If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I have to say, as much as I love the original, I am kind of excited for the 'Robocop' remake. Truth be told, much of it comes from hearing director Jose Padilha talk about his fascinating vision for the new film. Despite the fact that we're still miles and miles from the release of this remake, MGM is wasting no time in starting their viral marketing campaign. Over at a site called Omnicorp.com, this fake ad recently turned up featuring a very familiar combination of letters and numerals. Are we to assume this is in fact what the new ED-209will look like? If so, I like that they've retained much of the design of the original; the alterations in concept aren't sacrilegious if you ask me. Take a look..
In addition, the site has also pieced together this fake commercial promoting all of OmniCorp's various new products...including a veiled glimpse at their most exciting upcoming tech project, the RC 2000, involving a cross between human resources and robotic engineering. Wonder what that could be. Give it a watch below...
