Lock eyes with the official synopsis for Jose Padilha's RoboCop!

Yesterday came a fresh poster and status update from star Joel Kinnaman, and now, thanks to Comic-Con, we have an official synopsis for Jose Padilha's ROBOCOP remolding. Feel free to ferret out the deets below!

Scripted by Nick Schenk, James Vanderbilt and Josh Zetumer:

In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center 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 utilizes 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.

Sounds about right, ay? Good to see some techno-relevance thrown in, with the drones and whatnot. Of course, with Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish (below) and Hugh Laurie rounding out the cast, who the hell cares about the synopsis. This movie ought to be pretty badass right? Right!

ROBOCOP hits the pavement August 9, 2013.
