After much delay, criticism the first real chance to glimpse into José Padilha’s Robocop is finally here and see how well it’s going to standup to the 1987 version. The trailer does show the new version will provide many scenes homage to it’s source, even the infamous catchphrases ‘Dead Or Alive’ are in there too. On evidence of this trailer not everything is perfectly gelling together but it’s still a fairly convincing update with Padilha inserting his own new touches without loosing essence of this is Robocop! Hate me all you want I was never a fan of the original but there’s something in the new might just convince me to check this one out maybe it’s because it has Samuel L Jackson in it who loos like he’s going to deliver another Samuel Mother F*$kin! Jackson performance.
Still a long way to go until Robocop arrives 7th February 2014, the film co-stars Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson and Gary Oldman.
