If everything has gone to the original plan, the remake of Robocop would have already been and gone from cinema. However then is got pushed back until February 2014 (which to be honest doesn’t bode well, as February is a bit of a film dumping ground).
However new we can get our first proper look at Joel Kinnaman as the half-man, half-robot, who stars alongside Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and Abbie Cornish, with Jose Padhila directing. And to be honest, it doesn’t look too bad.
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.’
