First Clip From the New ROBOCOP Released

Posted on January 16, 2014 at 10:47 am by Amanda Andonian

Yesterday, the first clip from the upcoming reboot of RoboCop hit the Internets, and it’s been met with mixed feelings. Justin’s certainly made no bones about the fact that he’s incredibly excited for this to come out; so while some hardcore fans of the original will never be happy, past trailers and the clip below indicate that it will still be an insanely action-packed movie.

Well there’s plenty of shooting! In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what RoboCop is about, here’s the synopsis:

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.

RoboCop stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. Jackson. It opens in theaters on February 12.
