'RoboCop' First Look Set Photos of Joel Kinnaman in His Cyborg Suit!

The actor takes on the role of Officer Murphy in this remake of the seminal 80s sci-fi classic.
That ol' whippersnapper Ed Douglas has landed two set photos from director José Padilha's RoboCop, a remake of the seminal 1987 sci-fi classic originally directed by Paul Verhoeven. These first two images offer us a pretty good view of Joel Kinnaman in his cyborg suit. The actor plays Officer Murphy, a cop who is left for dead after a bust gone bad, only to be brought back to life through the use of advanced robotics. The original suit worn by Peter Weller has become an iconic and instantly recognizable part of pop culture. This new black suit (one of a reported four different suits that will be used throughout the film), with its lifting face visor, on the other hand, looks like a background actor's costume from the recent Total Recall remake. Fans of the original movie will surely call blasphemy. Not sure what those new to this franchise will think. Please leave your comments below.

By request, these photos have been removed.

RoboCop was released February 12th, 2014 and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel. The film is directed by José Padilha.

    I like it, but it looks more like plain armor rather than robot/cyborg body of the original. I also like the fact that there's 4 suits...

    The original Robocop was original, iconic, and extremely badass (for it's time anyway). This looks extremely generic, uninspired, and just plain lame. I have a feeling this movie is gonna bomb the same way that ill-advised Total Recall remake did.

    It's quite a new and interesting take on the suit. I have to see it in action before I make a final judgment, but very impressive. Liking it so far.
