As you are probably already sadly aware, there’s a “Robocop” remake coming down the pipes.
The first image of the new Robocop came out a few months back and the general consensus among us anonymous, faceless internet types was that it looked super-lame. Super mega mega lame.
Here it is again:
Basically, it looks just like a guy in a suit. Which I guess is technically exactly what it is, but …
OH! Also, I think it sorta looks like this:
Yeah, "GI Joe." Definitely a horrible sign. Anyway so today another picture from the set hit the webs and it is equal parts unappetizing and meh. Here's the new one:
That happy-looking fellow is a Robocop prototype called the EM-208 Humanoid Drone.
In addition to “GI Joe,” this movie seems to have also taken a few cues from “Iron Man,” as well.
What I guess I’m trying to say is, with all those other movies, do we need this? The answer is of course a resounding no, but Hollywood’s got sacks with dollar signs on them that need fillin’ so here we are.
Robocop shoots his way through Old Detroit in theaters very nearly one year from now, February 7th, 2014.
