Normally when the Internet brings us grainy cell-phone footage of a police officer in action, it's only a matter of time before Al Sharpton has to get involved. But the good reverend can rest easy, because this isn't a case of police brutality. It's footage of Judge DreddRoboCop riding a motorcycle through the mean streets of Vancouver. But don't worry. I'm sure there will be lots of satisfying police brutality in the finished product.

Joel Kinnaman stars as the titular RoboCop, an officer of the law who is brought back from the dead in order to fight crime as a cyborg. As mentioned above, the film is being shot in Canada, which I assume means Hollywood is repackaging the film as RoboMounty for the lucrative Canadian market. Either that, or it's cheaper to film in Canada as opposed to California. Either way, I hope they bring back Eric Forman's dad, but I know they won't.
