I have always felt that a trailer, much like a first impression, can make or break a film. If anything the desire to at least see it. The first couple of trailers were “meh” to me. This trailer for the up coming RoboCop nails it. The story isn’t all about action. The story of RoboCop is about a man who awakens to find himself forever changed. Check out the new (4th) international trailer below.
 

The Plot: In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

RoboCop features Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. Jackson. 

RoboCop arrives February 7th, 2014.

I'm not trying to bash this movie, because I will see it...but it really does look like the black suit was the prototype and the silver the finished product.  It looks so much better in silver!

I'm totally diggin' the vibe and feel of this movie. Outside of SL Jackson's hair I think it looks awesome.

Great cast and I love Abbie Cornish.

Also I like that they're not trying to duplicate Verhoeven's satirical humor or at least to no great extent

Like most everyone else, I'm not diggin the black as much as the silver, but I understand why they did it.  They did it to try and separate it more from the original.  In addition to wanting to make it their own interpretation of the actual Robocop itself, they wanted it to look different just to make sure everyone knows that it's theirs.  Again, they want to separate themselves a bit from the original.  That's my take anyway.

That being said, I don't like how they got rid of the metallic, resonating sound of his voice that the orginial Robocop had.  Now, I understand this somewhat contradicts what I previously said, but I think it's something they should've left alone because he is a friggin' half robot.  It makes sense that his voice would be slightly altered.

I am totally looking forward to this though.  Been waiting since its original 2009 release date.

I'm not looking forward to this and I'm not saying that to be a troll!  Jackson keeps playing the same roles too often; the mentor or the head of some company and Kinnaman while not bad isn't intimidating enough doesn't give the same kind of presence that Peter Weller gave in the original.  I don't think this movie will do well both commercially and as a film.  It doesn't seem to do much different from the original so to me they didn't do enough with the overall concept.  If that's the case then why did they bother to do so in the first place?  I think they just wanted to "update" the original with new CGI FX just like they did with Total Recall and Clash of the Titans.  There's no need!  When will Hollywood learn?

Compare compare compare... critic cliche.

Again, the original was a good flick, but it wasn't some Mona Lisa of sci fi. It was B for an 80's flick. This looks more sleak, and I have total faith Kinnaman can nail this part... He's exceptional in The Killing (best part of the show actually), and i'm excited to see him in an action role. Keaton is always a good sign. All this hate for Samuel L... like he's even a large part of the movie? That's like saying I hate Star Wars cuz I couldn't stand the actor who portrayed Grand Moff Tarkin. Please. So close you're F'ing eyes and ears for 20 seconds.

No thanks! The original WAS "ORIGINAL". This is taking cues from Iron Man, the original RoboCop, and The Dark Knight, and trying to mesh them together to make a "darker, more realistic" RoboCop. Puh-LEEEEZE! Give me a frakkin' break!

The reason the original RoboCop, like the original Total Recall, worked SO well when they came out was because they DIDN'T take themselves so seriously! They had over the top gore, wild action sequences, and a more "comic book" approach to the feel of the movie. So many of these remakes, re-imaginings, whatever, are going for the "modern, realistic" tact that in MY opinion has gotten OLD!

That is why I still say, to this day, the BEST Live Action Comic Book Film is the first Iron Man, NOT any of the Nolan Batman movies. THEY tried too hard to be "realistic", and again, IMO, FAILED miserably at being a good MOVIE! Iron Man didn't do that, and was an absolute BLAST! BB was good, but not great, but TDK and TDKR both pooped big piles of poo-doo all over the place.

So, like that disaster of a remake called Total Recall with crappy actor Ferrell at the helm, I predict THIS pile of dung will splat to failure as well! Screw this RoboCop "remake"......I won't bother wasting MY money on it!

Calamity J, I'm not saying SLJ will ruin this new Robocop, just making an observation as to his acting choices.  As an actor, he's a brilliant man.  I'm also not saying the original Robocop was an absolute masterpiece but it was still a very solid sci-fi actioner which delivered what it was supposed to be.  Making it a more "realistic" version will not improve it because IMO this sort of movie isn't meant to be taken that seriously.  The title itself should give anybody a clue!

VermithraxP, Batman doesn't have to be in the DC Universe in order to be a great or even a good movie.  Nolan went back to the roots of the early Batman comics and I think he succeeded brilliantly!!  The comparison you've made of Robocop to the Nolan Batman films isn't a good one because if you read some of the early Batman comics they were dark and serious, so this idea that you shouldn't make a Batman film "too serious" or "realistic" isn't justified when the early comics did so!  BTW, the sci-fi aspect of Batman only came about in the Silver Age of Comics in the early 60's!  BB is not only one of the greatest comic movies of all-time but the greatest live-action Batman origin story EVER!!!  I defy anyone to come up with a better origin tale for Batman!!  TDK is easily the greatest comic-book sequel EVER!!!  Just accept it and trust me you'll feel SO MUCH BETTER AND SMARTER!!!  LOL!!!

As for Colin Farrell, he's made some bad movie choices which turned out to be bad movies let alone bad box office but that soesn't make him a bad actor.  He's had great performances in Tigerland, Minority Report, Phonebooth, Daredevil, and The New World.  Let's not get his movie failures mixed up with his talent as an actor, and he does have great talent.

The New Hollywood , rather play it safe by making more re-makes . They know the Public knows the film . In 10 years they will remake Iron man.

masbro76 11/21/2013 3:45:52 AM

Movie looks great! They really should have kept the silver suit, this black suit just looks like some darkside Iron Man. I love the idea of Robo not being the only robot in this. I like Keaton, he's always a plus. I know somepeople will bitch about remakes, but im cool with it.
