While I’m absolutely intrigued by the footage in the trailer premiere, the first stills selected by MGM and Columbia Pictures for their RoboCop reboot could have been a bit more action-packed. Still, we get a pair of looks at Joel Kinnaman in various RoboCop armor, as well as a fancy Samuel L. Jackson, co-star Abbie Cornish, and a shot of Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton in a presumably argumentative scene.
The Jose Padilha-directed film reboots in theaters February 7, 2014.
“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.“
