Samuel L. Jackson looks like Abe Lincoln there.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

Hmm, that actually looked kinda good. Certainly seems more interesting than the Total Recall remake, at least.

It looks like a screaming pile of shit. However, they have some decent cast members so you never know...

I thought that trailer was better than the first one. It still looks like it will most likely be a Netflix rental for me, but before I wasn't even sure if I was interested enough for that.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

Is Samuel L. Jackson trying to sell me on the idea of Robocop, a Capital One Quicksilver Card or to allow the Avengers to carry out their defense of New York? I'm so confused!

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

The more I see the more terrible and generic it looks. I'm not even sure the raw, uncut, cinematic power of SLJ will get me in to see this. Eh, who am I kidding? I'm a movie whore, I'll end up seeing this.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

So, that RoboCop prequel is a BSG prequel in disguise?

Honestly I don't know how in depth it is, but it does look as if the themes in the movie have been modernized. It has the potential to be much better than the original.

Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

If nothing else it looks like they found a way to believably update OCP. The previous sequels, TV series and TV movies kept trotting out the same exact OCP which was feeling tired and dated as hell by that point.

Yeah, the only thing that really interests me about this film is how Keaton seems to be playing an evil Steve Jobs.
