I have to agree with the previous poster about how well the original Robocop works.

It doesn't need to be remade especially given the follow up of Robocop 2 and OCP trying to take over the city. The political implications are great.

Also Robocop PG-13?! We saw how well that worked for that steaming pos that is Robocop 3.

It was poking fun at people who brainlessly watch television. The show was about a dirty old man who only ever said the same catch phrase over and over. Almost everyone in the movie is watching it and everytime he spouts "I'd buy that for a dollar!", everyone lost their shit.

Ironically, the new RoboCop looks like the T.J. Lazer character from the original movie.

I think the problem is that he looks too high tech. The original suit kinda fit the time it was created in, it looked just clunky enough.This one looks too advanced to me.

So, since Bing is grossly (and hilariously) placed inside movies constantly, what are the chances of new RoboCop searching through criminal records with Bing™, or Prime Directive 4: brought to you by Bing™?

Play up the "push button warfare" narrative and then show it abused and fail horrifically when military tech is used domestically vis-à-vis domestic drone use.

Interesting idea.

Well, nothing beats the original, but I think the new technology will give it a boost. I would go watch.

They had better make Robocop look cooler in the remake or else it will become a letdown. I mean c'mon, it's been how many years already right? That's already a large gap in tech advances. hehehe..

Yes. Only one is on netflix and I saw it. I think it was the second one. I.watched it solely because the guy is making the new Robocop, and it was pretty good. But.....that first Robocop, once you get past the 80s themes, is still a great movie. I mean, Keatons' Batman and RoboCop were they only really cool Superhero movies for a pretty big stretch.

I hope he still has that 5 round burst 50 cal handgun.

RoboCop 3 can only be explained if one of the writers had heavy drug use.


Oh crap....I just saw that awesome.robo.link a.few pages back. I think the Padilla lost something is translation. I this we are.looking at the Robocop version of the Doom movie.

At least Battleship movie knew it was ridiculous and had fun with it. This looks like its going to like The Eleventh Hour

I'm still hoping it's just awful advertising and turns out to be good like Dredd, but goddamn that is one forgettable trailer. It feels like Total Recall remake with big shiny visuals to mask over everything.

I think it looks great and seems like it has a good tone.

 

If you look carefully, the OG Robosuit is in the trailer...twice!

Grantland had this to say about the trailer:

Silver: To this day Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 RoboCop is the archetype for satire and cinematic subversion. Written by Americans but directed by a Dutchman who depicted this country as he saw it through his foreign eyes, the film’s magnified and distorted view of our nation’s future was the ideal prism through which to view, and issue a warning for, the '80s culture of excess. It’s a film that unquestionably stands the test of time, but given Hollywood’s passion for vapidly remaking and/or recycling stories, I always knew that I’d see another RoboCop. And when I did, I assumed the film would be a shell of the original.Call me optimistic, but based on this trailer I think we’re going get the complete opposite of that — and possibly something more aligned with the DNA of Verhoeven’s original.

First off, the helming duties have fallen to another great foreign visualist, Jose Padilha, who, with films like Elite Squad, Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, and even the documentary Bus 174, proved that he knows how to interweave substantive material with tension and action. Then there is the enormously talented cast, with performers — Oldman, Keaton, Jackson, Baruchel, and Haley — who all have the ability to seamlessly dance between earnestness and irony (just as Ronny Cox, Kurtwood Smith, Ray Wise, and Miguel Ferrer did in the original). And given the sociopolitical climate we're living in, I'd say that the filmmakers couldn't have picked a better time to resurrect this walking metaphor.

If I had to find something to nitpick on I’d say that the digital version of Murphy landing at 1:50 looks a little too iRobot for my taste. And I’m a little weary of the scenes where it appears Murphy fights a bunch of RoboCop-like sentinels. We get a glimpse of ED-209 in this trailer; why can’t they just stick with the mano a mano? The swarm-of-robots narrative device is so overused.But strip away the über-action moments from this trailer, and it seems this RoboCop is going to have some depth to go with its carnage — man’s relationship with technology, corporate greed, messaging vs. consumption, and (wait for it) free will. And I’d buy that for a dollar.

Yoshida: In the interest of keeping this week's trailer report under 8 billion words, this looks cool.

As much as I wanted to hate it, I think they did a few cool things with it. We shall see.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.
