Robocop returns to our screens for the first time since 1987 with an updated remake of the much-loved classic. At the helm is Brazilian director José Padilha, famous for his Elite Squad movies - and he's put his own spin on the film.

We spoke to José ahead of the release of the film to get more clarity over the themes and aims he was trying to project - and we finally find out why the new Robocop changed colour from the classic grey to black.
