New 'Robocop' set photos give a better look at his visor and weapons
It's amazing to me just how much email I still get about those first set photos from Robocop, and it seems to me the verdict on his new design is pretty split. So today we have a pair of new shots that will probably stir the debate up again, as they give us a fuller look at Joel Kinnaman as the cyborg hero.
Battlestar Galactica. That's not to say it's bad, just an observation. Also, we get a look at the weapon Robocop will be using to blow away crime, which also is similar to the original. The curious thing to me are the human hands he retains, which I guess are a means of showcasing his humanity? I'm thinking it could turn out to be a plot point as the evil OmniCorp tries to sell Robocop to the public.
What do you think? Are you digging the new design? Or would you prefer something more traditional? Directed by Jose Padilha, Robocop takes over the streets on August 9th 2013.[Flickr]
