While I’m not typically a fan out of the gate of reboots but RoboCop is looking pretty bad ass and certainly a lot leaner than he did in 1987 since Hostess went out of business. Anyway; given the new technology for movie making this one just might actually be much better than the original. We’ll have to wait to see if we’d buy this for a dollar.
In RoboCop, 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 Alex’s 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.
This video is from the set of Jose Padilha‘s remake which gives us a close up view of the motorcycle and RoboCop driving around on it! I really do love the design of the suit and cycle, the more I see of it the more I like it. This video was shot in downtown Toronto on October 18th, 2012. Check it out!
The movie stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams , Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
