The new RoboCop film, starring The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman as Murphy/RoboCop, and directed by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad), was decried by some fans as a pointless remake, while others embraced the idea of a relaunch of the movie and TV series with fresh blood. After being delayed to February 2014, Sony debuted the first trailer to less-than-stellar opinions, they followed up with a great second trailer.
Now, the studio have released an international version of the RoboCop remake trailer, and it features Alex Murphy reborn as RoboCop and a lot more action and emotion. This one makes me more excited to see it. I was skeptical about a remake, but as a long-time fan of the first (and best) RoboCop with Peter Weller, I’m cautiously optimistic.
It also features a stellar cast, including Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, and more. It opens in IMAX and regular screens on February 12, 2014.
