“Robocop” Remake Delivers First Official Trailer
Now that WORLD WAR Z has opened, I don’t know if there’s another movie forthcoming that has been met with as much criticism and hatred as the ROBOCOP remake. The hopeful MGM reboot, from ELITE SQUAD director Jose Padilha, has been in hot water ever since the mech suit was revealed to be black rather than the immortalized gray. Well, in the first official trailer for the film, we’re given an explanation, and some glimpses of the new Robocop. Check out the trailer below (and 7 new stills in the gallery above):
It isn’t awful, though Joel Kinnaman just doesn’t do anything for me based on this footage, and I’m a sympathizer, being a fan of (season 1 of) THE KILLING. The film has an undeniably strong cast around him, with Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Keaton, Jay Baruchel, Aimee Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Miguel Ferrer, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Jennifer Ehle. It’s due out February 7th, 2014.
