There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding Columbia Pictures and MGM’s RoboCop remake over the past year or so, but now we have a much better idea of what’s in store come February when Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) takes on the role of the part man, part machine, all cop thanks to the very first trailer for director Jose Padilha’s (Elite Squad) reimagining of the 1987 cult classic. 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. 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.“
