Couple of new clips for Robocop – OmniCorp wants you!
A couple of new clips for José Padilha’s upcoming RoboCop reboot popped up in my inbox today which I thought you might like to see. The first (above) is a PSA from the OmniFoundation where they want you to register your interest in ‘making a sacrifice for the greater good’… Well that’s not at all sinister, where do i sign (here apparently!)! 😉
The second is footage of a field test with the titular character kicking ass as OmniCorp put him through his paces…
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 (Joel Kinnaman – The Killing US) 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.
I was a big fan of Kinnaman in The Killing, so I’m looking forward to seeing how he settles into RoboCop’s shiny new outfit (although if I was him, i’d be slightly concerned about KITT asking for his visor light back). 😉
RoboCop is released to UK cinemas 7th February 2014.
