First trailer for Jose Padilha’s RoboCop

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for Jose Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 modern classic RoboCop.

The film, like the original, follows the career of Detroit police officer Alex Murphy, who after been critically injured  in the line of duty is surgically repaired using military technology and becomes half robot/half cop.

Joel Kinnaman is in the lead, with Samuel L. Jackson as a media mogul, Michael Keaton an erratic CEO and Gary Oldman a conflicted scientist. The cast also includes Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, and Jackie Earle Haley.

RoboCop is out in Ireland on February 7th, 2014.

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.
