We may all be getting primed for the upcoming RoboCop reboot from Jose Padilha, but it'd be nothing without the name recognition of the 1987 original. So here's a blast from the past—want to go behind the scenes and see what original star Peter Weller was up to during filming?

More than five minutes of vintage Entertainment Tonight footage has surfaced of Peter Weller guiding a camera crew around the set, showing off everything from some stunt scene shots to a great interview about why the film isn't just another '80s sci-fi flick.

The clip also shows how insanely cumbersome it was to get into that robo-suit. With all the pure-CGI action films coming out these days, it's great to see a throwback to the days of good old-fashioned filmmaking.

Check out the video below:

The RoboCop reboot is slated to open in 2014.
