Default New RoboCop (2014) Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBeSfnIT_Bw

What do you guys think?

Personally, I was cautiously excited until Batman said "Make him tacticool", after that I closed the tab and went to look for the original RoboCop to watch tonight to make the tears go away.

I don't think you can do Robocop without being cheesy.

Seriously, fuck this movie.

MGM took the RoboCop Rap off YouTube. Bolvar wants to shoot something.

Looks a faithful adaptation, more or less. I'll give it a watch once it hits theaters. Just hope he doesn't end up in black paint the entire movie.

also this. But then again i'm of the opinion that you need to spoiler yourself on a movie to judge whether or not it's worth your time and money, so since i'm going to read the TvTropes page before watching it anyway.... eh.

Seems like they did the same with the musical but hopefully someone re-uploaded it.

Seriously though, I feel like this remake can't hold a candle to the original.

Let me make this very clear. This movie will be terrible. Save your "but.. b-but Gary Oldman"'s for later. This movie will be terrible. It seems like such a watered down, straight up generic, no social commentary, no edgy near-future setting. Michael Keaton and Gary Oldman are doing nothing for me. Simply no vision in this film. Might as well call it the Total Recall Reboot Pt. II.

In a world where there's already tons of combat robots and whatnot, why would RoboCop be a big deal? In the original he only came up as a contingency because ED-209 was shit.

I agree.

What is sad is that Detroit is actually turning in to the original Robocop, so it'd be SO EASY to make a real, relevant social commentary with this film now.

Instead, it's going to be all "well, he doesn't have free will... OH WAIT HE DOES."

Sadder yet is that Michael Keaton hardly does any movies, he's a really good actor, and his return to a major big-budget film for the first time in years is going to be this steaming turd.

How could they?

What could he possibly do on TV that is any more provocative than what MTV shows 24/7?

The real robocop is a souless machine that dispenses justice and says corny lines.

This isnt robocop.

But at least it isnt edgy crap you would expect 'creative' people to pump out in the year of our lord 2013.

Unimpressed. But then look at Man of Steel. Awesome trailers, yet okayish movie. And then Pacific Rim. Unimpressive trailer, but awesome movie. So it could be good.
