RoboCop is Back (and in Black) in First Trailer

Is it me or is RoboCop a bit too, I dunno, plastic-y? I could be wrong, of course. I like the new back-in-black look, though he seems to switch between the silver and black throughout the trailer, but hey, what do I know, maybe I’m seeing things. Get your first look at director José Padilha’s “RoboCop” reboot below and let me know what you think. Would YOU buy this for a dollar?

By the way, I notice a very noticeable lack of — I dunno what you would call it — satire? Remember how all the “RoboCop” movies were constantly filled with satirical commercials and TV shows in-between the story? I don’t see any of that here. Of course, it’s just a trailer, so…

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. Jackson.

The law arrives next year, February 7th, 2014.

    Yeah, doesn’t look like it’s got much in the way of dark humor, but the original’s trailer made it look pretty straightforward too:

    I just want it to be hard R, but since the shotgun execution doesn’t seem to happen and considering how slick and effects-heavy it looks, I get the feeling we’re going to get “Total Recall-ed”. At least it looks like the story’s going to diverge from the original

  • Juggernaut

    Looks pretty bad ass! I wish they would have left him in the chrome but atleast there is a cameo of the original look. I’m in.

    • Dedpool

      It looks like a little more than a cameo. We get what looks like his original look (though streamlined), and then an updated version of that, and then the all black one.

  • Dedpool

    Looks good! Like not bad at all. Thing is this is a remkae but the director has said this is not a true remake. We may get homages to the original but it’s a different beast all together. He has gone on record saying “He’s not remaking the original because it’s perfect the way it is.” He’s bringing the concept forward into this generation, but telling a slightly different version of the story. I’m looking forward to it. And I didn’t hate the Total Recall remake either. There were just enough nods to the original and it told a fun crazy action sci-fi story. WHat I DIDN’T like was the way they wasted having Bryan Cranston in it.

  • Dedpool

    Also really liking the human element to this. ANd how they’re doing Man vs Machine more.

    • schnydz

      Yeah, it seems they are digging a little deeper into the whole control plot. kwel

  • Dedpool

    And hell yeah I’d by that for a dollar!!! LMAO

    • Aegon the Conqueror

      You guys can watch movies for a dollar? Da fuq!

      Our’s cost anything fron 3-7 dollars!!!!

  • dman500

    i was skeptical when i first heard about the reboot, but i am now optimistic. i love that he still has the robot voice…dead or alive, you’re coming with me.

  • fsdfsf

    Just Fail…

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    I liked this, looks pretty badass! The black suit is much better imo.
