Fun fact of the day for you: 2029, the year in which ROBOCOP takes place, is also an important date in a certain other sci-fi franchise involving men and machines.

“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.”

So basically this sounds like... Robocop.  More is sure to come as production continues to ramp up in preparation for the fall start date, so look for that here.  In the meantime, check out the sort-of-viral-campaign-related poster below!

Update: the poster was actually fan-made.  So well done to that fan for making something relatively cool, I suppose.
