With the recent troubles in Detroit, it’s kind of ironic that the premiere trailer for one of the Motor City’s greatest fictional heroes has arrived. The Robocop remake gets a visual, which provides purists a first glimpse of the film’s backstory and a new, more militaristic armor suit to go with it. The film is scheduled for a February release and stars Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Abbie Cornish.
Peep the trailer and film synopsis below:
“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.“
