In its time, Paul Verhoeven‘s sci-fi cop of the future RoboCop was a breakthrough in film making. The mix and man and machine, emotions with programming told a very poignant story the way only Verhoeven could tell it. Now we have a modern remake of the 1987 film big a big name cast including Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson. Check out the trailer below.
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.
