First ‘RoboCop’ Trailer Arrives

Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for RoboCop, director José Padilha’s much-discussed remake of the 1987 sci-fi action film by Paul Verhoeven.

In this version, which opens Feb. 7, Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) stars as Alex Murphy, a Detroit cop whose injury in the line of duty provides OmniCorp with the opportunity to create a cyborg police officer. RoboCop also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Samuel L. Jackson.

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.

    IMPRESSIVE!

    I’d say it’s worth a watch.

    Cool.

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooring.

    I would not buy that for a dollar. :)

    I dunno… I preferred the tragedy associated with the first one in which he had lost his humanity, but was slowly reacquiring it. This version seems to have him retaining his memory and personality – more Michael Bay, less Verhoeven.

    Still, I will likely check it out if it’s a slow week at the cinemas. I think it’ll be next year’s RIPD though.

    That actually looks like a good reboot. Just wish they had kept him in silver the whole time.

  • Statham

    So in other words, they removed all the endearing clunkiness, made him a fast-moving, slick-looking cyborg, and basically dissed the old film’s classic silver look. Nice.

    what made the original so great is that it was completely loaded with social and political satire. remakes are bad enough, as is. even worse when the director barely understands the film he is remaking. no one can top Verhoeven. the fuck outta here, Hollywood.

    I agree. I prefer him in the modernized sleek silver look. A nod to the classic RoboCop with touches that still made him familiar. The all black version just looks like another Hollywood body armor suit (like the one from first “G.I. Joe” feature).

    Nevertheless, there are little touches of brilliance in the execution (though hated Sam Jackson’s out there salesman look) so I’ll definitely check it out on the big screen when it comes out.
