  • Robocop don’t walk like that
    Why isn’t this movie rated R ?

  • Wow, that looks like an actually different take on it! I’m surprised.

    Also, Samuel L. Jackson feels like someone that should have been in the first one…

  • That doesn’t look all that great. Nothing about it screams “Must-see.” It looks like the recent Dredd movie. which was a huge flop.

    • I was shocked but Dredd was actually pretty good. You just have to not go by what the critics say and see if for yourself. I know thinking for yourself is a foreign concept on this site but you know…

      • The critics gave Dredd a 78% Certified Fresh on RT, so…it sounds like the critics would still be right in your mind.

  • This is looks like the Total Recall remake. Really bland looking and loud.

    • Yup. What made that and the original Robocop so good was the satire. Maybe it’s the marketing, but this feels to straight and bland.

    • You’re right on the money.

      I enjoyed both the The Total Recall remake and Dredd trailers, yet both failed to deliver the goods at the box office.

      I have a feeling RoboCop ’14 might make it three in a row.

  • the most subversive studio movie of the 80′s, now sanitized by the Save The Cat machine for mass consumption by a nation of sheep. Sure hope he has that talk with his son!

    • It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud, but you did it… Because it looks like the truth…

    • I think Alex Cox’s WALKER probably has the honor of most subversive 80′s flick produced by a Hollywood studio, but ROBOCOP is damn close. Actually, Cox was the first choice to direct ROBOCOP, as well, and he went to UCLA with its co-writer, Michael Miner.
