Do you dig these new set pictures featuring Robocop, Abbie Cornish, and Michael Keaton?
I have no idea why the folks behind ROBOCOP haven't jumped on the chance to reassure lovers of the first movie with an impressively cool promotional shot - they've had plenty of time, we know they have the suit, and it's obvious that public opinion has been far from positive. Even if the fans end up being wrong, and the movie is somehow stupendous, there's a whole bunch of heartache and griping that could be at least somewhat alleviated by a few good pieces of promotional material that introduce us to the characters the way we're meant to see them: cool, collected, impressive, unexpected, or what have you.
The pictures showcase "scenes where Alex Murphy's cyborg suit [are] revealed to the press and public for the first time. As you can see, OmniCorp CEO Raymond Sellars (played by Michael Keaton) has arrived, along with Murphy's partner Lewis (Michael Kenneth Williams), his wife Ellen (Abbie Cornish) as well as his son."
Whatever the vision is, however the suits up top were sold on the idea of remaking Robocop (if there was any reason beyond money, as director Jose Padilha seems to think), it's safe to say it wasn't this:
