The trailer for the new RoboCop movie looks even cooler with cardboard effects

RoboCop is one of the all-time greats of science fiction. It's cruel, brutally honest, action-packed, in short -- I'd buy that for a dollar.

So, the upcoming remake, while something we'll probably all go see, is met with the knowledge that it has a tough row to hoe in terms of matching the raw, visceral intensity of the original. And part of the concern comes from how shiny and clean the whole affair looks.

You know what fixes that?


And that might be why this low-fi re-creation of the 2014 RoboCop trailer feels more in keeping with the original than the actual movie has, so far.

Am I crazy, or is that homebrew costume somehow better than the one they actually made?
