Columbia Pictures and MGM just unveiled the first cip for its upcoming "RoboCop" reboot, starring Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, and Jay Baruchel. Check it out below.
Plot: The year is 2028 and 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 (Kinnaman) 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.
The new movie is directed by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) and is set to hit theaters on February 12th.
Who is Jay Baruchel playing? Is he the not-so-funny comic relief?

Talk about watering down a good scene with bad sound effects and a sh*tty soundtrack. The music from the trailer in this same scene gives it an entirely tougher feel than this video game music that is the actual soundtrack. I had high hopes for this after the first trailer, but now I am a little worried about how they chose to tame the material from the first film. There is nothing more memorable from the original than Robocop's gun and leg holster. It's design was completely unique at the time but its sound and the way they showcased it made movie history. Who doesn't appreciate the gun range scene where all the regular cops stop what they're doing the minute they hear that cannon going off. In this new trailer they replaced that iconic sound with a cheesy pop rock soundtrack and a lot of fast camera movements. I understand the need for doing this (for the lighter rating), but I don't really like the execution. Really not gonna fly well in the wake of such a great predecessor. You'd think that the fact that he is shooting drones not people would be enough to earn a pg-13 rating but its pretty obvious the studio (and the director) didn't want to take any chances. Hopefully this scene comes off better in the theater in its entirety and in the context of the story. Still going to buy a ticket.

Sounds like a remix of Focus' "Hocus Pocus". Not too bad. Gary Hoey does a tough version of it too.
