Wanna know how Alex Murphy goes from cop to robot? Find out in José Padilha’s “RoboCop” reboot when it opens next year. Until then, check out a new UK trailer for the movie, which takes a more contemplative approach than previous trailers by taking us through Murphy’s transformation. Then, of course, everything just sorta blows the crap up in the last thirty seconds or so. I mean, this is a sci-fi action movie, after all.
Good times, good times.
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 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 (Kinnaman) 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.
Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
The Murph is back next year February 12, 2014.
