Even though a lot of the RoboCop materials don’t click with me, there’s still the one theatrical trailer that really hits a home run with my emotions. And while nothing else has been as good as the one that really sells the film’s vision, we keep carousing through new clips and TV spots galore.
Here’s a new commercial that speaks to the effect that “Murphy” wants to be a bigger than a hero.
Sony’s forthcoming reboot stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Michael Keaton, and Aimee Garcia.
In theaters February 12, 2014, “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.“
