"SAFETY. CONVICTION. LEADERSHIP.
For a half-century, these words have set the framework upon which OmniCorp has aimed to build a brighter world.

We don't do passive technology. At OmniCorp, our solutions generate a beacon of safety that we shine upon on the dangers of the day. No matter the obstacle - political, cultural, philosophical - we pursue our convictions around the globe to secure peace of mind at home. And when this requires bold new direction, we never allow doubt to shrink our duty. When your quality of life is in the balance, our leadership team will tip the scales.

Jose Padilha's remake has attracted quite a cast. Joel Kinnaman as Murphy/Robocop, Gary Oldman as his scientist-creator and Samuel L. Jackson as a media mogul. Hugh Laurie is also in negotiations to star as the/a villain.

BANE5000 - 7/7/2012, 12:35 PM
I wonder if they will make ED209 squeel like a pig when he falls down like in the original :D
thanos83 - 7/7/2012, 12:37 PM
atleast its been 20+ years since the last one..the movie has a great cast so far as well,it wont be like verhovens masterpiece, but ill give that a pass if it ends up being a great sci-fi film.they are sorely needed
thanos83 - 7/7/2012, 12:38 PM
Prometheus was like a kick in the balls..poor ridley.
HeadPool420 - 7/7/2012, 12:44 PM
What if the new Ed209 sounded like the battle droids Star Wars? I poop my pants laughing so hard!
HeadPool420 - 7/7/2012, 12:44 PM
*from Star Wars. Damn phone.:\
MagneticMischief1865 - 7/7/2012, 12:46 PM
Eh...looks good I suppose. Nothing too special though. Judgement withheld until we see the big guy though...
LiquidSmoke - 7/7/2012, 12:46 PM

CBMM1 - 7/7/2012, 12:47 PM

JakeMurdock89 - 7/7/2012, 12:48 PM
I'm really pulling for this movie Im a huge robocop fan and grew up watching the original, I'm really curious to see what the new robocop design looks like
95 - 7/7/2012, 12:50 PM
ED-209 used to scare the shit out of me. Now I'm interested. Good virals have lead disappointment for me, hopefully that isn't the case here.
AlexRival - 7/7/2012, 12:51 PM
That looks pretty sweet, they now have my attention, hopefully they'll get my interest.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/7/2012, 12:51 PM
Still hate the casting choice for Robocop. Fassbender FTW
Riddick33 - 7/7/2012, 12:52 PM
Nice find Ror
JakeMurdock89 - 7/7/2012, 12:57 PM
Hugh Laurie is probably gna be a big shot at OCP
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/7/2012, 1:01 PM
I would have go with Fass or Wilson too as Murphy.

I give this a shot thou. Might be okey.
TheSoulEater - 7/7/2012, 1:01 PM
Yay

marvel72 - 7/7/2012, 1:01 PM
i'm liking the look of ed-209,i hope robocop is just as good.
Jolt17 - 7/7/2012, 1:04 PM
Could be quite impossible to surpass the original one, but, I'm very interested to see a modern take of the character. So...I'll see the movie that way, and I'll still anticipate it for that.

Nice glimpses, though. Great details there. Can't [frick]ing wait to see the armor as a whole.

Please put down your weapon ... You have 20 seconds to comply! ...




... I am now authorized to use physical force!!

Awesome!
jessepostal - 7/7/2012, 1:12 PM
you have thirty seconds to comply!! looks great! i hope its bloody!!
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/7/2012, 1:13 PM
Gotta rewatch the first two.

Tom Noonan was awesome as the psychotic Drug Lord Cain in the sequel.
TruePunishment - 7/7/2012, 1:15 PM
Dead or alive, you're coming with me.
DamoC - 7/7/2012, 1:16 PM
I bet robocop looks like the guy out of Crysis 2. but I'm pretty Jazzed about this one, Ed-209 looks pretty sweet.

I'm a little pissed off they're not calling the company OCP and they changed it to omnicorp.
Danbojohnj - 7/7/2012, 1:23 PM
The old one looked better,this looks like a Bay Transformer
jshark - 7/7/2012, 1:34 PM
Remakes are fine if they refresh the material, but simply polishing the old material won't work.
Tainted87 - 7/7/2012, 1:37 PM
I really hope they keep the theme from the original - it's powerful stuff.

Not sold yet, but I am curious about Hugh Laurie.
OrsonRandall - 7/7/2012, 1:45 PM
I hope he still growls like a lion.
nowtheresaBATman - 7/7/2012, 1:48 PM
@Danbojohnj it's Starscream from the waste down :P
nowtheresaBATman - 7/7/2012, 1:50 PM
don't like how the new ED209 looks?

You've got 10 seconds to comply.....9....
spidey1994 - 7/7/2012, 1:51 PM
The new ED-209 looks pretty sick.
ManOfKrypton - 7/7/2012, 2:06 PM
looks gd so far.
DioFoRio - 7/7/2012, 2:10 PM
seems this movie is taking the right steps in being relevant in our time. Drones watching our every move and military equipment being used to 'police" our citizens. I smell a good flick.
Ha1frican - 7/7/2012, 2:15 PM
Ill keep an open mind but the old movies suck ass.
ComicBookGoth - 7/7/2012, 2:31 PM
can stairs still kill it ???


continuezero - 7/7/2012, 2:31 PM
Ummm...F*cking Sold!! I'm a pretty big Robocop fan and was skeptical but this was very impressive imo for a preview video. Kept the original elements but well updated.

I now look forward to this...

@Grif you need to chill out dude, why even come on here if you hate everything? I'm glad they went back to ED209. 209 really got shafted in the originals due to the budget and the limitations on fx. No more stop motion = Bad Ass 209 and Robocop battle.
continuezero - 7/7/2012, 2:33 PM
@Comicbookgoth Ya I hope that gets left out, even Robocop was surprised that it worked. That would be like using tripping wire. This new one looks way more menacing.
DoomXfactor - 7/7/2012, 2:33 PM
Not bad. We'll see how it looks on the big screen
