First clip from the RoboCop rebootIt seems like an age since we caught that first glimpse of Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) suited up in those first RoboCop set photos, but don’t have long to wait now until we find out whether director Jose Padilha’s (Elite Squad) remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 cult classic has been worth it. The reboot is due to hit cinemas in less than a month, and the first clip has now arrived online which sees Alex Murphy taking his new suit out for a field test. Check it out after the official synopsis….

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.
