This is definitely a much better trailer for José Padilha’s “RoboCop” reboot, though for some reason the Samuel L. Jackson moments at the beginning feels a little off to me. Maybe it’s the awful wig. There’s not a lot to complain about the rest of the trailer, though. I get the sneaking suspicion RoboCop will start out in black before returning to his familiar steel-gray later in the movie (and for the rest of the series).
Check out a second trailer for “RoboCop”. Now who wouldn’t this bad boy walking their streets? Or, er, riding around on their roads?
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, Jay Baruchel, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Michael Kenneth Williams.
