Behind-The-Scenes: Creating The New “RoboCop” Suits

April 23, 20140 Comments

Check out this pretty awesome video that takes you behind-the-scenes with Legacy Effects (formerly Stan Winston Studios) who were tasked with designing and creating the new RoboCop suit, piece by piece.

Legacy Effects is often tasked with taking a virtual design and making it work in the real world. Never was this more the case than with ROBOCOP: How do you make a skin-tight suit that has to flex and move but also behave like a bulletproof suit of armor? Go behind the scenes with the Legacy team as they make the robotics of Robocop a reality.

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.”

The remake was directed by José Padilha and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, and Samuel L. Jackson.

The remake of RoboCop will hit Blu-ray on June 3rd, 2014.
