The first clip from José Padilha’s RoboCop is now online. The action sequence puts title star Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) through his paces in the new robo-suit, one that’s quite a bit more mobile than the one found in the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic. Kinnaman’s Alex Murphy takes the suit through a training sequence in which he has to blast his way out of a veritable shooting gallery. It doesn’t look all that bad, but the terrible music track playing over the whole scene is more than a little bit distracting.
The film also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Samuel L. Jackson. RoboCop opens February 12, 2014. Hit the jump to watch the clip.

Here’s the official synopsis for RoboCop:
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.
