‘Robocop’ Joel Kinnaman’s Mom Tried to Send Him to Therapy for Walking Like a Robot

Guests attacked from all angles on Feb. 5, hitting the BFI IMAX through its surrounding subterranean tunnels for the world bow of the “Robocop” reboot in London.

London’s city-wide Tube strike unknowingly enhanced the ambiance, with the shrill of police sirens oscillating around the venue from the surrounding chaos above.

The transport torture overhead turned Abbie Cornish into an impromptu bus spotter, her interview given an interlude of excited distraction, commenting: “Oh, look, it’s a bus! There’s not many people on it either!”

Helmer Jose Padilha, MGM’s Gary Barber and producers Eric Newman and Mark Abraham worked the black, droid-patrolled carpet, whilst seasoned carpet crawler Gary Oldman went rogue, turning his camera phone on the pro-shutterbugs, snapping the snappers for his own album.

Robocop himself, Joel Kinnaman, stalked the carpet and divulged what the metal suit was like to wear. “A bitch! It was uncomfortable and sweaty, it was difficult to go to the bathroom,” he said.

Fortunately Kinnaman was born to ‘bot. When asked how he’d perfected the signature Robocop moves, he mused, “I had it worked out when I was about 10 years old. Worked out to the degree that my mum, who’s a therapist, wanted me to go and see one of her colleagues because she couldn’t get me to stop walking like Robocop.”

Post pic, guests relocated riverside, arriving at Skylon bar for drinking and dancing. Sadly at no point did Kinnaman throw his robot shapes on the dance floor. Perhaps he retains those solely for the privacy of his own home, and of course, the big screen.
