RoboCop, A Remake of the Classic 1987 Sci-Fi Action Film About a Police Officer Turned Cyborg

The first action-packed trailer for RoboCop — the 2014 remake of the classic 1987 film — has been released on Apple’s iTunes. The film is directed by José Padilha and stars Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop with a strong supporting cast that includes Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Keaton. RoboCop is expected to hit theaters on February 7th, 2014.

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.
