I’m thinking this movie might actually be good.
I’ve stated that I don’t mind a Robocop reboot in the past. Why? Because after the first two films, Robocop kinda got humped into submission by crappy sequel after crappy tv series. Taking modern technology and making a new Robocop series is fine by me. Nothing will ever replace the original in my black heart. That being said, I’m liking Jose Padilha’s version already. A stellar cast has been assembled thus far (Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L Jackson and Hugh Laurie) and now, this first image of ED 209 2013 looks fantastically badass.
I love it. ED 209 was always a great design for what was essentially a giant, dangerous piece of shit machine. I have a feeling that’s not going to be the same story this time around.
Robocop opens next year.
