We’ve got the latest international trailer for RoboCop for your enjoyment and there’s a few new scenes in it. While overall most of it has been seen before in previous trailers there’s some action that you’ll enjoy here. While not as great as the last trailer, this one was still an improvement over the first and second ones that were released.
In the upcoming ‘RoboCop’ reboot we’re going to once again see Alex Murphy as a patriotic police officer who falls in the line of duty. Only they can’t keep a good man down! OmniCorp has decided they can rebuild him! They have the technology! They have the capability to build the world’s first… RoboCop. Ahem. That may have gone a little too ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’ there for a moment. When rebuilding hi,. however, the more I see the more I think his first look will be that of the original RoboCop before Keaton’s character decides to modernize him to the look we’ll be seeing throughout the film.
I really want ‘Robocop’ to be good. I love the actors, I love some of the hinted changes they are making, I just hate reboots. Of all of the announced reboots, this I feel has the most success to be a great film but I just worry it’ll end up like all of the others.
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.
So do Keaton’s styling requests for ‘RoboCop’ work for you in the final product? Are you enjoying what you’re seeing so far for the reboot or are you thinking that Hollywood needs to go back to being creative?
‘Robocop’ stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldmann, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Abbie Cornish and Jackie Earle Haley and will be in theaters on February 7th, 2014.
