New ROBOCOP Images; New Trailer to Debut on Thursday

Posted on November 4, 2013 at 2:39 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop has a tough field to hoe. Where Paul Verhoeven‘s original gleefully fired off satire and explosive action, Padilha seems to be trying to keep the satire (Samuel L. Jackson‘s Bill O’Reilly-esque pundit) while maintaining a slightly serious tact by commenting on drone warfare and exploring questions of free will. That’s a lot to pull off when your protagonist is a seemingly unfeeling cyborg, but I’m really hoping he hits it out of the park. We’ll get to see a little more of the film when a new trailer is released on Thursday, but in the meantime, there are new images showing off Jackson’s character, Pat Novak, as well as Liz Kline (Jennifer Ehle), Maddox (Jackie Earle Haley), and Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman).

Be sure to come back Thursday when the new trailer is released.  The film also stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, and Michael Keaton. RoboCop opens on February 12, 2014.

Official synopsis;

In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre 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 utilises 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.
