I’m surprised by how much I like the new look for RoboCop, as in RoboCop himself. The only gripe I have about it is his head is still covered when the visor is off . When the visor is off, it looks more like a suit rather than like a cyborg. See for yourself.
And for the movie itself, it’s looking quite action packed, although I’m not sure how I feel in regards to the possible loss of satire of America culture. Fingers crossed though.
Also, here’s the original trailer, for old time’s sake (And yes, that is the Terminator theme being used)
