New Robocop on-set photos show off armor, Michael Keaton


Yeah, so what if I picked the most boring pic for the header just because Michael Keaton is in it? What are you going to do about it? Nothing, that’s what, because it’s f**king Micheal Keaton

I guess it sums up my attitude toward this reboot that I’m more excited to see Micheal Keaton standing with his arms crossed than to actually glimpse the titular Robocop himself. I’m not saying I think the movie is destined to fail or anything, I just cannot get behind that damn armor design. I still think it looks too much like a suit and not enough like an actual cybernetic prosthesis of some kind. The dude is supposed to be a cyborg, not some schmuck in a plastic-y getup. It’s not a deal breaker, but the movie will have that much less room to falter and still be allowed my forgiveness.

Oh,and if for whatever reason you’ve never seen the original Robocop, here is the requisite synopsis of the reboot:

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 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 (Kinnaman) is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes 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.
