Reminding me of the very clever Prometheus viral video where Guy Pearce appeared as Peter Weyland, and spoke of how his company was going to change the world, a viral video for Robocop has been released using the same formula. Here we have a presentation by Omnicorp, and how the introduction of policing robots is changing the face of the world, and stopping crime.
The video is interesting, and in a way quite chilling too. You will find the video below, along with a umber of new images released from the film.
Director José Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, with Abbie Cornish playing his wife Ellen, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, Jackie Earle Haley as Maddox, the man who dispenses the military training to Robocop, Michael Keaton plays Raymond Sellars, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak, and Aimee Garcia will play a scientists who helps put Robocop together. RoboCop is produced by Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, with Eric Carraro as Executive Producer.
Robocop is expected in UK cinemas 7th February 2014.
In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre 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 utilises 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.
