Looks like they tried to copy the new emo douche version of Batman.

I can think of far worse - many of the designs from The 5th Element come to mind and that was a pretty fun movie in the end.

All I see is a series of interlocking body/machine armour plating; which makes sense from a practicality point of view. He wouldn't be the first to be an all-black robocop

How is this cinematic fail? His armor is black instead of silver, so what? The armor actually looks really cool.

If it were Batman.

I'm guessing there's going to be a lot of CGI overlayed on it ... hopefully.

-edit-

So apparently this image has been out there for over a month.

Image

Looks pretty similar to what came out in the last day, and I have to admit, it's not as bad as those blurry pics make it look.

That actually looks really badass. I like the more smoothed helmet from Roddy's pics, but that one looks better overall.

To be honest, I'm kind of mixed on this whole thing. I don't like that they changed his design, but that does look pretty sweet. Maybe if they used that for like a bad guy version of Robocop. But I don't think that should be Robocop himself.

Yes and no. As far as percentages go, it made back something like 1.12% of its budget, which is amazingly miniscule. Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist and A Troll in Central Park both made back a smaller percentage (0.84% and 0.3% in that order) but both cost less than half of Oogieloves. Zyzzyx Road, an indie film starring Kathrine Heigl, had a budget of about $1.2million, and had a box office draw of $30. Not thirty-million-dollars, thirty dollars total. Mars Needs Moms has the highest net loss, of over $136 million dollars. basically, it all depends on how you want to measure it.

That said, the Robocop remake being a cinematic fail is just Roddy jumping the gun because he doesn't like the new armor design.

Yes, maybe I should have specified. I didn't mean a fail financially (which I think it will be) but a FAIL creatively, or at least costume design wise. That thing is hideous.

I have to disagree I really like both of the designs I've seen so far.

I'm actually digging the new robocop. Kind of Iron Man-esque. I think Robocop has a large enough fan base to at least make a financial success.
And besides, everyone knows the Transformers trilogy is collectively the biggest cinematic flop, right? :michaelbay:

Commercially, all three are in the top 50 highest-grossing movies of all time. (DOTM itself earned just slightly less than the entire Indiana Jones trilogy combined, not counting Crystal Skull, but who does?) Critically, their Rotten Tomatoes scores (57%, 20%, 35%, in that order) average out to about 37%, which is bad, but far from the worst. (Alone in the Dark has a stellar 1%) So it kind of balances out for them. Critically disappointing, but far from the worst, but they made enough money off of it that they can afford to not care what the critics think.

In my defense, half the site still has its panties in a twist over the movies. It's pretty much a coin toss whether they're being serious or not at this point.

Nah, it's Batman with a bike helmet.

If you look closely, you can see details that would be cool, if painted metalic silver. Hopefully this is just some kind of a dress rehearsal to make sure everything is fit and functional for filming.

First off, there's already a thread for this.

Second, why is everyone getting so angry over the new suit? The new one actually looks really cool. It's not like the original was a masterpiece of costume design, it was intended, like the rest of the movie, to be one big parody of sci-fi action movies.
