Ya know what? I don’t care what anyone says. I’m looking forward to the new ROBOCOP film!! Of course I love the original 1987 film, but this is definitely a movie that could use an upgrade. Technology and the political/social landscaped have change so much that there’s much to exploit in this update. And I also think the new suit design looks fantastic!! Now we get to see a few new posters and two new trailers!!
The new ROBOCOP is directed by José Padilha, written by Michael Miner, Edward Neumeier, Nick Schenk, David Self, James Vanderbilt, and Joshua Zetumer (yeah I know, scary), and stars Joel Kinnaman, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Michael Keaton, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Abbie Cornish, Aimee Garcia, and Jackie Earle Haley. Check out the plot crunch:
In RoboCop the year is 2029, and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center 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 utilizes its 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.

The new ROBOCOP is set to drop on February 12, 2014.
