The release of Jose Padilha’s Robocop remake is just a few weeks away, and today we have a rather large collection of clips to show of what Padilha has in store for us.
In the beginning I was dead against the idea of a remake as I adore the original film, and the US PG-13 rating has really put me off, but the more I see of this film the better it looks. Padilha has proved his worth as a talented director with the stunning two cop thrillers Elite Squad and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, so his talent with this remake could very well be the films saving grace.
Check out a number of clips below from training sessions to just talking. I am sure you’ll agree that seeing Robocop take on not one, but TWO ED-209s is impressive. There is also a retro style IMAX poster below.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, with Abbie Cornish playing his wife Ellen, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox, the man who dispenses the military training to Robocop, Michael Keaton plays Raymond Sellars, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak, and Aimee Garcia will play a scientists who helps put Robocop together. RoboCop is produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer.
Robocop arrives in UK cinemas 7th February 2014.
