Well, MGM might want to bone up on their RoboCop security. Following a fair share of leaks — none of which give fantastic impressions in the first place — José Padilha‘s forthcoming remake, an affair which only just began to start moving, had its hand tipped in a big way.
Thanks to ComingSoon, we have two shots of Joel Kinnaman in the big suit; though very raw and lacking any sort of necessary context — if such a thing is even possible — a passerby gets the idea of this “upgraded” armor right then and there. As it were? The thing’s fine, I guess. We can definitely understand how the screenplay described the character’s appearance — “cop on steroids painted metallic blue” — yet I am still curious (as curious as one can reasonably be) how he’ll transform from “social mode” to “combat mode.”
But, having just seen The Master in 70mm less than 24 hours ago, RoboCop is not something I’ll be putting a lot of thought into for the moment. Or the rest of time.
They can be seen below:
Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste also fill out RoboCop, which will open on August 9th, 2013.
The suit: Yay? Nay? Who really cares?
