Jos Padilha: Social Media Interview

The RoboCop remake has been, it's fair to say, a bit of a hot topic amongst fans of the original.

Our review gives it four stars (along with a couple of caveats) , but we thought we'd sit down with the director himself, Mr Jose Padilha, to pick his brains on all your burning questions (sourced from Total Film's Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages).

Is he sick to death of people prejuding his movie before they've even seen it? Was he worried about upsetting fans of the original? Why does RoboCop have a human hand in the new movie? Did the studio force him to tone down the violence?

All those and many more are answered directly below, straight from the director's mouth.

RoboCop is in UK cinemas 7 February 2014.
