A few days ago we got the first trailer for the new version of Robocop, and now that’s been followed up by a poster, which harks back to the original and the classic quote, ‘Your move, creep.’
Here’s the official plot synopsis: ‘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.’
Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and Abbie Cornish co-star, with Jose Padhila directing. It’ll be in cinemas next February.
