We are all sometimes a bit skeptical about remakes, especially when they are attempting to remake a classic. Such has been the case with "Robocop" but with the release of the first trailer, we think you may too change your mind as it looks pretty solid. Directed by José Padilha, Joel Kinnaman stars as the new metal machine, and he is supported by a fantastic cast including Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson.
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.
