Jose Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 tech-noir classic RoboCop is almost here. Next week we’ll learn whether or not this worth our time, or a huge waste and another toothless remake of a movie we love. With the release date fast approaching we’re getting a rush of new RoboCop propaganda, including two new behind the scenes featurettes that dig into the technical and ethical ideas from the new film, and a video that catalogs all the faults and flaws of the original outing.
Yahoo debuted this two part look at the technology of RoboCop called “Man and Machine.” As with most looks behind the curtain, these videos are a mixture of footage from the movie and interviews with key members of the cast and crew. In addition to Padilha, you hear from stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Michael Keaton, and Jackie Earle Haley, as well as various producers and off-camera players.
