The latest from RoboCop offers a mixed bag of good and bad. On one hand, we have a pretty cool international poster featuring art we've previously seen used in a promo from Sony. On the other hand, we have a new photo of Joel Kinnaman fitted inside his cyborg body, which looks more like a Body Glove wetsuit occupied by a man afraid to get in the water than it does an awesome weapon of mass destruction. Find out why we'll be seeing more of Joel Kinnaman's face than we ever did of Peter Weller's in the 1987 original after you check out this latest look at the sci-fi action thriller, in theaters soon.
Its hard to tell if it's the vanity of the actor or the precious health of keeping his mouth in tact when Joel Kinnaman discusses why we'll be seeing more of Murphy's face this time around the remake block. The Norwegian thespian chose to ditch the visor so that his lovely face could get more screen time.
"It was important to me that the visor not be covering my face all the time. It's hard to act with just your jaw."
Think back to when you were a teenage boy, Kinnaman. Did you want to see Peter Weller's face more than a kick-ass violence dispensing machine of justice? To quote, 'Nah, dog!'
