Like it or loathe it the Hollywood reboot machine is alive and well and this time it’s the turn of Robocop. Almost 16 years after the original movie blasted its way on to the big screen the first trailer for José Padilha’s brave reimagining was met with the usual chorus of complaints from fans lamenting the decision to resurrect one of the all time great science fiction heroes for a new generation. Starring relative unknown Joel Kinnaman in the role made famous by Peter Weller, Robocop 2014 sees all round good guy and straight laced cop Alex Murphy severely injured in the line of duty and harvested for parts to become Robocop the so-called future of law enforcement.
Fans of the 1980’s action movie “Robocop” are in for a real treat when the rebooted version of the film hits theaters in February 2014.
RoboCop (2014) – Official Trailer
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.Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment
