The release of the ROBOCOP trailer last week brought with it a wave of hatred not seen since they announced Michael Keaton as Batman almost 15 years ago. Funny enough, this one stars Keaton as well although he won’t be playing the suited one this time around.
For whatever reason legions of fans seem hell bent on trashing this one before it even has a chance to suck all on its own but I know there are a few of you out there that are interested and for you I give you the official one sheet of ROBOCOP.
The official synopsis goes like this: The year is 2028 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 (Kinnaman) 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 their remarkable science of robotics to save Alexβs 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.
Keep it here, as the controversy grows we’ll be stoking the fire.
