SDCC 13: ROBOCOP Comic Con Trailer Description and Reactions


Last night, the first official footage from the 2014 reboot was shown at Comic Con. Although no footage has come online as of yet, a description has made its way online courtesy of The footage was met with mixed reactions from watchers which can be read below.

Panning over shots of Detroit, the trailer launches into footage of Sellers saying that Americans “want a machine with a conscience.”

Cut to shots of Alex Murphy with his family before he becomes RoboCop, followed by a shot of what looks like a car bomb that injures him seriously enough to become RoboCop.

We got a brief shot of Gary Oldman, who will apparently be one of the scientists who made RoboCop happen, telling Alex Murphy’s wife that otherwise, her husband would be a vegetable for the rest of his life.

Cut to RoboCop in action (black armor), fighting gun-toting bad guys and riding a motorcycle thorugh a hail of gunfire. We also see that Abbie Cornish, who plays RoboCop’s wife, appears to be the emotional core of the show, trying to “reach” her husband when his humanity seems gone. That she apparently cheats on him could be an interesting beat in the story.










A trailer may appear online before the convention is up. Stay tuned for more.
