    Looks awful. At least they’re not copying the original story but it looks weak. Perversely, Murphy’s death scene was one of the highlights of the original. Looks like a car bomb here which is weak

    What are they thinking, that’s like re-making Citizen Kane, sacrilege.

    He knows his family as Robo. WTF?
    Looks bloody awful.
    I see a lot of big names though.
    Also far too much CGI.

    Agreed. The original is a stone cold classic that should have been left alone.

    Don’t remake it, just re release the original.

    Why is the trailer tagged at HQ when it is only 360P ???

    That looks utter bobbins!!! Looks like whoever remade it spectacularly missed the point of the original. How unlike Hollywood 🙄

    decades later I can still reel off the script verbatim.

    “can you fly bobby”

    “you see I got this problem, cops don’t like me…. so I don’t like cops’

    “Hey clarence a new toy? can I play?” “I LIKE IT” lol

    love that film. Go Robo!

    Saw a trailer for R I P D

    Looks like a better men in black cop movie than that remake is going to be.

    The guy who met the untimely death once the bitches had left is in this one too.

    His name escapes me..

    The remakes is meant to be more about coping with becoming robo, a bit like robocop 2..

    Because it’s high quality not High Definition.

    Well they’ve already **** up Total Recall so why not this too? Might as well do Short Circuit, Top Gun, Terminator and Under Siege while they’re at it.

    The ITV dubbed version without the naughty words has entered into folklore.

    “Ladies, leave”

    “once I even called him airhead”

    Remaking it is senseless, haven’t they got any new ideas? Plus as someone said above, they’ll just miss the point. Lucky you can buy the original on DVD for roughly a dollar…

    Man that should be ace with a cast including :
    Gary Oldman
    Michael Keaton (yes I like him)
    Samuel L. Jackson
    it even has Miguel Ferrer in it!

    but what a rubbish trailer…

    There will be nothing in this remake to match the original. Nothing.

    Great, another pointless Hollywood reboot. Robocop needed reimagining in the same way that Stevie Wonder needs a new set of bifocals.

    so why is it only 360P, that’s not high quality – to most folk anyway.

    That’s exactly what it is or at least to those who know, not sure what the majority think.

    R.I.P.D looks great fun.

    Jesus, that looks terrible. Could be some interesting stuff about “illusion of free will”, but the original was totally different in tone and should have been left alone.

    HOWEVER, it gives me the opportunity to post the best youtube video ever.

    Murphy spins a handgun on the bonnet of his car, he gets a call at random about Clarence Boddickaaar 😀

    I saw the trailer ^ and immediately I thought of the movie ‘i robot’ (same CGI/company behind it?).

    I don’t like it. Robocop is an insanely dated and brilliant film.

    Dredd should have been remade, robocop shouldn’t.

    Dredd with Stallone should never be made.
    Movie perfection.

    The thing is they’ve approached it from the opposite angle. Whereby in the original it was a machine struggling with his own illusion of (still) being human in this tosh it’s a bloke who’s had some machine bits bolted to him. Far less interesting dynamic in my opinion.

    They saved the arm… they were specifically told not to save the arm…
