    So this is a direct sequel to the original? Will it ignore Robocop 2/3? I hope Weller returns.

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


    Okay, this could be interesting. I wonder who they'll get to play Robo and Ann Lewis.

    Personally I thought the new movie wasn't that bad.

    Yeah, I kinda liked it. It just needed better action sequences and Robocop needed a better look. The all black thing didn't work.

    I'm interested in this. I also liked the reboot with Killerman and Keaton a few years back.

    Intriguing that this will indeed be a continuation of the original film and overlook all subsequent installments. Very Superman Returns-esque.

    That premise sounds interesting, though who knows how much of it this version will retain.

    It seems to be the trend now with Terminator, Halloween, and (maybe) Predator.

    Wasn't that sorta the point of the all black look? It wasn't supposed to actually be a look that we as the audience would like. It was just a product Keaton's character trying to make him look more marketable. Something like that I think. I haven't seen it in awhile.

    Excited for this sequel though.

    Yeah, that was the point of it in the movie, but they could have made it a little more aesthetically pleasing to the audience. He looked like he was wearing a rubber suit (which is what it probably was).

    Ah yeah, I hear you on that. Shame too, I think that design distracted a lot of people from what was a really fine performance from Kinnaman. The subtle accent change as he became less human was a really cool touch to me.

    I wonder how this movie will handle the look of RoboCop, which is just as much in the spirit of the 80s as anything else in the film.

    Yeah, I agree that Kinnaman was good in the role. It was an interesting take on the story, with Murphy knowing who he is when he first becomes Robocop and then being retooled to become more of a machine later on. Oldman and Keaton were also really good in the film.

    Now let's just hope Paul Verhoeven doesn't suddenly resurface and demand that Blomkamp's film be scrapped until he completes an extremely pretentious Robocop prequel trilogy.

    Robocop Returns!

    A direct sequel to Verhoeven's original classic, written by the original writers/creators, directed by Neill Blomkamp.

    This sounds perfect. Too good to be true even.

    :awesome:


    On a side note, I'm so happy for Neill. I'm still bitter over what went down with Alien 5. I hope he kills this and makes a great film!
