ROBOCOP: Samuel L Jackson and Gary Oldman in the first trailer for the all new Robocop...

submit to reddit
Here's the first trailer for the  21st Century Robocop. Given that the original film was a subversive masterpiece of both violent entertainment AND subtext filled social commentary but everything that came afterwards was an abomination, feelings are decidedly mixed about this update.

"In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. 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."

there's a good cast, although most people will be unaware of who Joel Kinnaman is (Star of American TV show "The Killing", Petter Weller was hardly a household name before he gave a perfect performance in the original film.
Cast:-Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Samuel L. Jackson
