I’m still on the fence about the upcoming Robocop reboot. It looks slick, I’m not going to lie. But with a new PG-13 rating, no Paul Verhoeven or Peter Weller; what chance does it possibly have? They did the same thing to the Total Recall reboot, and you saw the result of that one. No Heart. I’m hoping to be proven wrong, but only time will tell. Amazing cast though, and below is a new picture of Joel Kinnaman on a motorcycle looking cool.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Robocop stars: Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel and Jackie Earle Haley. The film opens February 7, 2014.
