Earlier in the week, we showed you a handful of set photos from José Padilha's RoboCop remake, which offered a look at Joel Kinnaman in his S.W.A.T. armor atop a shiny black motorcycle. We now have video of the S.W.A.T. Cycle in action! And while we never saw the original Robocop (with his lower case c) screaming around the streets of Detroit on any type of futuristic two-wheeled vehicle, the original Kenner toy line did provide Murphy with a cycle similar to the one we see here. This video is kind of cool and unique, in that we actually can hear director José Padilha giving direction to Joel Kinnaman. Though, it still baffles me why they are shooting this in Toronto and not Detroit. That's just pure blasphemy, especially with the tax incentives Detroit offers. Though, the whole thing looks like blasphemy at this point. Who knows, maybe it will be cool. But there's no way it will ever be better than the original. You need just look at this video to know that as fact.
By request, these photos have been removed.
RoboCop comes to theaters February 12th, 2014 and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Keaton, Jay Baruchel, Michael K. Williams. The film is directed by José Padilha.
