The first RoboCop trailer is out and already the mixed feelings are circling my mind stocks-banner style, as I want to give it the benefit of the doubt in that it looks like it could be an entertaining feature. At the same time, the fanboy in me comes out as I remember the original. In the trailer, we see the nod to the original films with the silver metal suit, but at one point it’s decided that a more “tactical” black look would be more efficient and it erks me. The original, better looking suit was there and they made a conscious decision to change it. Other than that, I am going to be more optimistic (as I tend to be) even though I’m pretty sure this will fall in line with the Total Recall and Dredd movies that will soon be forgotten, unlike their timeless predecessors.
RoboCop will be released on February 7th, 2014.
