The Robocop remake has been getting a lot of flak from loyal fans of the ’80s classic ever since pictures leaked of Robocop’s new futuristic black armor. But today we finally have a trailer and an explanation of the armor that should put most fans at ease. Showing off the classic suit and teasing the reasoning behind the more sleeker suit, the remake actually looks pretty damn good.
Could it have the potential to be better than this generation’s Robocop, Dredd? It sure reminds me a lot of new Judge Dredd reboot with the new black visor and motorcycle, but we’ll have to wait and see next year when the film is set for release on February 7, 2014, with Joel Kinnaman in the title role, Gary Oldman as Dr. Dennett Norton, Michael Keaton as Raymond Sellars, Samuel L. Jackson as Pat Novak, Abbie Cornish as Clara Murphy, and Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox.
