Posted on September 15, 2012 at 2:29 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson

Filming on director Jose Padilha‘s Robocop reboot started today in Toronto, and already the first images of Joel Kinnaman as the in the new Robocop armor have appeared online. Check out out the first glimpses below.  Keep in mind a lot of magic happens with lighting and cameras that cannot be duplicated with a cell phone camera.  So we will have to wait for the official images to surface before we can decalre the end of days, and burn the internet to the ground.

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. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.

    • I have a feeling that this iteration of Robocop will be a wise cracking human bad-ass who puts on the robo suit and transforms into Robocop.

      Looks fun. I'm curious to see if they leave the "human hand" or if something CGI is going to replace it.
