The new trailer for ROBOCOP is out!
It definitely looks very different from the 80′s classic. The previous iteration addressed the cynicism of the 1980′s perfectly. It was satire. It was bleak. It was brutal.
The new film isn’t going to be a remake that addresses the same themes, and I for one am sort of glad for that. I don’t think remakes need to try to tread the same ground as the original, mostly because they can’t.
Society has evolved and the zeitgeist has changed.
