Get Your First Look at the New RoboCop Suit Right NOW!





We've all been waiting patiently to get a load of Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing") in the new RoboCop suit! Filming started today in Toronto, and you can see the updated design right here. Tell us what you think.

Coming Soon got the exclusive via some quick thinking guy with a camera, and we've cropped the pictures a bit to give you the best look at the suit possible. While it is cool, it's yet to scream RoboCop to us. Guess we'll have to wait and see what it looks like in action with the CG enhancements to really tell.

Jose Padilha's film stars Joel Kinnaman as the title hero plus Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Michael Keaton, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Abbie Cornish, and Jackie Earle Haley.

Currently RoboCop has a tentative release date of August 9th, 2013.

Synopsis
In RoboCop the year is 2029, and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre 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 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 its 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.

That's horrible. Bloody horrible. RoboCop shouldn't need CGI enhancement. There are plenty of talented f/x people who could step up and make a real world suit. The last few decades has seen an evolution of light weight materials, there's no reason for this lame ass generic 'space guard' suit.

I know the original RoboCop was likely inspired by Dredd but it was helmed by a unique director and the results were awesome. This suit is more of a Dredd rip-off and not in a good way.

I'm not even a huge fan of the old robocop and I'm offended by this bastardization

I could make a better Robocop suit out of fucking legos.

It's Emo-Robocop. Yay.


Submitted by LifeMi on Sat, 09/15/2012 - 7:04pm.

That would be a cool suit for some other movie. But not Robocop. I thought thed at least leave His look alone.


Submitted by JB Demented on Sat, 09/15/2012 - 5:46pm.

Ever play the video game Haze? Because that suit looks suspiciously familiar.

I totally forgot about that game; I played the demo.

You know what I like most about the new suit? I like how he has one human hand and one robotic hand. Kinda like how Michael Jackson only wore one sequin glove. Very modern.

I'm holding off judgement; but I think it's very obvious that Nolan's influence from the Batman films has seeped into virtually everything now. Everything has to be realistic, everything has to be gritty, everything has to have some kinda slickness as well. I don't mind realism in a film; as long as there's something to ground it fine. But I was hoping for something with a lot more flourish, the original design was very 1980s and I didn't expect (or want) a walking tank.

I just expected something...well streamline, smooth, a bit of flourish...hell Apple release the iRoboCop. This design; it just looks like the kind of soldier battle-armor the Army has been dabbling with for the past decade.

Still, the director did the phenomenal 'Elite Squad' films; so I'm sticking with positive vibes.

You're more optimistic than he is. Reports are that he's miserable making the movie thanks to the studio making all his decisions.

Looks good to me. I look forward to seeing the finished product on-screen once the CGI and whatever is added to make it nice and shiny for the fans. The eighties are over people. This is modern times. Build a bride and get over it.


Submitted by Terminal on Sat, 09/15/2012 - 4:09pm.

The eighties were one of the best decades for movies. Why would I get over that fact? And is the term modern synonymous with generic? Because that's what this suit is. There's absolutely nothing about it that screams iconic. I'm just waiting for the inevitable PG-13 rating at this point. No squibs, no go.

dude you hit the nail right on the head...The 80s were a great time for movies in fact id go to say they were the last of the golden age of hollywood filmmaking. i also agree that modern is synonymous with generic i mean because there is no artist and creative ability in hollywood anymore if there was we wouldnt have to keep enduring mindless cheap remakes that can hold a candle to the originals..especially remakes of films that dont need to be remade in the first place...its really sad that most of the good films of the last decade or so generally ended up direct to video.

Dude, we don't even know if that's the final product yet. They may add artificial glimmer like in Iron Man or whatever. Wait until the trailer. Come on, if and when they decide to remake Back to the Future, they won't use a DeLorean. Unless they want to be ironic and self aware.

Car companies are going to be jumping for product placements, and whatever car wins the bidding will become the new DeLorean. They may include the DeLorean just to to mock it and introduce the new model.

The point is, the eighties are over. Just deal with it.

And no the eighties were not the best decade for movies. The seventies were. Granted, the seventies had just as much junk as the eighties, but come on, the seventies were a time of great revival for film. The eighties? just a lot of fluff and swill.


Submitted by Terminal on Sat, 09/15/2012 - 5:04pm.

Apparently you missed the word one that preceded decades. I said the eighties were one of the best decades for film. Of course that's completely subjective. And it is possible to add a modern flavor without being bland.

As for the eighties being full of fluff and swill, I guess you slept through most of the 90's and 2000's.

Nah, I'm very conscious of what I said and stand by it.

Yes, because you're bull-headed and don't know when to admit you're wrong. I can see now why you and Rotten Jesus have such a wonderful rapport. I'm beginning to feel the same way about you. :)

Actually the 1930s-1940s were known as 'The Golden Age of Hollywood' for a reason. :P

But you bring up a fine point. The '80s are over and aren't coming back; time to move on and accept that these are our times.

But the 1970's were the renaissance of film introducing Lucas, Spielberg, Scorcese, Coppola, and the like.

"Our times" have nothing to do with the sheer lack of creativity behind this remake.

The suit is a bland design: a generic copy of a "Mass Effect" outfit with a motorcycle helmet. By all accounts, the film is being another crass piece of commercialism (RoboCop becomes a "Transformer" in the movie), everyone who has read the script says it's terrible, and the director himself has expressed his misery because he has next to no creative input on the film.

"Our Times" has a lot to do with it. The current blockbusters are going to influence this remake whether we like it or not. Robocop's suit design was good in the EIGHTIES, this is no longer the eighties. Current designs call for sleeker, smaller, and darker.

When there's a BTTF remake we'll have a different car for the time machine, when there's a ghostbusters reboot we will have a redesign of their costume. Things are different. Eighties geeks just have to accept change and hope for the best.

I'm not saying this Robocop remake is going to be amazing, I'm just open to change.

He looks like a linebacker from space, and not in a good way.

Hahaha, he does look like Commander Shepard now that you mention it.

Which works for those games. Not for goddamn RoboCop.
