They didn't exactly eat up the 2012 remake of "Total Recall"...

"Total Recall Remake Disappoints at the Box Office"

So I think there will be some worried faces behind this "RoboCop" remake....
The feel I'm getting is "That's good fan art. But why?"

I was honestly more psyched about "Total Recall" which failed... and I feel even worse for this one so far. The sentiment I have so far is the same as audiences had with "Total Recall".

"No one was asking for a remake.... Pass."

I think that all these remakes are aimed at younger people who weren't around in the 1980s and 1990s, and thus haven't seen many of the movies that we oldies consider classics...

I don't like the current "Let's remake/reboot everything!" trend much either.

And its too bad, because it was a decent movie. Regardless if it had Arnold in it or not.

I say this because there is a reason the original Robocop Design is ICONIC.

Rob Bottin designed a look that looked like a true cyborg, NOT IRON MAN Mark VII.



It does look like something designed by someone without an understanding of what made the original design work.


I absolutely agree, the new version is just too slick and lacks uniqueness. Looks more appropriate to a TRON flick rather than ROBOCOP.

just saw the pictures, and I HOPE that is not the final suit...and is just a test... (yeah I am dreaming here..)
cause if it is, it sucks 100%... theres no style at all. It looks way too (modern) iron man as people say...but worst, it lacks boldness. I mean whats the point of robocop without its shiny bluish/black suit...
...wait maybe it was going to cost too much in render time with all that shiny chromed metal... so they though screw it, lets make it dark grey semi-matted metal... nobody ll notice... yeah right..

..are they going to replace the slick retro visor with a huge snowboard-google style visor as well, to make it look "cooler"?

I am ranting on this one, cause I really like the old movies. And I am just talking about the suit here.. I ll wait for the trailer.. hope its not a captain-america styled robocop, and it keeps its dark retro feeling.

..they should've called Izumo Jyuki, I am pretty sure he ll come with something "appropriate" for the occasion... just sayin..

I have to agree it seems every film these days associates futuristic design with a sliced up stealth F-117 and the only reason that thing is so angular is because the 70's era mainframe computers were so primitive they couldn't calculate a radar cross section over a curved surface

In the movie the suit will probably look better closer up and with some dynamic poses and angles, and creative lighting.

If they are going to milk something dry I wouldnt mind seeing a Robocop vs Terminator movie.
Both franchises have worn themselves out and usually you pair them off when that happens.

I would pay to see a scene with the original Robocop exchanging punches with an endoskeleton or ED-209 taking on some Cyberdyne machines.

Hahaha!

I'm still a bit annoyed that they're remaking this. The first one rocks.

Haven't we seen this generic outfit before?





I'm sure there are plenty more. What a horrible concept for something so iconic.

Why does Hollywood do this and actually think it is hip and the right thing to do?

The feedback was "Total Recall is a well-made film, unfortunately, it's just about the same story as it was before....."

It doesn't always pay to be second to the market.... even if you know you can do better than the first.
