New International Trailer for RoboCop

Chris Savage

Several days ago we debuted the official trailer for José Padilha’s remake of RoboCop, and it seems that the general consensus was that most would actually check this one out. And I have to say, yeah, I’ll give this one a go even if I am highly skeptical and even though it slightly reminds me of Iron Man. But considering the talent involved in this one the only way is up, right?

Well, below we have scored the official International trailer and to be honest, it ain’t that much different than the previous one. Still, if you liked the last trailer give it a watch.

Synopsis: 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.

        I am skeptical as well. As talented as Padilha may be, he has never made anything like this before. Most of he’s works are documentaries and the Elite Squad movies are movies based in dialogue and social critics, and not action. Those movies don’t work that well outside the social reality of Brasil (especially part2). They got some action, but it’s not on the hollywood level. Their entertainment value is not on action, but social observation. So, I am not sure that this was the right project for Padilha to showcase he’s talent. Robocop sounds like something J.J. Abrahams would nail. Padilha would be very great in a Argo kind of movie.

          I still really need to check out Padilha’s past work. But seeing J.J. Abrams in the chair certainly has me thinking! :) I’ll rent this one out but I’m not expecting much, but who knows, eh?

          Bus 174 and Elite Squad are both awesome works. If you want to take a look at the face of true horror check Bus 174.
