The RoboCop remake trailer is finally here and has some pretty big stars attached to it. Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson star alongside the main cast of Joel Kinnaman, Douglas Urbanski, Abbie Cornish. The armor is now black even though he started off with the classic armor. I saw the trailer but for the most part it looks good but that is expected, I did not see a WOW moment however. Basically they stayed very close to the source material which is great. I loved the original RoboCop and to see that they are basically updating the actors, visual effects and some elements of the story are very welcomed. I do not feel the black armor yet but maybe it will grow on me.
