Looks bad ass!

Seriously tho, what they're talking about is interesting and deep. The thing is; movies based on all the poetic and thought-provoking subjects very seldom convey these attributes in the final product.

What is sold: Thought-provoking, social commentary in an action movie.

What is received: Cheap ass action movie.

Am very excited for this movie.

Before these recent one-shots, not so much.

In the last scene he tried to pull off the head then body turn like the original. Nope.

He seems closer to human than he does machine. Im not sure if this is intentional.

Hmmm! Well, what do you know-- once again, hearing the filmmakers talk about the THEMES and SUBSTANCE in the movie has brightened my outlook on this film even more! Now-- dare I say it-- I'm actually excited to see this film!

Now if the movie itself could just live up to the promise made by these featurettes... if it could just be the intelligent, thoughtful film it NEEDS to be, and not the vapid C.G.-fest the trailers have made it out to be... This could well end up being on of those rarified remakes that actually doesn't suck!

The silver/blue and black suit looks [frick]ing amazing. Much better than the sleeker black version. Looks chunkier and more robotic. I wonder if that's the point. After the public relations team gets involved they request that he looks less robotic and more like a guy in a suit, hence the black version.

@Neo, have you seen the movie?

The silver suit should have been kept. Looks better. The black should have just been a black version of the silver one, so the silver with black paint instead of the sleek, less robocop looking one.

Silver > black

I will be watching the film tonight.

I am looking forward to finding out if they keep these themes in the film. They make it sound very thought provoking and intelligent, but will these be addressed or retained in the final version? We'll see.

I like the look of what i've seen so far.

Looks like they did it right man. Tough reboot, but Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton, looks to be good
