I have to admit that this trailer took my by surprise — I actually like it. The 1987 RoboCop is a movie that absolutely, positively did not need to be remade; it was perfect the way it was, so any reimagining had better bring something new to the table, otherwise, what’s the point?
Well, I’m still not convince that this reboot — due in February — has anything new to say, but I will concede that this trailer has turned me from aggressively disinterested to… I’ll call it interested to see more.
So, a suit of black armor, Sam Jackson, Gary Oldman, ED-209 and Michael Keaton? Plus Abbie Cornish? This might have a chance. Might.
