Latest RoboCop Trailer Stomps Online
Is this the future of American justice?

20 November 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: StudioCanal

When you put a man in a machine, does one control the other? And how will our complicated relationship with technology evolve in the future? Those are just two of the questions asked by the new take on RoboCop, which has just put a new trailer online. 

With this latest promo, Team RoboCop is focusing at least initially on the emotional side of Joel Kinnaman’s Alex Murphy. We get to hear the former undercover cop’s initial confusion at waking up after nearly dying in a car bombing. It turns out he’s not paralysed: he’s been turned into a cyborg by monolithic, profit-hungry company OmniCorp.

Looking for a way to get its military / law enforcement droids onto American soil, the executives decide to turn Murphy’s misfortune into an robo-tunity, and create RoboCop, described by Samuel L. Jackson’s media mogul Pat Novak as “the future of American justice…” Of course, it’s not that simple. 

Naturally, there are the usual action set pieces and moments of Murphy confronting his humanity, but the big question that still remains is whether this remake can overcome the naysayers. We’ll find out when RoboCop hits on February 7.

RE: the Robocop trailers: crap to good to crap again
You make an excelent point. More than one. The one thing I disagree with you is on this one: L: jobloffski The new film very obviously links in to the notion of drones on the streets and as such it probably 'braver' than the original because it asks people to look not too far into the future into a world that is actually coming soon, if everybody decides to let it. For Hollywood, this practically constitutes a political campaign. ote] The original Robocop was highly critical of co More

A walking dildo? Stop Motion til I die!
I'm trying to be optimistic, really I am. I mean big guns like Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton would make you think there must be a half decent script, right?. And Kinnaman, well, acting dynamite (hint of slight sarcasm). Was Timothy Olyphant busy?? I won't lie, I'm a lover of the original, so I'm hopin for more Dredd than Total Recall on the reboot front on this one. I'm not feeling any humour, any in your face shocks, the suit is from Fifty Shades Of grey. The hand, what's with the hand? The bi More

RE: Dead or alive?
I loved the the original Robocop back in the day. Recently there were a bunch of renweals that REALLY sucked (take Total Recall as an example) and were by far inferior to the originals. Hopefully the new robocop will not ruin my childhood classic. More

RE: the Robocop trailers: crap to good to crap again
L: jobloffski Like the trailer. Not so hot on the jumping, However, will watch the film because it looks like it will be a good movie. I like the original movie. I don't expect the new film to be the same film. The original film still exists. The new film very obviously links in to the notion of drones on the streets and as such it probably 'braver' than the original because it asks people to look not too far into the future into a world that is actually coming soon, if everybody More
