Jose Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop remake is just around the corner, and Imax is taking the opportunity to remind us with their own version of the film’s poster. The aesthetic is much more in tune with the 1987 original, even displaying the prime directives.
While we know the film won’t have the gore and perhaps the satire of the original, I’m holding out hope that it will be good on its own terms. I’ll find out when I see it!
Sony’s forthcoming reboot stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Michael Keaton, and Aimee Garcia.
