The latest trailer for the upcoming remake of Robocop hit the internet today and it has literally reignited my interest in this oft-delayed project. The film, which takes place in a near-future America run by big business, stars Joel Kinneman as the titual cyborg that rebels against his programming. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Micheal Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earl Haley and Jay Baruchel. Directed By Jose Padilla (Elite Squad, Secrets of The Tribe), Robocop lands in theaters just in time for Valentines Day on Feburary 12th, 2014
The official synposis is below:
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.
