Jose Padilha’s Robocop remake has only been filming for two days, and already there has been a huge surge of news coming in for the film. Just yesterday we gave you the first look at Robocop’s new suit (hopefully the intention is to add stuff to it later on?), and while the Internet has been going a bit crazy with anger at the new suit (myself included), we pretty much get confirmation today that this is indeed how the suit will look.
Cine1 got their hands on an exclusive look at the film teaser poster, and you can view it below. It would appear to be a shot of Robocops suit in that there poster, so I presume we can take this as confirmation that Robocop is going to look, well, a bit daft really!
Also revealed today was that Dexter’s Aime Garcia is joining the cast as a scientist who helps put Robocop together. Phew, what a few days for the Robocop remake eh?
