RoboCop Set Pictures

So yeah. Put on your Bad Idea Jeans, we’re about to delve right back into the world of the “RoboCop” remake. With a summer '13 release date slotted, the film is currently shooting in Toronto, and with it comes the very first on-set pics of a sexy, sleek, futuristic robot cop formerly identified as Officer Alex Murphy.

As seen here at Coming Soon, the pics from the first day of shooting showcase a much more streamlined design, less bulky and more accommodating for casual body movement. The second pic looks like that visor will be removed, and we’ll have a greater chance to see star Joel Kinnaman’s adorable punum than we did Peter Weller’s in the Paul Verhoeven original from 1987. We're curious to see what the nerd reaction will be and are expecting a lot of "Look, it's the Guyver!" but we wouldn't be surprised at most people rolling their eyes and sighing. Black is the new black.

Of course, spy pics rarely look good, and in fact the RoboCop suit could possibly undergo a radical post-production CGI revision. These might even be preliminary suits -- who's to say RoboCop won't have a mid-film tech upgrade? Though the suit would look good under a Hawaiian shirt. Photoshoppers, get on that. 

"RoboCop," nonetheless, has a sterling cast that includes Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley and Michael K. Williams. You'll buy that for a dollar, in 3D, August 9th, 2013.
