A new image has appeared from the now delayed RoboCop remake. Below you ill see an image of the first version of RoboCop called EM-208. Obviously, this would be a predecessor to ED-209. This version of RoboCop is apparently a humanoid drone.

The Plot: 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.

The film stars Joel Kin, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. The film is directed by Jose Padilha.

RoboCop arrives February 7th, 2014.

Iron man rip off

The art design department for this flick all appear to have just phoned this one in.  If they couldn't come up with any original designs, they should have just stuck with variations on the original Robocop film.  This is just sad.

 Actually, with the way the face plate looks from the side, it reminds me more of a Cobra B.A.T. from G.I.Joe than War Machine or Iron Man...I'm looking forward to it.  I hope that it's a Gary Oldman good movie instead of a Gary Oldman paycheck movie, like so much Red Riding Hood.

Hmmm... Predecessor?  I would've thought this would be AFTER ED-209.  You know, moving towards a Robocop prototype.  Course, if memory serves, ED-209 and Robocop were two seperate programs...

Your all right, Its an Iron Man/War Machcine rip with a little B.A.T. from GI Joe thrown in. Still, looks cool, just not very original. Looking forward to it, to bad i got delayed. Probably delayed it so they can add the 3D crap.

 fuck all that, i think it looks cool and can't wait for this movie. i hope it's tagged with a R' rating and hope they don't hold back on the gore just like the original..this better be good..

It definitely needs an R, but I wouldn't count on it.  We're certainly not going to get another scene like the one with ED-209 in the board room.  These days, it's all awful CGI blood that looks just as fake as the red paint used as blood in the 60's and 70's.

 Well the point here is not that he does not looke cool, because he does...he just looks like a very obvious combination of armor designs we have seen in movies that have come out in the last 10yrs. Its nothing special and certainly not anything original, but come on guys...who are we kidding we're ALL still gonna go see this movie regardless.

I'd say it's closer to a Cylon Rip-off than iron man.
