After months of behind-the-scenes stills of Joel Kinnaman as ROBOCOP, we now finally have a trailer that gives us a fantastic look at just what to expect from the remake. If you didn't like the black suit before, you're probably going to hate it even more now. Not so much because it looks bad but mostly because they actually start Kinnaman out with the more traditional old school ROBOCOP look that we all know and love — and it actually looks kind of badass. Then, half way through the trailer they change it to a more "tactical" look and that's where it lost me. The trailer isn't half bad and I think Kinnaman looks pretty solid in the role so I'm still very much on the fence with this one. Check it out below!
In ROBOCOP, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilises their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.
Directed by Jose Padilha, ROBOCOP stars Joel Kinnaman as the title character, Gary Oldman as the scientist who creates ROBOCOP, and Samuel L. Jackson as media mogul Pat Novak. Right now the film is eyeing a Feb. 7, 2014 release.
