Jose Padilha’s RoboCop reboot is moving along very nicely indeed, we have had some outstanding casting announcements so far, but that’s about it. We are still none the wiser regarding plot details or even if a certain robot will return.
Well, while we still don’t have plot details, we do know that ED-209 is returning and he looks bigger and badder than ever, although I still prefer his earlier look. Below we have our first look at OmniCorps ED-209 as well as a sales video for OmniCorps latest creations, and there is even a brief glimpse of RoboCop.
From OmniCorp: “For a half-century, these words have set the framework upon which OmniCorp has aimed to build a brighter world.
We don’t do passive technology. At OmniCorp, our solutions generate a beacon of safety that we shine upon on the dangers of the day. No matter the obstacle – political, cultural, philosophical – we pursue our convictions around the globe to secure peace of mind at home. And when this requires bold new direction, we never allow doubt to shrink our duty. When your quality of life is in the balance, our leadership team will tip the scales.
Our products have elevated your lives. Our people have inspired your future. Our passion will always be at your side.”
The film stars Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy, Hugh Laurie as the CEO of OmniCorp, Gary Oldman as the scientist-creator and Samuel L. Jackson as the media mogul.
Look for RoboCop in theatres on August 9, 2013.
