The new ROBOCOP reboot has chose an interesting path in their pursuit of letting fans know about its impending release. Part PSA and part commercial the following clip is slated to start airing across the county this evening.[youtube]http://youtu.be/rk_YTVo2JH8[/youtube]
In case you don’t know the facts, here is what ROBOCOP will bring to the table:
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.
This time around ROBOCOP stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Samuel L. Jackson.
Feb. 7th is the big day.
I normally try to reserve opinion before seeing a film, but this remake in particular looks fathermucking awful.
