Columbia Pictures and MGM have released the first trailer for their RoboCop reboot. The movie is directed by Jose Padilha and has a pretty cool ensemble featuring Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jackie Earle Haley.
Kinnaman, who plays Alex Murphy/RoboCop, has said that this film will be a lot more realistic than the ’87 original, and will better explore the time between when Alex Murphy is injured and when he becomes RoboCop.
Watch the new RoboCop trailer below:
In the film, the year is 2028 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 (Kinnaman) 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.
RoboCop will be released February 7, 2014.
