Here's a sneak peek at the second trailer for Jose Padilha's Robocop

Nov. 5, 2013by:

What did we learn from the first ROBOCOP trailer? Apparently we learned that we were split down the middle. I'm remaining optimistic because of director Jos Padilha, Michael Keaton, and Gary Oldman. I was happy to see that some people were also just as open as I was when it came to checking it out. Sure, we love the 1987 version. Plus they filmed some of it near where me so I feel a closeness with it. That said, I get it. I'm not telling you how to feel about the remake but I'll reserve true judgement until I see the thing.

Entertainment Tonight did another one of their "trailer sneak peeks" for the second ROBOCOP trailer which is set to release on Thursday. It's not enough footage to say "Hey that looks better" but it does show BOARDWALK EMPIRE's Michael K. Williams who is a badass.

His line in this did kind of make me laugh though.

Here's the peek:

Synopsis:

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years -- and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) -- a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit -- is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

ROBOCOP hits theaters on February 7, 2014.

News flash for fanboys

The original is outdated and full of cheap effects with cornball humor that no one finds funny anymore. If they are going to remake a movie, it HAS to be updated with NEW effects, NEW jokes, NEW actors, NEW style. GET OVER IT YOU FAT FREAKS OF NATURE STUCK IN YOUR YOUTH.

The only real reason I would've given a new RoboCop movie a chance, is if it was being taken on by a filmmaker with a vision, and not just remaking a landmark in action from the 80s. Giving him a black suit, and only marginally making him a cyborg doesn't mean it's a different take. When Aranofsky was originally attached, I absolutely went nuts in excitement, because he is a visionary.

JOKE

When he was sitting down with the other two cops I was expecting to see him eating doughnuts and drinking coffee. Definitely agree with film buff on the head piece. It just looks like they have put an actor in the suit. With the best and only Robocop the makeup made him look like he was bonded to his suit and the fact that he only took the visor off at the end was a very important aspect to the movie and intelligent one at that. In this it looks like he is removing his visor every 5 minutes

In this it looks like he is removing his visor every 5 minutes which kinda negates the idea of robocop because its giving him a very Human quality. So you might aswell have called it man inside a suit cop. I wonder if he will use the line that Jaden Smith used in After Earth. 'My suits black, I think it might be bad but I kinda like it' because that seems to be the quality of work coming out of Hollywood these days. DUMBED DOWN SHIT

The head piece literally looks like one of the dumbest costumes pieces I've every seen. Wow...He just looks like a Man in Armor. This may ruin the main actors career, sad.

That good/bad cop dialogue would be embarrassing in a Power Rangers movie.

Hmm

This looks pretty good. I like the guy from The Killing, so this might be pretty good.

Alas, like many excellent directors who have established themselves directing films outside of Hollywood, he seems to have been screwed over by the studio system on this film and by all accounts had a miserable time of it.

Could go either way, ill stay positive but its true what Jedd said, look at Gavin Hood, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and Oliver Hirschbiegel. A bunch of solid forgein work then followed with a crap and mutilated Hollywood debut.

LMAO

Is this a comedy spoof? Good cop bad cop, Robocop. OMFG. Lets just hope after this one Hollywood will decide to stop wasting money on trying to ruin something that didn't need remaking.

I'm going to give this movie a chance. Hopefully it'd still make Murphy feels like he's a Ghost in the Machine.

It's hard to judge so far, but from what I've seen I like it. I do wish they would have stuck with the silver suit though.

Still just looks like a guy in a matte black iron man suit instead of a robot cop.

I'll be honest, I will give the movie a fair chance. I just wish they'd stick with the silver suit. I am really hoping he's black at the beginning and goes 80's Robocop silver closer to the end...probably be the other way around though. I dislike the GI Joe battle suit black armour Robocop is sporting here.

By all accounts so far, you're right, it's the other way around. Silver suit first, then the black one.
