Robocop Attacked By Protesters In New Set Photos
These protest signs might be the most interesting thing I've seen from this Robocop production so far, suggesting that the half-human, half-robot, all-cop character is operating in a world not dissimilar to our own, where a lot of people are out of work and weird religious overtones can work their way into any protest. Of course, this is also a world in which Michael Keaton plays the evil head of a corporation-- you can see him in one of those images above-- so I guess it's not that much like our world.
Despite reports of some bumps in the production process, including a scathing script review and word that director Padilha is miserable on the set, the Robocop remake seems to be chugging along toward its August 9 release date next year. When Sony set that date it seemed like a good sign for both Robocop and its Total Recall remake, two new spins on 80s classics that could dominate the late-summer box office. But Total Recall didn't pan out at all, making just $58 million domestically. Will Robocop be able to avoid the same fate?
