"It's not a suit. It's you." We're still not sure if the remake of RoboCop is going to be anything but a blockbuster spectacle, but the most recent international trailer gave us some hope. Now a new international TV spot has arrived with some more footage from the film, including brief snippets of Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy before he becomes the cybernetic officer in question. We also get a glimpse into the vicious plans Michael Keaton and OmniCorp has to make sure Murphy stays under their control, as his human will seems to be overtaking their programming. Could this turn out to be a decent remake after all? Watch!
Here's the new international TV spot for Jose Padilha's RoboCop from Sony Pictures Taiwan:
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. Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton also star in RoboCop from director Jose Padilha and writer James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man). Sony Pictures sends the film to theaters on February 7th, 2014.
