After more than two years of talk, the first trailer is out for Jose Padilha’s RoboCop. While I can’t say that I love what I saw in the firs trailer, it looks better than what the pics on line have led us to believe.
Check it out for yourself and make up your own minds about it. Would you buy that for a dollar?
RoboCop opens February 7, 2014.
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.
