I'm guessing the hand is more of a callback to the first movie, but this time, they're making it more central to the story. It wouldn't surprise me if it's a major plot point in this one.

I'm not super enthusiastic about the suit and will reserve judgement until we see him moving. Making the chest a little bigger would help.

I am EXTREMELY disappointed. I guess I just assumed it would look more like the original like at least somewhat like the original. Looks like a great costume for generic movie 17. O well at least Dredd is amazing to make up for it.

Honestly, it looks like a suit ANYONE can put on. I am sure the fans are upset right now and hopefully it will force change soon!

Man.... I enjoy the original suit a lot more. I mean come on... that just can't be beat. They really knocked it out of the park back in the day.

What did you expect from the filmmakers? THEY'RE ONLY HUMAN.

I'm sorry, I'll leave now...

Looks like if Tony Stark let Batman borrow a ironman suit.

Which initially sounds kick ass in my head.


Wouldn't it still look like Iron Man no matter who was in the suit?

Everyone. This movie will suck. The first is classic, you can't remake classic.

Looks like the Nolan batsuit had a baby with Shaq's "Steel" costume.

LOL, and if Batman made enhancements to it obviously, jack ass. :)

I'm I the only one who liked part 2 better than part 1? Part 1 had the iconic scenes and dialogue, but part 2 had an over the top coke addict robo bad guy, which was nuts.

Haven't watched them in ages really, will have to sometime soon.

Guess it could be worse, if Michael Bay were directing he'd have Robo transform into his own mode of transpiration.

I'm usually upset with remakes as well, but I've got some hope in this one. You don't have to worry about a budget-driven director CG-ing everything in, since it's going to be directed by Padilha, whose previous films were between damned great to insane. Plus, apparently he is not enjoying a big studio breathing down his neck. That could be good news, as he could hopefully recreate his vision and let the studio revel in the finished product. Hopefully.

Yeah, the suit isn't the greatest, but... Have we seen a finished product yet? No? Okay.

I can't say that I'm interested in seeing this redone at all. The original was a great film, and is still a great film. They should instead remake shitty movies and make them good.

As long as this film has a dark tone it should be okay, I doubt it though.

Honestly that mini-series type thing they did years ago will probably be better. At least it felt like part of the series.

I think the back of the suit looks great. I noticed the OmniCorp and Detroit Police logos on his chest piece too.

It looks like they're keeping the hand though.

I think it looks good as well.

I also like the red visor.

I Have nothing against CGI. I'm just overly cynical at this remake because the first Robocop is one of those movies you don't expect to hold up, but it does (and it does extremely well) and almost feels like a lightning in a bottle case when you look at all the failed sequels and TV spin offs. Add to that all the news of HEAVY involvement by the studios in this film and it's hard to be excited. I'll wait until reviews or word of mouth before I see it, but as of now there's just a feeling a train wreck is slowly piling up.

Someone mentioned it's pg-13 so no more hysterical scenes like "don't touch me MAN!"

I just don't get why they need to have the suit black? Can't they have the silver/blue from Robocop 2?

Well you know there are problems when a movie gets pushed back to another year..

http://www.comingsoo...ws.php?id=95932

I really hope that fan outcry is in fact the reason for the delay. So far no one likes the suit , comparing it to batman's armor.

Proves that Hollywood is filled with a bunch of idiots. Why would anyone ever remake Robocop, one of the best sci-fi/action films to ever be released. I'd rather see another sequel, as long as they keep Frank Miller away.

Shit, where's a remake of Robot Jox? Or give us a big-budget, live-action 8 Man movie.
