‘RoboCop’ Trailer Hits the Web
It was bound to happen. RoboCop is next in line to get the reboot/remake treatment much like Total Recall did last year. Next year’s film is not looking to replicate the 1987 science fiction classic. It lacks the satire and themes of the original, but it looks to focus more on the human element of RoboCop, most notably free will. Check out the trailer and leave your comments below. Oh, and I forgot to mention that it’s rated PG-13.
Here’s a synopsis of the movie:
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.
RoboCop, directed by Jose Padiha and starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, Jackie Earle Haley, John Paul Ruttan, Miguel Ferrer, Jennifer Ehle, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Michael Kenneth Williams and Douglas Urbanski, arrives to theaters on February 7, 2014.
