That could have been worse. It seemed kinda pointless, I don't see any improvement over the original.

I think the word I'm looking for to best describe that trailer is "meh".

I'm happy to see Michael Keaton is in a new movie, but I don't have a good feeling about this one.

If this movie is PG-13 as I originally heard, then it's an instant fail.

Glad they did away with the transparent helmet bullshit.

This trailer and the PG-13 rating, makes me a sad panda.

Rental at best. Looks mildly interesting but entirely unnecessary.

Honestly, that came across to me much better than I expected it would. I'm kind of looking forward to this a bit now, so whoever put that trailer together earned their pay.

Definitely seems to have a more serious vibe, from what we see here. I didn't get any sense of the wacky "buy that for a dollar" or "6000 SUX" type schtick. Keaton kibitzing the design of the suit and asking for tactical black was about as close to that as I got out of this, but right now I think that's okay. That wackyness worked for the 80's, not so sure it'll click as easily with today's audiences.

As for the Rating... eh. PG-13 will pretty much get me whatever I want to see out of Robocop, so not having a hard "R" isn't an instant deal-breaker or anything.

Completely agree. Loved the original and this looks good. I guess I'm just stupid because I don't prejudge a movie based on it's rating.

Wow, I expected that to look far worse. Glad they kept the silver suit in there for at least part of the movie.

That seemed pretty cool, but my money is still on Orc Wars- looking totally awesome!

I do when it's Robocop and they're making it PG-13.

Guess I can look forward to the LEGO Robocop and the Nickelodeon Animated Adventures of Robocop.

Oh can't forget the action figures and Happy Meal toys.

Redbox rental seems appropriate. I don't see why this was remade apart from the fact that Hollywood is terrible with coming up with original ideas. This wasn't offensive, I guess the trailer just did nothing for me.

At least some of the casting is impressive.
