“Dead or alive, you’re coming with me.” The first trailer for José Padilha‘s remake of Robocop is finally here. Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and Abbie Cornish, it’s scheduled for release February 7. Check it out below.
Head to Apple Trailers for the full HD trailer. Here’s an embed.
This trailer is quite different from the footage that screened at Comic-Con. That was a bit more focused on the social and political aspects of the film, which are just touched upon here. Right out of the gate it seems MGM and Sony are hell bent on showing that the main idea of the franchise – a man fused with a machine – is here and results in tons of action.
The LA Times also posted a bunch of new stills from the film, some of which are different from above.
Here’s the official plot synopsis. What do you think of your first look at Robocop?
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.
