Joel Kinnaman was spotted in Vancouver last night, shooting scenes for the upcoming reboot of the 80's classic film, Robocop. Here we have some new photos of the star of The Killing, the actor was seen riding on a bike that looks very similar to Robocop's actual costume. Could this be another gift from Omnicorp? The film was shot at the Vancouver Olympic Cauldron, tonight however the film will be moving location to the Vancouver Convention Centre for another late night shoot.

































RoboCop is an upcoming 2014 American science fiction action film directed by José Padilha. It is a remake of the 1987 film of the same name, portraying the character's development into an officer transformed into a cyborg. The film stars Joel Kinnaman in the title role, with Gary Oldman as Dr. Robert Norton, Michael Keaton as Raymond Sellars, Samuel L. Jackson as Pat Novak, Abbie Cornish as Ellen Murphy, and Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox.

In 2028, multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning 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 crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured while on duty, OmniCorp utilize their knowledge in robotics to save Murphy's life. Murphy thus returns to the streets of his city with new abilities, but also with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

A couple of weeks ago I watched the original Robocop on Netflix, and boy is that a gruesome violent, hard R-rated movie... and I loved every second of it.

There's no way this thing isn't a watered down PG-13 remake. This saddens me.

Taking forever to shoot this bitch, ain't it?
Jobin - 5/11/2013, 10:08 PM
This looks like shit. Pass......hard R or nothing for RoboCop.
JR - 5/11/2013, 10:09 PM
^thats bad news
MementoMori - 5/11/2013, 10:18 PM
@jobin - Agreed. 100%
ComicsBornAndBred - 5/11/2013, 10:25 PM
This movie looks like its going to a sleeper. I think its going to reinvigorate the Robocop character and make him popular again. Maybe we'll see cartoons for him, comic books etc. I think this we'll be a kind of semi-epic film. The cast is great. They've surrounded Kinnaman with grade A casting. It reminds me of how Nolan said he wanted to cast his Batman films like Donner. Richard Donner surrounded his Reeve with a great and tenured cast. Nolan surrounded Bale with the same. Robocop looks to be doing the same.
Comicmoviesrlz - 5/11/2013, 10:25 PM
Jobin is totally right. If this is not a hard R then it going to suck.

That why Robocop was so awesome and still is awesome to this day. Does anyone know if this will be R rated.

If they decided to say well we want kids to go see it then [frick] the studio.
Lizardking310 - 5/11/2013, 10:26 PM
What the hell? They're still filming this? How long has it been shooting now?
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/11/2013, 10:29 PM
What was acceptable back then has changed today

Suit still looks like dogshit.
Ceejay - 5/11/2013, 11:02 PM
The original maybe a fun cult favorite but this new version looks visually superior already. I'm all for the stealth suit instead of the cheesy chrome (spot you a mile away) original. As long as he doesn't walk like a child's wind up toy then I can see this movie eclipsing the original by a mile. Naturally fanboys will moan about their childhood being raped as usual because they're always the only ones who never grow up and move on from their childhood things. The rest of the world audience that matters will probably make this a sleeper hit.

Wassup wit that right hand man?

Interested to see what the trailer will be like...
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/11/2013, 11:32 PM
That looks [frick]ing amazing. I can't wait to see it!!! :D
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/11/2013, 11:34 PM
@PeterDarker: A Guy built like a tank would also be incredibly pointless, since he can't chase perps and you can't always fire a missile at an escaping target.
He should move like Captain America, the perfect fusion of man and machine.
AlternateNo4 - 5/11/2013, 11:44 PM
@ceejay & getsuga - you're kidding, right? uh, the whole point of the way he looked and moved is that he's supposed to be a BAD IDEA. he wasn't designed to be effective, he was created to be a flashy, shiny commercial for omni. it was set in detroit for a reason... he's supposed to remind you of a CAR.

this was a paul verhoeven film, man... we were supposed to HATE what they did to murphy, and the fact that he was ultimately victorious was supposed to be sadly ironic in that corporate commercialism and big industry succeeded in making us want what they wanted instead of what we knew was right.
CaptainRedFurySpain - 5/11/2013, 11:55 PM
I thought this crap was already cancelled.
InfiniteMonkey - 5/12/2013, 12:51 AM
This sounds remotely like the Six Million Dollar Man.
"We have the technology. We can rebuild him."
NeoBaggins - 5/12/2013, 12:54 AM
Looks like Batman and Iron Man had a baby.
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/12/2013, 1:15 AM
@AlternateNo4: which is EXACTLY why this is a reboot.
It's a chance to show that he's become the perfect fusion of man and machine, the ultimate success of Corporate America, that humans are now obsolete. Machines can do better.
It's not 100% like the original. You're right, the original DOES bring up all those points you've mentioned, but as i said, this is a reboot, a chance to explore somethign different or (as i've just pointed out) the same in a different manner. All in all, i want to see what WETA can deliver.
PLUSH - 5/12/2013, 1:27 AM
Ass :P
KingSilence - 5/12/2013, 2:01 AM
I'm guessing that this will let us down just like the Total Recall remake did. When was the last time that an 80's reboot was successful?
continuezero - 5/12/2013, 2:24 AM
Ya I agree with the points about how he's built like a tank and therefore moves like one. He wasn't made to be a commercial, OCP made him to help privatize policing in their effort to take control of Detroit. He was an urban assault weapon against crime. Anyone that says he can't chase down perps has never seen Robocop because he's chased down plenty of perps across 3 movies. He's all about bein a super durable urban pacification cyborg. He's not a dude in a robot suit with ninja agility. I could see some bad guys designed like that, kinda like the asian robot in 3. Robo need's the big chest, massive feet with thundering steps and an overall robotic feel. He is a robot after all.
RPD - 5/12/2013, 2:24 AM
I'm not trying to be "that guy", or anything, but I don't get the love for the old Robocop. I saw that shit when it came out and it was alright but nothing special. Now, seems to me, that it's considered some kind of awesome cult classic or whatever. I don't get it. Is it because it's old? Because it's cool to like it now, like bacon? Someone enlighten me, please...
Chewtoy - 5/12/2013, 2:33 AM
This will do just as well as the Total Recall remake.

I doubt this will have the balls to even be as satirical as Shane Black's Iron Man 3, what with its American Vets as suicide bombers, Osama Bin Laden as a theatrical patsy, the President crucified while wearing his empty patriotic gesture of a defense, and the military industrial complex happily managing a conflict that need never end and cut into their bottom line. Hell, simply painting the War Machine armor Red, White and Blue and market testing the name "Iron Patriot" with focus groups shows more satirical edge than that Robobatman design up there.

And make no mistake... Iron Man 3 was way more watered down as satire than the original Robocop.
dkhager - 5/12/2013, 2:33 AM
sleeper hit right here..watch n see
Chewtoy - 5/12/2013, 2:41 AM
RPD: you saw the original 1987 Robocop when it came out, and yet you seem to think it was a cult hit that is only cool to like now?

I'm not usually this guy, but does your mom know that you're using the Internet?
RPD - 5/12/2013, 2:58 AM
I was 16 when the original Robocop came out so, yeah, I saw it. It was an okay movie, nothing to get worked up about, and it was kinda forgotten. It wasn't until recently, on the internet anyway, that I started seeing a bunch of shit being posted about how awesome it is. Granted it's been a LONG time since I watched it but if it were so awesome I should remember more about it...
thewolfx - 5/12/2013, 3:22 AM
@rpd


Smh with a side of face/palm


Anyways the suit looks horrid ..thats all i know
VinzClortho - 5/12/2013, 3:23 AM
They're still shooting this thing?? I think I saw the first stills of him in costume like a year ago.
loveturnmills - 5/12/2013, 3:27 AM
@RPD

You're a clown. That movie went to legendary status the moment it came out.
RPD - 5/12/2013, 3:32 AM
I was there and I don't remember that at all. I guess it's just me, though, 'cause it's got an 88% / 71% on RT. I never knew people liked it so much. I've only known one person, in my 42 years, that ever talked about Robocop. I just don't see the appeal...
ComicFan1134 - 5/12/2013, 4:21 AM
@White- Agreed, Hard R Or GTFO, Plaus RPD, I Remember Seeing Robocop As A Kid,Too, It Was An Awesome Movie, But, Not For Everyone,LOL!

I won't buy that for a dollar
JoeMomma29 - 5/12/2013, 5:14 AM
Gusto loves Robocop since it is his home town hero. We are sort of rooting for this new one Gusto!

marvel72 - 5/12/2013, 5:15 AM
i hope this is good,i love the hardcore violence of the original.
RPD - 5/12/2013, 5:16 AM
@McGee I barely even remember the movie other than it being a cheesy action movie that I didn't care much for...
CartoonKid5050 - 5/12/2013, 5:24 AM
@RPD I've always loved Robocop, ever since I was a kid...Believe it or not this was my 'Go to' VHS growing up...As a kid though, it was all about a 'Cool Robot' taking out the bad guys but, the biggest tragedy with Robocop is that it's completey undersold as an 'Action movie', sure, there is a lot of action in it but, it's so much more than that...It's sattire, showing the greed in commercialism not just at a corporate level...It shows the excess to which technology rules our lives, the whole movie is an allegory, a prediction of what the future will be (And not too far off that prediction either!) it's symbolic...Verhoeven has compared this movie to 'Jesus and Satan'. Robocop being Jesus i.e. A tragic figure, man turned to cyborg, loses family...Infact one of the saddest lines I've ever heard in a movie is from this movie, when Robocop/Murphy is sitting in the steel mill asking Lewis about his family, she tells him and he replies "I can feel them, but I can't remember them", it's delivered in such an empathetic yet, 'Robotic' way...Satan would be OCP/Consumerism and how this over takes a person and can corrupt the mind...Believe me, I'm not doing it justice here...If you seen it at 16 you may not have understood the themes of it properly (I didn't truly understand it until I was maybe 19 or 20) If you seen it at 16, it came out in '87, you're obviously old enough now that I'm sure you'll really understand it...I'd highly recommend watching it again! Please do, since I registered with this site just to reply to your comment lol

To add, there is a Robocop novel I read a few years ago, in part this helped me really understand the empathy of Robocop...In the movie, Robocop visits his old family home, eventually there is a shot of a broken coffee mug, in the novel this scene is elaborated further...It was actually Robocop who picked up the mug, unbroken but, it breaks in his hand, it emphasis that his metal hands have no feeling, he can see himself hold the mug but, he can't feel it in his hand, he doesn't know how hard he's holding it that ultimately it breaks...Put yourself in that position...Imagine picking something up, anything, coffee mug, Remote control, whatever? but having absoloutely zero feeling of it in your hands or on your fingers...This is just part of the tragedy of 'Part man, part machine'. Please watch it! And make sure it's the Directors cut version!
