    I'll wait for a trailer, but I'm a bit underwhelmed at the moment.

    I'm just whelmed at the moment.

    It would be better to just say you were indifferent.;)

    Is it possible to be underwhelmed when all we have to go on is a title, a director, a writer and a few casting announcements? There's basically nothing of substance from which to make any sort of judgment.

    But that's not the same thing, plus it's not as fun to say. :)

    ^Underwhelmed? Overwhelmed with indifference?

    Hugh Laurie is in talks to play the villain, the CEO of Omnicorp.

    That would be fun. Hope Weller gets a cameo too.

    I just hope they don't make the costume TOO sleek and futuristic. More than anything, Robo needs to look big and intimidating and robotic, both to be a credible threat to the crime world and to distance himself as much as possible from his humanity.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I have a feeling what they come up with is just going to make him look like a guy wearing cool superhero armor or something.

    I never thought I'd see the day when Gary Oldman plays what is apparently a good guy role, while Hugh Laurie takes villain duties!

    Gary Oldman plays Commissioner Gordon in the Batman movies. That is a good guy role.

    Any word on whether they are going to keep the old Robocop theme for the remake? :confused:

    All I know is if Robocop suddenly starts flying in this remake, I'll be walking out of the theater.

    I still have horrible memories of Robocop 3! :(

    Ugh, not sure what was worse. The flying, or him getting his arm chopped off by a robot ninja.

    I remember being the only adult in the theater when I saw it (only once in my life!).
