Dead horse milking the dead cow.
That looked mind blowingly terrible O.o

I like this director a lot, he made two of the greatest Brazilian movies ever, but again he had all the freedom in the world over there, this on the other hand looks like a big studio movie with a huge budget and a lot of corporate men opinions, it might suck, who knows.
This looks like it could be even worse than that stupid Total Recall remake.
Shame to say, but it has to be a PG-13, as futuristic ass kicking robot appeals to a huge audience pool and the obvious merchandising rights that will come with it.
yes it should be a adult only movie, God knows there is only a few really good adult only sci fi movies, and I can probably count them all on two hands. But we all know that Hollwood is about "ill buy that for a Dollar".
Could you name those films, Sigma? For our future viewing pleasure (no sarcasm).
It appears from the trailer that they are trying to be worse than any other Robocop managed to be.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
Alien / Aliens. After the second they get a little silly
Starship Troopers (first one)
Robocop - First one
Disappointed in everyway possible, They could have made it a whole new story with a Robo4 instead of rebooting it.
Confused here... why are they calling him RoboCop?
I mean, why not just make it an original movie and just change the names? That's pretty much what they've done here and they wouldn't have to pay for the license. It's not like Robocop has a huge enough following to cash in on nostalgia and people wanting a remake. Plus, it's not really a remake when none of the original content is in it...
Seriously... a car bomb?! A human arm?! PG-13?! Christ, two of the best scenes in the first movie was when the guy gets blown away to bits and when that OCP guy gets shot by the ed209...
And I can just see how badly they're hammering in the touchy-feely BS about him being partly human and robot. It wasn't exactly subtle in the original movies, but it wasn't shoved down our throats.

I wish they didn't do this despite the nice cast but I understand movie studios predicament.
As I mentioned in another thread one of the biggest problems movie studios are having is getting people out to a new a film that isn't a sequel, reboot, book, or comic. Based on the US data only this year for instance The Croods is the highest grossest 'New" film at 187 million. There are 8 "old" films which did better. Last year I would put Brave as the top "New" film at 237 million with 7 films "Old" films doing better. In 2011 I want to say either the Help or Bridesmaids is the top new film at 169 million with 12/13 old films doing better. I think the Help is based off a book but I'm not sure.
So, if you were a movie studio do you go "new" or "old"?
The Thing (the Carpenter remake, more horror I suppose though)
Escape from New York
Solaris (the original)
The main problem I have with going into this Robocop remake isn't the rating ( Pg-13s these are capable of having some brutal violence, maybe not original Robocop brutal though) or the cast or Knight Rider aesthetics, but the fact Murphy isn't going to die. It's a small but important change and one which will change the complexion of the story and the Murphy character. Perhaps this version's story of a man reclaiming his humanity will be just as compelling as watching the original Murphy's resurrection slowly unfold, but I have my doubts. Given the nature of the remakes/reboots these days I expect it to be Robocop in name and concept alone. Still, the director is pretty good and Joel Kinnaman was good in The Killing (US) so it may not be too bad if you go into it expecting UnRobocop instead of a straight up remake of the Verhoeven original.
pretty much this.I mean FFS where is the Ultra Violence, The satire, The Fact Alex Murphy doesnt die and get resurrected instead this is just a watered downed pile of shit designed to appeal to kiddies and comic book Iron man fans and not fans of the original Robocop movie like me
Must hollywood rape every one of my most cherished movie franchises
I AM the world's first Shadow Mage.
This trailer is Garbage, Murphy remembering his Wife and Kid is crap, and him interacting with them is even more garbage. As one poster said, the story was about Murphy discovering his Humanity
And where the Hell is Lois? She was such a Vitally important character in all the movies, and her omission is unforgivable.
This seems to really just be a generic PG-13 Superhero vs. Evil Corporation movie masquerading as Robocop for the sake of doing more ticket sales, I cant say I blame them, but Im not giving them my money
