I mean it has to be.
Are you saying you think this entire remake is a hoax?

Sounds more like Deathlok from Marvel than RoboCop.

That guy looks more like a Crysis reject than Robocop. Why change his look? Ugh.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

They updated the article in the link. That concept has nothing to do with Robocop.

UPDATE: An MGM rep has contacted CBM to clarify...
"MGM has no knowledge of Mike Jensen & he has never been hired by the studio or the production team to create any designs for the upcoming film, RoboCop. We would like to request that you correct the post."

Nice. MGM probably noticed the deafening bad buzz and were forced to respond. Hopefully this means they realize we want a suit as close to the original as possible.

They should do original stuff instead of remaking everything.

Possible Concept Art for ROBOCOP Revealed?

^Oh Dear...

...in fairness though, this might just be *early* concept art. To add a little perspective, this is what an early design of the original Robocop looked like...it too looks a tad familiar, no? )

Oh but the original RoboCop was designed with Dredd in mind!

The original Robocop started off because Charlie Lippincott wanted to make a Judge Dredd movie...

Didn't think the link survived long enough for that helmet design though - that *is* Dredd's helmet....

SNIP

I believe that was deemed fake a few weeks ago.



Apparently Drew McWeeny has read the script. BIG grains of salt!



http://www.examiner.com/article/upco...some-criticism


I'll share this one detail. In the film, when Murphy is turned into RoboCop 1.0, it's described 'a high-tech version of the '80s suit.' Then they show a focus group scene where criminals laugh at the design. "He looks like a toy from the '80s!" So they redesign him to look 'meaner' as RoboCop 2.0, who passes focus group approval. So they not only make sure to include the original design, they also point out it's dated and stupid. *facepalm*
Hold onto your sides for more hilarious RoboCop details. They outsource his construction to China. #seriously
Oh, god... oh dear god... RoboCop is a Transformer. He goes from "social mode" to "combat mode" and back. Full transformation.
Good god... it just keeps topping itself. It's like someone wrote a script scientifically fine-tuned to destroy me. Someone shows Pope, head of the OCP project, some mock-ups for RoboCop action figures. 'Are you kidding? I wouldn't buy that for a dollar!' Yeah, that just happened. NOT SO FUNNY NOW, IS IT?!

If true, this movie will play up the "He's a product" angle more than the 1987 movie.

Robocop is no different than the latest Ipod


Having a "Criminals focus group" is probably some attempt by the movie to copy the 80's satire angle.


I understand that with the OCP employee looking at Robocop action figures.
