Unlike pretty much every other adult who is my age and gender, I'm not intrinsically against the remake of 1987s Robocop with a gentler rating and less manic humour. And it's probably precisely that kind of demographic (plus kids) that this movie is after, and, which this premiere was for. (That said, I'm not sure I'll like it any more than the original, of which I wasn't too much of a fan).
Still, if nothing else, the soundtrack/score by Pedro Bromfman sounds like the kind of music I want when I'm personally tearing a city to the ground, which is always pleasant accompaniment to a dark, rainy and somewhat cold evening for a London world premiere. And I'd never photographed Abbie Cornish before! Here's how it went down.
So...say what you will about its likely artistic (?) merit, that was pretty major, and the walk back to the office thence the station left me with the pounding instrumental score rolling around my brain, making London feel like the most dangerous parts of Detroit or Syria, lacking only explosions and helicopter gunships. Assuming this movie remains primarly based in the world of fiction, there's another premiere in London tomorrow... so until then!
It's another one for the Archive of Movie Premieres
