If you’ve been breathlessly waiting for a remake of the 1987 film RoboCop, you’re finally in luck. The new trailer (above) shows just as much violence and drama as we expect from a RoboCop movie. Starring on-the-rise actor Joel Kinnaman as the title character, the film compensates by filling out the rest of the cast with Hollywood heavy-weights like Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Michael Keaton.
In the futuristic trailer, the world is plagued by drone strikes and constant crime. When Detective Alex Murphy (Kinnaman) suffers from life-threatening injuries sustained from a car explosion, Dr. Norton (Oldman) steps in to save his life. Meanwhile, Keaton and Jackson’s characters have already been planning to create a robot-human machine. Needless to say, Murphy’s accident proves to be the perfect opportunity to test this out, and when he wakes up, he is RoboCop. What Murphy doesn’t know is that the men that created him are also controlling him. The rest of the trailer showcases the age-old storyline of good guy fighting back against the bad guys. Oh, and there’s also a little romance and a ton explosive CGI violence thrown in for good measure.
RoboCop will be released on Feb. 7, 2014. Hopefully, these amazing actors and huge budget will make the film as great as the original. If not, we can always console ourselves with a marathon of the first, second, and third RoboCop movies.
