because of having to cater to the suits in hollywood and the dumber population of cinema goers.

I Bet....

I bet this movie is gonna come as a surprise to everyone. Some of the most despised films from their inception have become very good ones! I'm hoping this is no exception to that....I hope. I've always been on board as the original is one of my fave sci-fi flicks of all time. Just 'cause they're remaking it, doesn't make the original cease to exist, or tarnish it if ti's terrible for that matter. Only promote awareness and longevity to the original work. Let's go Robo!!

I am officially going to see this movie...

not because of the pics, but because people are so fucking stupid. If you dont like the idea of a remake then don't go see it. Holy fuck, all this shit about how great the original was. It fucking wasn't, when we were 12 and 13 it was fucking awesome. Go watch it now, it hasn't aged very well. The same thing with Total Recall, the original was about an oxygen processing plant on fucking mars, how fucking absurd was that? If you love the originals that much then get the dvd/bluray and shut the

If you love the originals that much then get the dvd/bluray and shut the fuck up. It will get made, released and either make money at the box office or it won't. Bitching now wont change the production. Bitch about Singer penning the next X-Men script, or why the fuck one book is 3 fucking movies, 3 almost 3hr movies? Bitch about why we cant get 3 Stand movies, one for each act. For fuck's sake, bitching about a cyborg police officer is retarded.

What's going on is another pointless movie remake is being shot. Sorry but this looks awful to me & I hate the new suit, too much like IronMan.

Has a good cast so you know... maybe it won't be so bad. No denying the suit is very disappointing but the other one being carted around doesn't look too bad.

The original suit doesn't work. MY complaint with this suit is that it so far looks and feels like the enhancement suit from GI Joe rather than a cyborg. And some silver and chrome, Make him stand out. He's not a ninja, he's not the Dark Knight, he's Robocop. I get they want to re-invent the suit and make him less sluggish etc, but this idea that the all black and slight red highlights is the way to go just makes him feel less robo and more dude in armour suit..
I'll still give the movie a

I'll still give the movie a chance but I hope this works better than it looks.

Interesting how negative you all are. I reserve my judgement.

The leaked snapshots from the set of "Batman: Dark Knight Rises" looked ridicules. The movie did not. Just saying.

Dark Robo Knight Cop?

That's my problem with this new suit. They're trying to cash in on the Dark Knight theme. The original suit worked, it's still relevant and what makes it work is that it emotes no particular emotion, after all, he's a robot. This dark suit makes him look like the Dark Knight's just met a Cylon and wants to be bad ass rather than just is.
What will save this film though is the great cast if nothing else.

I think smooveluv may really have been on to something with his earlier comment about Robocop's "high tech transportation device"...
