Highly detailed look at Joel Kinneman's Robocop in the remake from director Jose Padilha

Oct. 29, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Ah, the ever-controversial ROBOCOP remake!† If you're still on the fence about the new look of the titular character from Jose Padilha's remake of the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic, then perhaps these new set pics may sway you...or push you further away.† These are the most highly detailed pics we've seen of the new "stealth" armor look of ol' Murphy and give a very intricate look at the design of his new duds.

I'm not blown away by the look, but I think it does look pretty cool.† The profile view is especially interesting, which you can get a good look at in the below pics, which basically cover 180 degrees around the cyborg cop, giving you the best look yet of what this character will look like onscreen.

Looking for me?:

Synopsis:

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 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 (Kinnaman) 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 Alex's 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, starring Joel Kinneman, Michael Keaton, Samual L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, and Jackie Earle Haley is set to bring justice to theaters on February 7, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Well, anyone swayed in the armor's favor after seeing these?

Meh

I'm sick of these over-detailed superhero armors- (especially Batman- Bring back the gray) As for this (and Iron Man for that matter) -if it was really futuristic, it would actually be streamlined. Not impossible to walk in and take 5 hrs to put on. Dumbass

You guys are right, my post sounded like I didn't know Robocop was a cyborg. I did, though, and I still stand by my post, the gist of which is the DESIGNS are too clunky for futuristic robotics.

@Topweasel

Except that it looks exactly like a suit someone would wear, and it does not sell the concept that he is supposed to be a cyborg. Even when he takes off the helmet he still looks like a guy in a suit.

I don't think he has to "put on" his suit. You know... considering he's a robot and all.

Well I can't speak for Iron Man, but this isn't a uniform. He doesn't put it on or take it off. It just is. So yeah I would expect future military mechanical bionic replacements to look like this to a degree.

I really want this to be good!!

I will hold all judgements until I see a trailer and I get to see how he moves and what it sounds like. I do agree that this looks more like a suit he would wear more than it looks like he's a cyborg...

but I still have some hope!!

I'm still not digging the armor much, but it's only a photo. I still just see a man in a suit which is annoying. I'm really looking forward to a trailer showing him moving in action. This has potential to kick some ass...

I mean as financial successes, both those movies flopped, who wants to bet this is the 3rd one to belly up.

Dread was good, fanboys loved it but it did pretty rough box-office numbers. Def not the kickstart for a new franchise the studios were hoping for.

Don't those two examples kind of offset, since one represents a bad remake of a good movie (Total Recall) and the other a good remake of a bad movie (Dredd)? Actually, Dredd should not even be mentioned. Total Recall alone should be a warning, since it shows what happens when a Paul Verhoven movie gets the stylized, modern remodel treatment.

Just one thing...

If this is a stealth suit, why does he have a glowing red line across his face and red lights on the back of his head?

I imagine the post production team have their work cut out, removing any sight of the film crew from that highly reflective visor.

This would be cool for another film besides robocop. Why would they make a glass helmet instead of a solid metal one? As stated below, a stealth suite with a red line across his eyes and in the back of his head? I'm really hoping this is not the final suite we will see the entire film because they're just making fun of themselves now.

Woah, woah, WOAH!

Is that a crotch seat-belt??! That better be cleared up in post (like the suit which i suspect because we still need to see the badge and OCP logo more clearly) beacuse it looks so wrong.

@extratidbit, I'm still on the fence because I feel like my fellow commenters have said, we should expect a lot of video game-like action scenes ala Crysis which screams PG13.

Guy in the suit again...

And these pics keep coming and still all there is to see is that Robocop, The remake, will feature a guy in a very coll looking suit that makes him look nothing like a cyborg Robot but everything like a guy wearing a Armour.

Looks like it was designed by a 12-year-old who wants his idea to be taken really, really, REALLY seriously. Oh, it also looks like a man in a suit rather than a human face glued onto a mechanical body. Total fucking RoboFail.

I Wish!!

Not quite what I was hoping for but still looks pretty cool. I wish there was more mechanics to the suit such as what we see in the Transformers movies. Little bits and pieces moving around, details like that. We can only truly judge when it's released.

Nope, no change for me. It still looks like Commander Shepard. Way way too much black. Just a guy in a suit rather than a man fused with machine.
