Joel Kinnaman Covers 'August Man Malaysia' February 2014


Joel Kinnaman suits up on the cover of August Man Malaysia‘s February 2014 issue.

Here is what the 34-year-old Robocop actor had to share with the mag:

On his take on movies being remade
: “I think it’s part of the human tradition to go back to our favorite stories, which we continuously do in the theatre. I have seen four different Hamlets and they all gave me something different. So, I think there is value in retelling old stories if you have a great idea of what that concept could be used for in today’s world. And I think we did.”

On the differences between the new and old Robocop movies
: “Different to the original, in our movie you can still see my face until I go into combat mode because then there is a visor that comes down. So far the dramatic scenes it was possible to connect with my co actors on a deeper level.”


On working with Abbie Cornish: “She was an actress that I was unfamiliar with, but I couldn’t be happier with how it’s gone for us. Abbie brought an emotional truth and rawness that helped to portray the loss they go through as a family.”
