Here's a few more photos from the set of Robocop featuring Joel Kinnaman in full robotic gear and brandishing his signature weapon. There's also a great photo of Robocop sitting down and texting. I know it's just a shot inbetween takes, but it's still funny to see this high tech robot still texting like the rest of us. In the movie I'm sure he would have something like that already built in.
There's been a ton of complaints about Robocop's new costume, but I'm one of the few that thinks it looks pretty cool. I see more of an anime style influence than the Batman one everyone is talking about. I think it will look even better when we see it in action. Has anyone else warmed up to the costume? Or am I alone in thinking it's cool?
The movie is being directed by Jose Padilha and also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams , Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center 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 (Kinnaman) 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 their 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.
