That's not a bad alternative; certainly better than the thought of Clive Owen in the role.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

First look at Kinnaman in the suit:

Personally, I think it's underwhelming, though not horrible.

Iron Man's going to have a huge influence on armored folks in movies from now on. It was such a mainstream success the aesthetics have set a new standard.

The Enterprise-A had sex with the Enterprise-D which made the Enterprise-E.

I'm sure it will look much better in the finished movie. The Iron Man suit didn't so great until all the visual effects shots were completed.

I thought the same thing when I saw that picture.
Couldn't they have stuck a little blue in there. Jez.

Yeah, that's true. It's never the best idea to judge an outfit on the basis of shots like this.

But Jarod Russell's Iron Man/ Batman offspring remark perhaps best captures the apparent lack of originality this suit seems to have.

I'm remember many fans were pissed about the second Iron Man superbowl trailer and complained how Iron Man shooting the tank looked fake. Of course nearly them ended up loving the suit after seeing the movie.

Not even the trailers won't have all the visual effects done in time. Of course if it sucks in the completed film, fans have every right to complain.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

Looks decent enough, and the helmet is cool... but I was still hoping for something more than just standard superhero armor.

It looks like a suit he put on, instead of something that was actually built by an army of scientists and technicians.


Hell, even the Iron Man suit looks more "robotic" than this.

That first pic where he has the visor still on it looks like they visual input is red, going in a curve about the visor. That has a very Cylon look to it.

I'm just having trouble seeing Robocop, plenty of influences that make me think of other fare, but not Robocop at this point.

Yep.

Why does a cyborg need ABS?

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

Doesn't look he's doing much of a robotic walk either. Assuming that first shot is from filming, it looks like he's walking pretty naturally.

In fact I wouldn't be surprised if this Robocop does a lot of running and jumping around too (like the robots in I, Robot or something), just because, well, that's what all robots in scifi DO nowadays.
