The first photos from the set of the "RoboCop" remake have appeared online and they give us a decent glimpse at the new and slicker RoboCop armor design. I don't know what the fans are going to say about the new design, but I have some decidedly mixed feelings about it, probably because I've become so used to the original design. It's certainly going to be an entirely updated experience. "RoboCop" is a remake/reboot of Paul Verhoeven's classic sci-fi. The updated version is directed by Jose Padilha ("Elite Squad") and stars Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing") as Alex Murphy/RoboCop, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel and Michael Keaton. The movie is scheduled for release on August 9, 2013. Here is the official synopsis :
"In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release."
