First Look At Robocop's ED-209
OmniCorp website has the tech

Spotters' badge to Coming Soon for picking up on some interesting additions to the OmniCorp website Sony has set up to promote its Robocop reboot. Additions to the armoury of OmniCorp (ominous slogan: "We've got the future under control") include some scary-looking droids and other miscellaneous tech.


The first glimpse of the new Robocop suit set Empire's forum ablaze
- and not in an entirely good way - so we'll be following your feedback on this little lot closely. The XT-908 aerial drone indicates a state that's repressing its people from sky as well as ground, while the new-look ED-209 is, refreshingly, pretty similar to the version created by Phil Tippett and Randy Dutra, even down to its 'battle'-worn detailing.

Director José Padilha's slant on the cyber-copper gives Joel Kinnaman the title role, and that of his pre-injury, fully human version, Alex Murphy. Gary Oldman plays a scientist who helps convert Kinnaman’s cop into the cyborg officer, while Samuel L. Jackson is Pat Novak, a “charismatic TV mogul", presumably with a touch of the Bill O'Reillys about him.

Robocop is out in the UK on August 9, 2014. Look out for the ED-209 inspired rave kinda-anthem '20 Seconds To Comply', meanwhile, on the soundtrack of The World's End this week.

Missles?
You'd think a company spending this much on a promotional video for advanced military robotics could afford a spell-checker (00:22) More

No Robocop-out for me
Am I the only one who thinks the new suit looks good? Looking forward to this, new ED looks badass and loved the original but aways a fan of seeing modern takes on our favorite 80s classics. When's it out? More

This is not that far off reality!
The scary thing about that preview of Robocop is that it's not actually that far off reality! There are companies out there now, such as Boston Dynamics, currently well into development on remote control and even fully autonomous robots. Years down the line, these robots have the potential to unleash horrendous consequences in the name of a distant and completely detached human population. Keep in mind also that the Vietnam war only came to an end because Americans became tired of seeing bod More

The droid looks complete shit! but then it actually looks better than the Black Robocop we have seen and have coming! which doesn't say much for the total shit that is the Black Robocop!. This whole movie should be burned before it can be released!. More

this helps me realize how GOOD the old robocop look is. This model doesn't even look like it could fit a person inside More

Oh dear...
The Robocop suit looks awful. Twenty five years later and that's the best take on it they can come up with! It makes you realise how talented Rob Bottin is, the original suit still looks really good today. More

August 2014?!
Has it been pushed back again? Last I heard it was out next spring, not next summer. Principal photography began a year ago ... can't possibly take 2 years to finish unless something has gone very wrong. More
