Following up on those two new groovy posters that we posted earlier today for José Padilha’s “RoboCop” reboot, check out six fightin’ clips from the upcoming sci-fi actioner, including Robo’s clash against those giant tank shooting things, the ED-209s. Yes, plural. Because this new RoboCop is badass like that.
You know what Robo’s targeting reminds me off? All those sci-fi movies where killer robots can’t shoot for crap. When you have computerized targeting, and a computer can process gazillions of data a second, how do you miss your target? I dunno, but this sci-fi movie conceit always bothered me. But hey, that’s just me.
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 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 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, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
Robo does what he do February 12th.
