The much-anticipated ( for varying reasons) trailer for the Robocop remake is here and to be honest it looks pretty solid. Casting Joel Kinnaman was a bold choice, but I think will pay off. The guy has some serious acting chops ( We’ll just try to forget about The Darkest Hour) give The Killing a watch to see what I mean. I’m not to familiar with Jose Padliha directing work, but the trailer is giving off a cool vibe and it’s a movie about a cyborg that shoots criminals. It would be pretty hard to mess this one up. Robocop is slated for February, 2014 release.
PLOT: 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.
