While fans are still awaiting the first official look at Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop in the upcoming reboot from MGM and director Jose Padilha, there have been plenty of photos snapped on the set.
Here are a few more from NewsCom posted on sites like Comic Book Movie and Collider. These images not only show off star Joel Kinnaman in the Robo armor, but also co-stars Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish and Kenneth Michael Williams.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Currently shooting, RoboCop also stars Jay Baruchel and Jackie Earle Haley. The film opens Aug. 9, 2013
