Joel Kinnaman discusses “uncomfortable” RoboCop suit

Exclusive: “I felt awkward and embarrassed”

In issue 214 of Total Film magazine, we chat with the new RoboCop himself, aka The Killing's Joel Kinnaman.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad, Kinnaman reveals that stepping into the shoes (and armour) of former RoboCop Peter Weller was even more difficult than we'd imagined.

“It was very uncomfortable," the Swedish-American star says of RoboCop's new body armour, designed by Oscar-nominated costume designer April Ferry.

"I'm not wearing much under the suit... you feel naked. Also, when the cameras weren't rolling, I [felt] awkward and embarrassed. It was hard to move my head and everything was making my back ache. I used that awkwardness because that's what Murphy would've felt, times a thousand."

Set in 2028, RoboCop follows copper Alex Murphy (Kinnaman), who's injured doing his job and transformed into a bionic police officer with a suit to make even Iron Man jealous.

RoboCop opens in the UK on 7 February 2014.

      Bet it felt like a Saville Row suit compared to Weller's armour.

      He ought to feel "awkward and embarrassed." This is a completely pointless and unwanted (by me, at least) remake which shouldn't exist.

      I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do,..WWW.JUMP85.COM
