Want to learn more about the half-man half-machine badass that serves justice in amazingly violent ways? You do? Then look no further than RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop. The upcoming documentary delves into what went into making the iconic action movie.
In 1987, Dutch director Paul Verhoeven surprised audiences and re-defined the science fiction genre with his bloody and violent action movie RoboCop. If you're a fan of 80's action or even if you're not, you'll find RoboDoc fascinating. The behind the scenes history of the Peter Weller-starring RoboCop is revealed in the new documentary.
The only other machine that can bring up pop culture nostalgia like RoboCop is The Terminator. Since that franchise is getting another sequel starring the original Sarah Connor, Linda Hamilton, we can wait.
But since RoboCop's last outing was in 2014'3 blasphemous PG-13 rate RoboCop, we are eager to get back into the origins of the R-rated movie that gave us the iconic character. The 2014 film starred Joel Kinnaman of "Altered Carbo" fame as the half-man half-machine protector of Detroit.
A new trailer for the film has just been released in which RoboCop weapons master Randy Moore recalls that Verhoeven's mantra was "Blood! I want more f—ing blood!" Actor Paul McCrane also remembers "a wall of flame coming straight at me," and fellow cast member Kenny Page claims, "They were putting more squibs in my body than anyone in film history."
RoboDoc is directed by Chris Griffiths. You can watch the trailer here:
