New images from Robocop featuring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, and Michael Keaton
A few new pictures from ROBOCOP have surfaced over at Digital Spy, and while there isn't anything too exciting in the images below (RoboCop on his motorcycle, Gary Oldman and Jackie Earle Haley sitting around, Michael Keaton clapping), they do serve as a reminder that the Jose Padilha film will be rolling into theaters in the near future.
Take a look:
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.
ROBOCOP isn't anywhere near the top of my list of most anticipated films of 2014, however I still think it could be an entertaining film. Will it be as awesome as the original? Doubtful, but hopefully the new movie won't be as bad as other recent remakes like TOTAL RECALL.
ROBOCOP will be released on February 12, 2014.
