So a lot of people got pretty excited over the weekend when set pics dropped from the upcoming "RoboCop" giving a first look at Joel Kinnaman in his crime fighting gear. Lots of people waved their digital arms in the air and furrowed their virtual eyebrows that the remake would dare to try and do some things different. Anyway, while geeks come down from their heart palpitations, another piece of ephemera has made its way online.

teaser poster of sorts, first unveiled this summer at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, has dropped in a crisper and cleaner version. It's basically a closer look at the suit that has everyone talking that apparently features some red detailing. SO HOT. But other than that, it tells you its coming next summer, which we already knew.
Currently shooting in Toronto, directed by Jose Padilha and featuring a great cast including Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Abbie Cornish, Jennifer Ehle, Michael K.Williams and Marianne Jean-Baptiste, "RoboCop" opens on August 9th. [Cine1 via MTV]
