Robocop film shoot takes over Harbord and Clinton

Posted by Staff / November 26, 2012

Robocop TorontoYesterday residents living near Harbord and Clinton got an up close look at the new Robocop movie that's been filming in Toronto this fall. Spencer Barclay, a local filmmaker and Robocop enthusiast, happened to be in the area and snapped some photos of the action. Street signs were changed, some futuristic cars made an appearance and a Robocop stuntman (above) weaved through the streets on his shiny futuristic bike. Check out all the photos on Barclay's blog.

But, wait, there's more! Check out this series of videos for an up close look at the shoot.

Robocop doesn't look much like a robot compared to the original one in the 1987 movie. Looks like the actor is wearing the Bat suit to me.

Don't know... Dredd remake stunk, so did Red Dawn, same with the Total Recall remake too.

Pictures and video in this story are great. I'm not knocking the author but movie remakes are not worth money to spend on anymore. For example, Looper was a great sci-fi but just wait, they'll to a remake of that too. Wished movie makers would stick to new, fresh scripts with original storylines. Remakes are simply of waste. Save your $$$.

The original Robotocop movies are on my top ten list of sci-fi movies. I hope this is great.

Totally nerdy, but it was cool to see some of the cars they were using there...they had a Subaru Dias (I think) and a 1st gen Toyota Mark X (why'd they import that car of all cars?), Fiat 500s/Elements/Accords/CR-Z all sporting body kits that cover the badges, and a few more....

I'm guessing Sam James is in the movie, why else would they shoot there?

They were in my 'hood (Danforth East) last week. Not sure if we should be happy to be a stand in for Detroit, at any time, let alone in a dystopic future...

I'm liking the bike he is riding. I'm sure they modified the body a bit but it does not look like a total custom bike. Very nice tho. Does anyone one which bike they used?

Toxic wastes are released into the atmosphere while processing the junk and
good quality companies take special care not to harm the
environment. Straight-Line Method of Calculating Fixed Asset Depreciation - How is fixed
asset depreciation calculated. Like many companies which
deal in nuts and bolts are very much dependent o these scrap cars as they prove out to be excellent source
of spare parts.
