A second helping of preview footage from the upcoming Robocop remake has arrived!
Where the first trailer drew online criticism for looking too much like a film about a boring dude in a suit, this new teaser seems to be emphasising the social satire angle. After all, Paul Verhoeven’s original focused on the expansion of Corporate America by showing a future where the police was essentially privatised. Likewise, it seems that director José Padilha’s version will be a thinly-veiled jab at the American government’s love affair with drones.
What do you think? Will this Robocop be a pale factory remake of the classic or will it be able to stand on its own two (robot) legs?
Robocop will be in cinemas 7 February 2014
