Proto-RoboCop?



Hey, folks.  Mike S popping in once again to bring you some more movie related news.  While cruising around "Arrow in the Head", I came across their little article about the "RoboCop" remake.

It seems that the official look of the new RoboCop is still being kept classified as "Top Secret", but pictures of a early RoboCop prototype (ED-208 Humanoid Drone) have been released.  Just look at the picture above, and you've got it.  ED-208, eh?  Looks a lot like the Iron Man armour to me.  This makes me wonder if the beloved ED-209 will make an actual appearance... and if so, how radically different will they make it?

Judging from the MGM and Sony released synopsis, I get the feeling this movie isn't going to stray too far from the original release:
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 fight the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp uses 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.
 Fans of the original are suffering mixed feelings about this movie.  Some are eagerly awaiting it- while others are dreading it.  Me?  I'll give it a whirl when it comes out (7th February, 2013), just to see what they do with it.  It could be Good... Bad... or Ugly.
