The new Robocop trailer reveals a lot

robocop-2-behind-the-scenes-joel-kinnaman-01 - CopyThe new¬†Robocop trailer answers many of the questions that we had about the new Robocop. Why is Robocop¬†black? What happened to the original design? Is he going to say the infamous “Dead or alive, you’re coming with me”.

In this trailer you clearly see the back story of Alex Murphy was indeed changed. Instead of Red Forman gunning him down in an extremely violent fashion, he becomes paralyzed and loses limbs due to a car explosion in front of his home. It was great to see an image of the original Robocop and being that this is years later, I’m wondering if this takes place after or if they are going to mention the original Robocop at all.

I was most surprised in that this trailer actually seems to reveal that this movie has great potential and an all star filled cast. Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jay Baruchel, and Samuel L. Jackson all offer their name and acting abilities to this once considered doomed film. It was also finally revealed that he was, at one time, originally in his standard chrome-ish metal color, but was asked to be made more stealthy which is why he now looks like a gun-metal black. A full synopsis is available through iMDB:

“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.
