New Robocop Clip Crashes In
Featuring the Chairman of the Circuit Board

If you thought the future of law enforcement was PC Plod on a hoverjet or Dixon Of Soylent Green - and, in fairness, you probably didn't - think again. It's the man / 'bot hybrid making his psychologically painful transition from Alex Murphy into RoboCop in this new clip from the movie.



RoboCop (and his human alter ego) is played by Joel Kinnaman, with Abbie Cornish playing his wife, Clara Murphy, and Gary Oldman is Dr. Dennett Norton, the brainiac behind his technologically advanced super-lawman. Frank Sinatra plays himself.

The new-look RoboCop finds us in the year 2028, with multinational conglomerate OmniCorp (look out for Michael Keaton as CEO Raymond Sellar in the movie's trailer) at the centre 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 Murphy – 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. Coming Soon has spotted a new poster with the man... well, robo-man, strutting his stuff.

With Elite Squad man José Padilha behind the camera, the new-look RoboCop will arrive in these parts - in normal cinemas and IMAX ones, as that poster above indicates - and start apprehending perps from February 7.
