Coming Soon has just posted pictures of Joel Kinnaman wearing the updated RoboCop suit from the set of director Jose Padilha’s remake of the legendary sci-fi franchise. It certainly has a similar design to the original, but it is much sleeker than its bulky ‘80s counterpart. Also, thankfully, it looks like this costume will be completely practical, as opposed to being a digital CGI creation.
What we don’t know is if this will be the only armor used on the character throughout the film, or if he will continue to make updates to his suit as the story progresses like the Iron Man series. Either way, it's certainly nowhere near as bad as it could have been. Check out the photos below.
RoboCop will hit theaters on August 9, 2013.
