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.
They are going to try to make him into Iron Man?
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.
^ Yes but not opposite Hugh Laurie.
Any word on whether they are going to keep the old Robocop theme for the remake?
I wouldn't be surprised.
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.
Looks to be robocops leg?
I remember being the only adult in the theater when I saw it (only once in my life!).
They should use this design.
