First Trailer For The ROBOCOP Reboot Hits
The first trailer for the Robocop reboot directed by Jose Padilha has hit. The movie was supposed to come out last month, but it was recently pushed back to a February 2014 release. The trailer gives us a great look at what Paddilha and company have in store and how the modern reinvention will differ from the original. It looks like we’ll get at least two different suits for the titular hero as well. The black version was heavily criticized when set photos found their way online last year, but the silver suit Alex Murphy starts out with seems like a good update to the 1980s original. You can check out the full trailer below as well as some new stills posted by the LA Times. Robocop stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Abbie Cornish, and Jay Baruchel. It is currently scheduled for a February 7, 2014 release. What do you think of our first look at the reboot?
In “RoboCop,” the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
