We've previously seen a batch of photos from the Toronto shoot for the Robocop reboot and now video footage has surfaced as well.
Below you can check out over two minutes of footage featuring the new Robocop motorcycle.
We see it has the same red light that the Robocop visor has; in addition, we see that Robocop's left hand is normal, as previously seen in pics.
There hasn't been confirmation if there will be CGI enhancements to either the new suit or the bike, but it has been rumored that Robocop seemingly "transforms."
Maybe the bike becomes some big mechanized weapon which Robcop wields, because I'm not sure how the "transforming" part will go over with audiences.
Still, the cast is promising and I am hopeful the movie will turn out well.
Robocop has a recently announced new release date of February 7th, 2014.
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.
