It's been said through script leaks that the new Robocop "transforms" or something.
Check out the following teaser art; is it me or does this look like it belongs on the interior of a vehicle? Like a door?
And we do see the text "We've Got The Future Under Control."
I'm not sure what the end result is going to look like for the new Robocop - web reaction has not been kind - but one positive could be at least they are attempting to do something new with this movie, instead of the same old, same old.
Robocop opens August 9, 2013, directed by Jose Padilha, starring Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, and Gary Oldman.
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 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 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.
Director JosÃ© Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. RoboCop is being produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer. The film is currently in pre-production and slated for a summer 2013 release.
