Meh what's the point? I know it won't be terrible, and will no doubt he halfway watchable but is it gonna be anywhere near as good as the original, no.
Its just Total Recall 2 basically. A film that a year on I can honestly barely even remember
Damn.. hadn't seen this one. And the icing on the cake? The Terminator theme as the trailer music

Makes you also think how much trailers have changed in the last 25 years. A trailer like that today might kill the movie before it's even released or at least will get it into the top 10 of the worst trailers ever.

Movies have also changed.. a slow, robotic moving hero just doesn't cut it nowadays anymore. Of course the appeal of Robocop was that he's this slow, unstoppable Juggernaut and if you can see him it's too late- Hard to sell that today without a rock solid script, direction and cinematography.

Thanks for the flashback.
