We know all the cool kids have been complaining high and low about big bad Hollywood remaking Paul Verhoeven classic Robocop but as usual Upodcast has a different point of view and is kinda excited!
Here is the new trailer and a new poster.
There are some key elements that are different from the original, we are especially missing the crucifixion scene and other Christ allegories.
But still it’s great to see Michael Keaton back on screen.
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate 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.
