New ROBOCOP Poster Brings Exactly What You Would Expect

  • Save
A new generic looking poster has been released for the new generic looking Robocop reboot, that’s due to hit theaters February 7th, 2014.  The poster falls in line with the glossy kid friendly tone that the trailer brought, and it looks like little of the gritty, satirical, ultra-violent aspects of Paul Verhoeven‘s original will be present.

As a fan of the character however, I’m still hopeful that the José Padilha directed reboot will breathe new life into the franchise.  Robocop stars Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel and Jackie Earle Haley, hit the jump to check out the poster.

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.
