Paul Verhoven’s 1987 neo-noir classic RoboCop is one of our all-time favorite movies. Even the mediocre rehash from earlier this year can do nothing to tarnish that memory. (Some people enjoyed that movie, which I just don’t get. While it’s not the worst movie I’ve ever seen, not even the worst remake of a Verhoeven movies—that honor goes to Total Recall—it’s just bland and doesn’t bring anything new to the party.) That’s why a book like RoboCop: The Definitive History is right up our alley, and here are a few quick glimpses at what lies inside the cover.
The book by Calum Waddell hit bookstores yesterday, but before you rush out and buy it (and by that I most likely mean open another browser window and order it from Amazon), take a moment to check out these photos that come from Badass Digest. They show a variety of behind the scenes images from across the history of the franchise, from Verhoeven on set all the way up to concept art from the new installment.
